Dear Blogger,

I'm beginning to think that maybe returning to work isn't such a good idea. It isn't really for me. I shouldn't blame it on myself. I was contend just being a stay-at-home mom, even if it doesn't give me much economic prowess. Why suffer so much stress just for the sake of a earning a few thousand dollars a month? It really is not worth it.

Unfortunately, I can't quit. I'm shackled by a 15-month bond. I guess I would still be able to tolerate if I was just left alone. I am more productive if I am given autonomy to do my work. Teamwork is great and all but so is my individual space. I need my space at work!

Don't you just it when there's a leech in the office? You know, the type who wants things to be done her way but doesn't want to do them herself? She's usually an older person with years of "experience", yet can't do things herself because she knows there are other younger people who can do them for her.

Maybe if my work has some male staff the dynamic will be different. That's like asking for snow to fall in Singapore. I don't know why I've always work in women-dominated organisations. I really should have known better. Oh! I remembered why! I thought I was mature enough to handle women by now. Guess I was wrong. You don't see and feel this toxic air in a male-dominated organisation. How do men do it?
