Since leaving university...any job found gave me the same whirlwind of emotions
1) Stress during the application period

4) Stressed within a week due to the job itself
5) Severe depression seeing the deductibles from that little blue slip

You understand, for example, that seasonal sales allow brands to catch up to each other so one doesn’t monopolise the market and they all profit, TV Subscriptions, Clothing releases and many more industries have similar strategies.
