When I first started my job, the two songs that played in my head every morning as I watched people walking in droves from the parking lot to the hospital were:
“Good morning” by Kanye West. (“don’t look around, just read this…ok look up now, they stole you’re streetness.”)
“Marching ants” by the Dave Matthews band.
It was official. I was an ant. But I didn’t want people to know that I thought we were all ants marching. So when my classmates whom I graduated with asked me if I liked my job, I smiled and said “yes.”
I’m a liar. I like taking care of people, but really, I accepted the role of being altruistic to protect my ego.
I’m a natural born hustler and the only person who believed in me was my dad. Why wasn’t that enough?
Now I’m just an ant, but not for long.
