“The thought that that is so many people’s work lives which will be the disproportionate percentage of how they live their lives breaks my heart. If I can get one person to be like, ‘Fuck, he’s right, like what the hell am I doing here?” Please do not waste the next five, ten, fifteen, twenty, thirty years of your life and allocate thirty, forty, fifty, sixty percent of your time to something that you cheer to end each and every week. If you genuinely celebrate Friday, you need to rethink your entire fucking game.”
