Master of Architecture (MArch)
I constantly hear my friends complain about work. They say that the workload has become heavier than before. They say that people are working longer yet earning less. They say that their life is out of their control and their dreams had died. I feel pathetic when I hear these comments. Will I have to become one of those busy bees after graduation? Living a life that centered around compromising work and gradually losing the way?
"996" is a common work schedule now in China under which the employees work from 9 am to 9 pm, 6 days a week. The young generation dives directly into "996" after graduation without a moment to figure out what kind of life they truly want to live. Many of them hate their current jobs but have no idea how to switch. Anti-996 Apartment is a place for young people who are changing careers to temporarily relieve and do self-training, find peers, and prepare for entering the new field.
