Goes to show you how caught up we get on life- I totally forgot today was Thursday. Jesus, time flies. Going on that note of forgetting what day of the week it is, let’s take a sec to talk about stress and the struggle. I was just talking, yesterday, about how difficult it is to survive in the world today. Why is it so freaking complicated to get an education and make a living at the same time? Why don’t schools and jobs compromise with each other. Like, it’s not our fault we’re wanted by everyone- joking. But am I, really? For example, I recently got a new job (yay, congrats me, right?) and when telling my professor that I’m going to need to take a week off from classes to go through training, my professor told me I should think about dropping the class if I don’t have time.. Well, when am I ever going to have time? That’s the problem with today’s world. Obviously we need to work to make a living for ourselves, but we also want a better education for our future selves. But it’s never simple. We, as students and adults, are juggling between work and school and no one seems to appreciate it. Times are different, it’s not as easy as it once was. Or, here’s a different perspective, not everyone’s parents said, “hey, you don’t worry about money and having a job, we’ll take care of that. You just go to school.” Like HELLO, some of us have to bust our @$$**. This is just a reminder to people who are struggling with these two, work and school, that you’re not alone. There are plenty of us out there, and as one of these people let me just say to those in the same boat: I appreciate you, and your struggle.
