Besides work, I'm over run with class, a research internship, and grad school applications.
I need this job for experience and to fund all my applications... but I'm just so sick of always working.
I'm so tired of being left out of weekend plans. I'm jealous of my boyfriend, whom I live with, because he will often have friends over on the weekends. I usually come home to the aftermath of a dirty apartment and a tipsy boyfriend to tuck into bed. Meanwhile, when I am off work and have a day free, no one is available to do something fun.
Well, that’s an individual balancing act. I think everyone is going to be different because what you say to yourself and what you can tolerate will not be the same for each person. In other words, someone might find it worthwhile to do a job they don’t really like because it gives them financial freedom to do things they absolutely enjoy like traveling, buying nice cars, etc. Another person wouldn’t find it worthwhile because they’re not interested in that type of stuff and working is a big part of their lives because it takes up the majority of the week and a big chunk of the day so it is important to like what you do at minimum. Everyone is going to be different and their reasons for working a job will be different. I think you have to deep analyze yourself, how you feel, what your life purpose is, what your goals are, etc. I think doing this will orient you towards the proper direction.
