Be careful what you wish for, because two months ago I was waking up at noon, wasting my afternoon on Netflix, and hanging out with my boyfriend and friends until another blissful night of sleep. I had no job, school had yet to start, and my only daily commitment was going to the gym. Although I did take advantage of my time off, I was painfully bored, and grew excited for September. Now I am two weeks into school, working as a key-holder at my job, and I can barely find time to breathe.
First of all, I am not complaining, I absolutely love my job and the people I work with, it is such a breath of fresh air from my last job. School is amazing, the program is exciting and the people in it are all sweet and caring and everyone gets along. I am just busier than I have ever been, and finding a fine balance between work, school, and my personal life is more difficult than anticipated. Although my personal life is kind of dealt with, since my boyfriend lives 2 hours away and is also a full time student, we see each other for a few hours a weekend, which kind of sucks but you gotta do what you gotta do.
Let me walk you through my typical day; I wake up at 6am to start getting ready for class, shower, eat breakfast, and of course my makeup routine takes about half an hour. I am out the door by 8, class starts at 8 30, and usually goes until 2/3. Then I run over to work, which is conveniently right beside my school, and I work until close (9pm). Then I drag myself home, and do a simultaneous “make lunch/ eat dinner/ do homework” fiasco. Then hopefully I am asleep by midnight. I do that 5 out of 7 days a week. Yikes.
I figure this will only be a preview of what the future holds; if I want to be successful in PR then I need to be able to balance a million things on my plate at once without breaking a sweat. Orrrrr I will have a mental breakdown and learn nothing from this!
