As the end of the year is drawing near I really wonder how I managed to do some things. Like working two jobs while going to school and still have time for outside of school activities which I have been doing for the past month. And although I am dying of stress from time to time.
But I think I found a balance that works for me and I have friends that cheer me up when I am down. And now even my classmates could cheer me up by explaining something I don’t get, or work hard on projects we do together.
I think it works well for me, so I wonder why other people chose not to have a job and then complain about not having money or chose to meet friends instead of doing homework. Because I noticed that real friends understand that you have to work hard from time to time and you don’t have time to see them. They just let you do your thing and then when you do see them again, you have a lot of fun catching up.
As I read in this book about managing yourself, we tend to do things that make us happy on a short term and therefore we avoid doing things that we should do, even if it’s stupid things like doing the dishes or in our case homework. And I notice I still do sometimes just out of habit, while I know it’s wrong. What really works for me is knowing where I want to be in the future and how some things , like going to school and working and taking some courses on the side. I do give myself a day off, once in a while.
And I’m not saying I’m perfect, because I’m not at all. Every person is different and I’m just sharing what works for me. Although I really could use a holiday right now;).
