I pride myself on being a team player. When I say that, it’s meant to construe that I don’t mind coming into work when I get called in. It rarely happens, but when it does, I make my way in here. Now that I think about it, in the almost two years that I’ve worked at this spot, I’ve come every time they’ve called except for once or twice.
As I sit here at my desk I can’t help but think; do I work too much?
I work here at the hospital every weekend from 7 am to 7:30 pm. Although this may be seen as a damper by most, this is actually A good thing (Well, I think it is.) At my last job (also here at the hospital), I worked certain shifts during the week, but I’d have off every pay weekend. That job was cool because they made my work schedule around my school schedule and then during school breaks, I’d work full time. Although the hours were cool the pay was so-so and the actual job was BS. But I can’t complain too much because it paid the bills.
The new job (my current job) is cool as well because I have the opportunity to get homework done here, but it’s put a damper on my “social life”. It didn’t bother me much at first because 1.) I didn’t really go out that much, 2.) I’m not much of a club person. 3.) Who wouldn’t mind making extra money?
Over the past few weeks I’ve been doing alot of thinking. If I were to reminisce later on in life about my college days, what memories would I have, besides working and going to class? Not many if I stay on the current path i’m on now.
For all of my blog readers that are college graduates or are employed full time, how did/do you maintain a work/school/life balance?
