I just got offered another job. And my life is now a mess of settling the admin side of things, waiting for training, and trying to tie loose strings together before the semester begins. I feel tired and wary, if not unhappy. I’ll be heading to uni 3 times next week even before the semester begins for work. And I wonder if I have bitten off more than I can chew.
Is there a way of maintaining a perfect GPA whilst wanting more money, experience and fun? Or, more importantly, is this even significant in the bigger picture of things? Is it worth the stress I am putting myself under if I end up not being able to make it professionally at all?
Above anything, self, I wish you saw brighter days ahead instead of meaningless existence and stopped struggling so hard for nothing. You cannot always win. And it is okay to stumble and fall, as long as you get up and try again.
On a more positive note, there are plans to road trip down the east coast and chase the southern lights in tassie with my cousin over winter. We always seem to plan for trips over the new year, and I realise that life is terribly exciting when you have money to blow and time to spend.
