How are you making ends meet?
Getting through college can be tough – financially. In college, I was always working to help pay the bills, rent, books, and school. It was never easy but it was definitely always a fun challenge. I had to start working as soon as I turned sixteen though so I was already working a couple years before college. My freshmen year I was volunteering very often and picked up a second job.
Right before my finals week at the end of my first collegiate year, I attended an audition that changed my life. I started a career in Entertainment, which I had always wanted to start but did not know how. I started this third job as I moved to live on campus at my university. Since I was trying to be as active as possible at school, I easily found jobs for work study. By my third and last year of college, I had two on campus jobs, in addition to my three other jobs that I was trying to juggle with a full-load of coursework.
While this sounds like hell (and at sad, hard, and desperate times, it was), the entire experience taught me so much about work that I like to do, hate to do, and love to do. I found my passions as well as potential career fields that I may want to pursue. More importantly, I was able to gain outstanding people skills, how to partner with a team, and time and project management. I learned so many different lessons that I hope I will be able to share with you on this blog about school and work.
