Today, I’ve been feeling particularly stressed. With an exam today and two deadlines due in by Friday, university has been taking over my life. But, also having three late evening shifts at work this week has prevented me from having much free time to complete my work. But, I need to work to earn the money I need to live near my university, away from my family.
Finding balance in life can be difficult.
I know that university is my priority and I make sure that it is. But, I also need to find time to work and also do fun things to escape. For the past few months, I’ve found it very difficult to have any free time and when I do have free time, I’m spending it shopping, doing washing or other chores that are necessary.
Three more days to go and I get a break. But, that break will still consist of revising and completing assignments. However, I knew what I signed up for when I chose to go to university and I know all of this hard work will be worthwhile in the end.
When I find myself having difficult days, I try to talk to my friends about it and make plans where I set out my priorities for each day. Time management is very important in my life at the moment and I like to think I’m particularly good at it and constantly improving.
Anyway enough about me. I’d love to know in the comments below what your tips on life balance are.
