Nowadays is very important and essential for everyone students to have and manage their own money. They have busy lives, especially someone who has to juggle more than one task per day. The people in particular that I am talking about are college students, that is why most them decide to work and study at the same time. But, sometimes to do both things at once can bring some cause that can affect different aspects of their life. There is no single right way to balance their classes with their job responsibilities.
Study and work at the same time could make students unable to focus on their study, stress and restless, less time for their families and friends to do activities and less time for time for themselves. All the things we do in life are to improve the way we live. We study, work, play sports, and make choices just to have a better social life. People who challenge themselves to work and study full-time will end up with a very bad social life especially those who are ESL students because of their English barrier.
Regarding our university duties: we try to do as much as we can to carry out all the homework and assignments we have, but sometimes we do not have enough time to do them. Maybe, we have to stay awake late at night for hours just to finish one work or to study for a huge test and the results are not always good, even though we have put a lot on effort it. We do not have enough time to do their homework correctly; their mind is full of mixed ideas and worries and also they suffer from physical exhaustion.
College students usually go out of their house to attend University early in the morning and come back late after doing their work in the evening or night, depending on your schedule. Our lives will be routine as living in a circle, waking up, going to school, going to work, coming back home, doing homework, sleeping, waking up, going to school, and so on. We do not have much time to share with our family or visit our friends and at some point that we are boring because we do not want to go out or do not visit them, but they do not understand that is not because we do not want to be just because we do not have the time.
We are too tired to do it, but that does not mean that we do not care about them. Lack of sleep is another biggest problem that working college students experience. They work eight or more hours a day, come back home, spend four or more hours doing schoolwork, and then they try to sleep for three or fewer hours a day. Doing this every single day will harm their health and their brain. Lack of sleep is the major cause of heart disease and high blood pressure. It kills the mood too. Working students will be having bad headaches and tiredness all the time.
They will be having bad moods even talk to their families and friends. Lack of sleep impairs attention and thinking. Plus working students will not be able to comprehend easily. They will be all the time in bad mood, under stress, and in extremely bad health The most important thing in life we have is time: without maintaining it, life will not exist. Studying and working at the same time will burn your time and will make you busy all the time to the point you will not feel yourself to be living. It will make you busy all the time; thus, it will also be a complicated duty; to control school and work.
For example, suppose you have some tests and a lot of homework, so you will have to skip some classes and take some days off work so you can study and do schoolwork. Sometimes you will have to skip classes because you didn’t have chance to do the homework. Other times you will skip classes because you have a test and you didn’t study for it. Working students get fired because they try to take advantage of their free minutes at work to do schoolwork. So lack of time will ruin both of them and you will not succeed on either one.
We believe that working is important for people nowadays but it may affect the students when they do part-time job and study at the same time. That was the biggest challenge, to manage your time between college and work. But, there is no magic trick: time management is the only way to achieve. There is no more than 24hours per day and even if we wished for more hours, it won’t happen! In the other hand, having a part time job while attending school helps students in being better prepared for the real world. Students also improve at multitasking and taking charge of their own life affairs.
Robinson stated that most students didn’t work for financial reasons but because they liked the independence their job gave them, the enjoyment they derived from their work, and those who were employed were more likely to be happy with many aspects of their lives such as money and social life than those who didn’t have a part time employment. Part time jobs give the students an opportunity to enhance their learning. Moreover, students who hold part time jobs are also better prepared to handle surprises and setbacks in the beginning of their professional career due to their more realistic expectations and understanding of work culture.
