Everyone is different, don't rush growing up.

I was 18 when i got my first stable job. It was hard to focus on school, work, and having time for things that I enjoy doing. I couldn't balance everything at once back then.

My first stable job was full-time coming into my freshman year in college, before I was working part time while I was in high school and it was sort of easier to manage my schedule because I requested my own work schedule.

This professional recommends the following next steps:

  • Now it is easier for me to balance everything in life. I work full time, school full time, rotc and army full time, and having time for fun and my friends.
  • Good Part: being financially stable and not having to ask my parents for help. Being able to do the things I enjoy and wanting to buy without having a budget from someone else and being able to set me own limits.
  • Bad Part: having to balance between work and school, getting to relax and have fun, and still getting homework and studying done. Not having enough time as I want to get involved on campus how i'd like to when I first started working. Leaving what goes on at work, at work.
