Tonight at work, I was going through the same old routine: taking orders, running food, yada yada...all while wearing a fake smile and pretending like I love my job. (You see, I wanted to be an actress when I was younger and my acting skills come in handy in this line of work.) Back to the point, it got me thinking about all the "jobs" I currently hold and how it's not easy to balance them all. (Hence, the new name of my blog.) On top of working in the restaurant for six years, I am a student. I have one year left until I will leave this job and begin teaching. Yay...it can't come soon enough.
Because of my class and work schedule, it's not easy to make sure I give attention to my family, fiance, and friends. Some of them complain that I never have free time because my schedule stays pretty full. But, what can I do? I don't really have a choice. I'm being pulled in five directions, trying to stay afloat. I suppose life will always be a balancing act; I just have to learn to adapt.
