In honor of graduation season.
This past five months have been quite occupied. For the first time in my life as a student (for the first time in my life EVER!) I got a full-time job. YIKES!
Back in January, I wasn't sure what to expect when I got the job. I thought to myself, "How hard can it be?". Well, it was pretty hard. Trying to keep up with the coursework for five classes my senior year, while aiming to grow a healthy and successful ministry. It wasn't easy, but that doesn't mean that it's wasn't worth it. The takeaway lessons from this past season were many but the main one is this: Manage your workload.
If you find yourself in a similar situation where you're a student and you're also an employee... manage your workload. Assign specific days of the week where you can focus in your life as student and set the other days for work. Do not overwhelm yourself trying do to everything at the same time. God calls us to live in peace (1 Corinthians 7:15). Don't forget to make time to do the things that you love and to spend time with your family and your community.
