5 Things That You Will Relate to if You Work A Lot

Working a full-time job can be taxing, especially when most of your friends have part-time jobs that only require them to work a couple days per week. So then they're always making plans and your response is the same: "I'm working." And speaking as someone who technically works a 40 hour week but usually ends up working significantly more, I'm just as tired of saying that I'm working as you are of hearing it.

1. You don't really know what's going on in the outside world.

Your schedule is: Eat. Sleep. Work. Repeat.

2. Your days off are sacred and should not be messed with.

A day off does not mean a day to catch up on everything else you've been slacking off on, it means you don't want to get out of bed.

3. Tired is no longer a surprise, it's an integral part of who you are.

What is this "well-rested" thing people talk about?

4. You telling me I work a lot only makes me mad.

I KNOW I WORK A LOT.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

13037

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
