Top 5 Most Soul-Killing Jobs That You Can Take

Learn about some of the most stressful jobs that you can take, and what exactly makes them so horrible.

Top 5 Most Soul-Killing Jobs That You Can Take

There are some jobs that, while necessary, are not for the faint of heart. Many of these jobs can show the worst parts of humanity, and for those who are not a part of these industries, it is important to empathize and respect what these people go through on a daily basis.

Event Coordinator

This job involves you planning out events at your employer's behest. Normally, and hopefully, the only stress in this situation should come from the deadline. However, many people often overestimate how much work a single person or a small group of people can do, and end up shoving a boatload of work on someone who isn't able to handle it.

Wedding Planner

On a similar topic to the last one, being a wedding planner is an incredibly stressful job, regardless of the payoff. It involves many meetings with clients who often don't know what they want exactly. It is slightly understandable since each couple is planning their special day, but giving one person the task of continuously planning other's special days can get extremely taxing.

News Reporter

Still on the same branch, News Reporters are often sent off daily to write articles by a very close deadline, often with no breaks. They can be sent to places with raging thunderstorms, the aftermaths of a still living hurricane, or anywhere else on the drop of a dime to think of an article to write. Not to mention the backlash received from readers regardless of how good or bad their article was.

Military Personnel

A main problem with being a news reporter is being sent out without warning. That is life in the military. This doesn't even mention the obvious side effects of being sent into battle day after day with basically no will of your own. PSTD, insomnia, isolation, and anxiety are common problems that hound soldiers before and after they come home.


Finally we get to a job that arguably introduces you to possibly some of the dumbest people you can ever have the pleasure of meeting. While the average retail customer is a nice, well-behaved adult who wants nothing more than to get their stuff and leave, every so often you'll encounter one that seemingly operates solely on entitlement. Especially considering the fact that most people who take these jobs are teenagers, the stress can be overwhelming to often of the time.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
