7 Things Students That Work Part-Time Are Tired Of Hearing

"You can't eat this in class."


If you are a student and you work part-time you probably know the struggle of balancing classes, work, and a social life. It's hard to have shifts lined back to back with classes and if you're like me and constantly on the go back and forth from work to school, you've probably heard people ask you these annoying questions.

1. "You can't eat in this class."

Listen I just worked or am about to go to work. I pay thousands in tuition a year and as long as I'm quiet and don't leave trash I don't understand why I cant munch on some chicken nuggets from Chick-fil-A.

2. "Did you do the assignment due in a few hours?"

This is the most stressful message to receive especially when you're working and you forgot about an assignment while at work and you can't check on it while you're working obviously.

3. "Why are you wearing black pants in ninety degree weather?"

It's my uniform for work. It's not my choice.

4. "Can you show up to this event within a short period of time?"

I have to work so unless you let me know a week in advance or so I can't just not show up from work to go to your event.

5. "Why are you leaving this party early?

I need to sleep before I open tomorrow.

6. "Why do you smell like that?"

A lot of people that, especially if you work around food," you will probably smell like your job. Say you work at a salad place or a fried chicken place, you will probably have the smell on you if you run to class after your shift.

7. "Why can't you ever answer your phone?"

I'm working! I can't exactly stop and answer my phone!

8. "What's your schedule like?"

It's very busy off the top of my head...Just letting you know.

9. "Why do you work so much?"

Because I have to pay my bills.

It may feel like your part-time is a full time because, at the end of the day after classes and work, there's not a lot of time left. Student's that don't work may not understand this but at the end of the day, you're making money so the pain and stress are worth it!

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
