Scratch that, big girl job=tired girl.
I know, I know, it's been forever.
Well let me tell you, even though I thought working Mon-Friday, 8-5 would be a breeze and much better than my sporadic schedule I had in the past, I am just as, if not more tired! Plus random nights out during the week are no longer appropriate. I've tried, and I do not do well in the morning.
Don't get me wrong I love finally having a job--and I know my friends and family do too (they were sick of hearing me complain about "getting college degree, working hard, traveling the country, and none of it pays off!"). Well I was wrong. Hard work will eventually pay off. And, even if your first (in my case second) job isn't exactly what you expected.. there is a reason you are there! It will get you somewhere in the future, and you'll most likely make tons of contacts.
So all you out there who are just entering the workforce, stay focused and make the best out of what you do! And for those who are still job hunting, enjoy this time off, and know that you will find that job when the time is right!
