Workin' Woman

Working this summer and last summer 9-5 has really opened my eyes about what it's like to be a part of the working world. It's such a different pace than waking up every morning, throwing on norts and a t-shirt and going to class all day. I'm not sure if you can compare the two really. 

What I love about school is that every day is different. You're really not in class for that many hours and you have a lot of your day free to do whatever (even if it's usually spent doing homework). But what's great about working every day is that when the clock strikes 5 every day, I'm done. I can go back to my room and don't have to worry about staying up until 1 o'clock in the morning doing homework. I love that my weekends truly are breaks. I don't have to worry about spending all day Sunday preparing for the next week. Definitely advantages to both and it's exciting that I could take either route after college!

Speaking of throwing on norts and a t-shirt, you can't exactly do that when you're working. With a limited wardrobe up here I've had to get creative with my outfits every day. This outfit was the perfect work outfit and nice and cool with the unbearable heat the last few days.

  2. You're so right about how the working world is different from going to school everyday. I'm a teacher now after literally being in school my entire life and so it's a mix of both for me. A little more freedom, but unfortunately my breaks aren't "Breaks" like I wish they were-I'm constantly prepping for the next school day!
