The pro’s and con’s of working whilst studying…

These current days, most people can’t afford to study to further their education and not work. I also work full time in hospitality whilst partaking in a Masters in Scriptwriting and with all my late finishes and early starts , it’s a real struggle. I’m constantly tired, endlessly trying to maintain a social life and spend time with the people I most care about and having time to myself.

I’m not the type of person who would have wanted to go back to education after a gap year however there would have been real benefits in doing so.

Pros

I complete my degree quicker.

I am going to feel so self accomplished.

I can begin my career sooner.

I don’t have any debts as I paid as I went.

Cons

I’m constantly tired.

I struggle to maintain a balance.

My work suffers because of my working life.

I can’t enjoy the benefits of working.
