    Since I got this job, I have learned that time is really precious. I'm spending 30 minutes for preparation, 6 hours at work, 1 hour travelling, 7 hours at school, 1 hour to eat, the rest are for studying and sleeping. If there are a lot of books to read, my sleeping time will be...

    I work 2 jobs to support my family.

    Right now I am working at 14 hour shift and ill do the same tomorrow. Working 60-70 hrs a week is exhausting. Its a good thing I enjoy both of my jobs or I would be completely miserable.

    It is time to get back to the grind.

    Sometimes I feel like all I do is work. Sometimes two days off are just not enough. I need a vacation.
