Work. Eat. Sleep. Repeat. 


Sometimes I feel like I’m doing nothing in my life. Sure, my new job makes me feel great… but at the same time I get bored of this cycle. I hate the feeling like I wake up everyday to work. I wish I could be out exploring the world, learning new things. Alas, I have to make money.

Being fairly young it’s daunting to think that in 10 years I’ll be in the same cycle, maybe add a husband and kids. As a child I thought adulthood meant doing whatever you wanted: staying up late, hanging out with friends, watching movies, and going shopping. I knew work existed, but I hadn’t quite grasped the idea that you work everyday!

It would be great if didn’t have to work so much and instead could spend time doing things we enjoyed. I know realistically speaking that it wouldn’t be possible because nothing would happen. We would have no doctors, teachers, and cashiers. Everyone would be out indulging in their hobbies.

I’m not saying I never want to work, I just wish there was more of a balance.

Does anyone else feel like they want to escape this endless cycle?

    the goal isn’t to balance out your work with what you love, the goal is to find work that you love. its not a balance, it’s an intersection. 88% of people are dissatisfied with what they do for living, don’t be that person. do you respond to comments? or just ‘like’ them?

    The work/life balance is a constant struggle – even for people who seem to have it down. I don’t remember a vacation I ever took with my parents growing up where they weren’t also working while we were there. You’ll find a balance that works for you someday. Once you start earning vacation time, it might be a little easier to take a day. That’s my hope for myself, too.

    of course! I totally agree girl… I’m very tired cause my work is 6×1. Plus, there are days that I work from 2:30 pm til 11 pm and the next day from 6:45 am to 3pm (which is exactly what I’m doing) and i’m exausted x__x I wish a had an entire day to sleep but unfourtunately my one free day I spend doing everything I want, don’t stop moving so…. yeah, I get it, it sucks ;_;
