Working nights while attending school

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello friends ,

Just curious about the subject of working while attending cia. I currently work weekend nights and one weeknight while attending school in a small bar doing simple plates. Everyone seems to think that I'm crazy but I feel fine. I'm in my mid twenties, been working in restaurants since I was 15 and have done previous formal training in a vocational school and attended a local college while working weekends. Instead of going out with friends first I get homework done and read books.

If I have time I surely go and have a nice dinner, enjoy a cold beer and watch some sports. Not working really isn't an option and I wish to not take out more loans than I need. I am financially dependent and really just work to pay a car payment, insurance, phone etc. I've already noticed that I'll have all my homework done and understood well before anyone even starts it. My lab classes are on my off days and I get done mid afternoon, that's when I do laundry, read, do more work and the weekends I don't work until late so instead of messing around I stay in and bang out work.

Sure my social life is lacking but I'm not quite concerned about that, I spend a lot of money to come here and I think to be the best I have to press on and not worry about being the most popular. My roommate is cool, I've met a lot of people including a beautiful young lady and life seems to be pretty sweet. What do you guys think, am I crazy for working my way through school or is everyone just from a different state of mind where mom and dad can support them?
