But I'm not complaining.
I work a total of 5 jobs, or 60 hours per week on average.
My four part-time jobs are to help me to gain experience in the field I would like to go into. It's really hard to break into the field without experience, so I'm gaining it any way I can. I started out by volunteering, and was eventually hired.
I'm planning on going to graduate school in January, so I will have to cut back a little then to concentrate on my studies. But I will probably continue to work at least 40 hours per week.
Sure, I'm tired a lot, and don't get to see my husband as much as I would like, but I'm paving the way for a fantastic career someday.
