Which one is harder for you -- school or work?

It was more laid back when i was still in school. Although I went through struggles but nothing major (except when i was doing my thesis). I was in charged with the data management that kept me awake until wee hours in the morning for 2years. When i started working, t'was fun and exciting but it has slowly exhausting me. When i'm having those days, there are no other course of action but to drag myself out of bed and go to work or else i'll start updating my resumé then ( which is going to more exhausting eventually ) . Unlike when in school, there's make up classes, i can miss a day without submitting a medical certificate, i can procrastinate though loaded with assignments, my school money wont get deducted if i go on absent, etc.. But yeah, don't get me wrong -- not complaining, just comparing.. Im bored today.

I loved school, the work was challenging. I was in the work world long before I went to college, and school is much better - no competition. Work you're always fearful they'll fire you. Which they did three years ago at the worst time in my life for that to happen, when I'm too old for anyone to consider hiring me.

Not much to work since I just help with the family business. It was fun before when I was working but school has filled with good memories and you can absent one or twice a month or a week. But I was a good student and back in college I did drop some of my subjects so that I could make up for them in summer, and in summer class, you meet new people.

It was the other way around with me. School was harder to me because after going to school there were also assignments and projects to do and I was really studying hard then to keep my scholarship. Work though hard gives me good reasons to smile during paydays.

When I was a student, I thought working would be easier. Now I worked and I changed my mind. Working is much more harder than study in school. Since you not only have to focus on your job, but also pay attention to have a good relationship with your colleagues. And sometimes you even have to sacrifice your spare time for work.
