Or have you worked 3 jobs? What kind of jobs are they? And how do you manage your schedule? I was thinking about it, ans if it so happens I am gonna work 3 jobs, one from 9am to 12nn then 12:30 to 7pm then another maybe projects to do at home and during saturdays... I don't really know whether I should do it that way or just drop the 2 other jobs especially the 12:30 to 7 one since it is farther from where I am staying... I am kinda thinking it through still, and wondering if anyone has done that before or maybe work 3 jobs now and how it is like...

I think this is crazy. You need to have a rest to recover all the brain cells you lose every day. Thinking the whole day will make you crazy, not to mention make you dumb haha...

I'm already dumb... hahaa.. kidding, I actually quit one job now, it was my last day a today... and I am kinda happy and sad to leave, happy that I will be relieved of the stress and kinda sad that I won't be seeing the kids anymore.. but then afterall, feels better.

I have worked 3 jobs at one time-2 full time and 1 part time- until one day I woke up at noon but had no idea if it was daytime or night time(I had tin foil on the window to sleep easier). I remember the panic in me thinking I was late for one job or another and realized then I was working too much.I dropped the part time and stayed with the 2 full timers for another 6 months.

When I was younger I worked 3 jobs for quite a while. I had just gotten out of the military and was trying to get on my feet out in the civilian world. I had a job from 7 am to 5 pm as a dental assistant, then 3 nights a week after the dental office I went to a waitressing job and on the weekends I worked as a bartender.

i think three jobs especially is alot of work:P I know we can all handle it for some time but it is stressful and definitely something you need to think about and consider if you want to live to work or work to live. It will drive you insane at some point that all you do in your life is work and no fun. Maybe one or two is enough. Put a little enjoyment for yourself no matter how we all need the money :)

I did work 3 jobs for quite some time. I was teaching in the board of education from 8-4, then teaching languages at a private school from 5-7:30 and then I was cleaning up an office from 9-midnight( sometimes more ). I did it at a time when my husband had lost his job and things got pretty hard for us financially, even after he started working again. My husband was also working 3 jobs by the end because the new job he got was paying 1/3 of what he was making before. I would not suggest this to anyone. We were both exhausted, had no energy at all and in the end with so many working hours and differences in schedules it ended up almost costing me my marriage. People need time to relax and do things with friends and family.

if i were you, just do it and learn,earn and decide along the way. at least, while you are thinking whether to continue working with three jobs or not,you are already earning but i should remind you that life is not all about yourself and all about working. you got to have quality time with with yourself.not with your family and friends but with yourself or else you will have a burn out .be careful.
