Hehe...im a student, so i have no idea about working. im still dependent to my parents, but im really want to work and gain money, more than my parents do. Heheh... But i did try some part time job, being paid for rent something or doing something that people will pay me, like join the competition and win a certain amount of money. Even in my school life, im so perfectionist in doing everything, how about if i work someday? hehehe... But for me, school life is really tiring compare to the work life. Because studying is a really difficult thing for many people and im belong to this group. Im not smart person, but i try my best to survive in hard times when come that i need to face very hard subjects.. let say pharmacology, immunology, hematology, clinical chemistry, and bacteriology. Hmm... They are really interesting subjects but how hard my instructor made it during quizes and examinations... arggghhh!!! ANyway, i can still enjoy it because through all the hard time, i always push myself to be better day by day and its no different from working, because if you cant push yourself to do your work with positive thinking that you will success then you may fail... just like studying, while others working for gain money, im working to gain grades for my certificate. Hehhehee... I heard from my friends who already finished their college and enter the professional life, working is enjoyable because you will get money after all... hehehe... of course yes... money! When you receive it, you can have it being saved in bank, invest it, and especially spend it for what you need and want! You dont need to ask your mom and dad to buy a car for you because you can afford that and you can drive it wherever you want and even break the glass if you make trouble while driving! ahahah... nobody will blame you because you're the one who buy it and break it! ahahahha... you know, mylot-ers... i promise to myself that with my own hands, i can buy nice brand new sport car and have beautiful house that i will design... complete with its pool and garden with many tropical plants in that garden. Im going to plant durian, jackfruit,a nd other tropical fruits in the country. And the garden is big enough for family gathering, bbq party and other activities... i want my family enjoy the atmosphere in that house...

I am a full-time student and I work full-time. It's difficult to say which is better when they are meshed like mine are. However, I have taken time from school to just work, and I can honestly say that I am looking forward to the day (in 15 weeks!) that I can just work and not go to school. I love my job and the people I work with, and it will be nice to just work and then have spare time after for other stuff. Some of the classes that you have mentioned are classes that I have taken. What are you studying?

Im taking bachelor of medical laboratory science program. Before it was bachelor of medical technology... hehe. Im liar if i say those subjects are easy... hmm... and my parents wanted me to proceed to medical school after i finish my medtech program. I think i still need to study for 4-5 years more, until i will work. But i dont think that im going to work in the hospital, im kinda person who is difficult to work with others. Maybe im going to open my own clinic... hehehe No idea. I just need to finish my premed and take my national examination for medschool... thats my goal for now.

I would have to say I miss my school life. College was very fun for me. I was blessed to be surrounded by a great group of friends and we had a blast. I miss it alot. Im greatfull to be working though. I've had my job for 2 years now but my life is so boring as compared to when I was in school. I hardly have time to do anything but what is necessary. I miss being able to do things in the middle of the day. To go to the park or just take walk when the weather is nice outside. Now when its mid-day and nice outside I just have to settle for looking out the window. I think it would be better if more of my friends lived near me. When can't really hang out, we all just mainly talk over the phone. But i can't change that. Enjoy school while you can!!

i have worked for 4 years, sometimes i miss the time when i am in school or college, don't have to think how about future, just think how to get good grade. don't have to think how to afford a house or a car with low salary, just enjoy with friends, don't have to think who will be my wife or husband. don't have to think what will you gonna do with your salary to make a good living later, don't have to think about your investment,etc. i think every season of our life have its own problem and happiness. so enjoy it when you can.

I am answering your discussion just by reading your Title. I think I my school life was more enjoyable than my work life. When I was in school I very different kind of person means sporty, naughty, etc. But when I started my job I found that I am really very quite and shy person because there was always some job pressure that never led my naughty and sporty part to come out. bye

I think I enjoy both. When I was at school, I enjoy some lessons, school life with the schoolmates, hanging out with the school mated after school, talking about which boy is the cutiest in the scool sports team and stuff like that. I enjoy the time of working too because I was lucky that I didn't need to do much in my last job, just went to work and went online, play games then didn't need to work really hard and have saturday and sunday off. I think I enjoyed both, but now I would rather working than studying becaus eI wnat to earn money.

for me school life is happier than work life since during school life all you have to think are the assignments & exams that are given by the teachers while in work life, aside from thinking of your works to finish, when pay day comes you have to budget your money and even have a hard time budgeting..hehehe..lol!..^^

Just like you, I am still a student myself. Though I have heard from my friends who are already working that the student life is more enjoyable. Their jobs are really tough. But what is good about their job is that it pays good money. While still in school we are still dependent. When we get to work, we get to earn money which is even higher in amount that our allowance. That is the cool part about working.

Most enjoyable for me is being a student because i could have what i want and my parents provide it for me. Unlike when you start to work, you earn on your own and you have to be dependent on yourself more than to ask parents for financial help. When you start to work, you will be the one to provide for yourself and to your parents, in this time, it is now your turn to give back the kindness that your parents gave you when you are still studying. And to help them financially is one of your goal. During schooldays you are just pressured about your studies. But when i started to work, i got pressured from my job, having a love life and great challenges awaits me. So i consider school days much better. But we have to grow, we have to move on so we have to work. Happy Mylotting!

Ofcourse my school life i mean that`s the best part of my life i miss it so so much i wish i could go back to school. You don`tr have to worry about anything while you were in school you have bunch of friends do pranks with them and moreover no one actually says you anything because people feel that you are still a child while when in your work life you are not allowed to commit any sort of mistakes you are theratened to fire right away.....

Well, I think it is an interesting and argumentative issue. There is a saying: you are always pursue for what you don't have. Students want to join the society and earn money as soon as possible, while office workers prefer to back to the school life which is simple and happy. When I was a student, I had thought that I wouldn't need to take exams if I went to work. But now, the fact is that I have to face more strict exams for getting engineer qualification or other certification. And the social relationship is much simplier in school life. Teachers and schoolmates don't have really conflict of interest with you. However, you have to cope with different human connections during the work period. Sometimes, you can't express your own opinion, as you have to follow the boss ideas, or even you have to flatter your boss or clients. The biggest advantage of work is of course gaining money, and you could buy something you couldn't afford before without asking for your parents.

In my view school life and work life both are enjoable but top priority for scholl life only. Enjoyment in school like mosty depends on our surrounding like school,freinds. environment and parents. In rural areas mostly on surroundings. In work life there compulsary responsibilty is there which will enforce away from enjoy life oftenly. Here also surrounding influence is there. But we have to come know personally, the taste of fruit whether sweet or sour.

That's a good promise manya_pearl. When I was still studying, I always wished I can already work. Now that I'm working, I missed the benefits of being a student. Enjoy while you're still a student because once you hit the world of work, you'll always look back to student days and its benefits.

When I was at school, I so dream to work and can't wait till I graduate. Now, that I graduated and all and currently working, I wish I could go back to my school days, lol . Your question says more enjoyable, so it would have to be school life. You know, when you're working, you really don't think of enjoying especially if you're in an entry-level position all 'cause you're concentrating and focusing on your work and sometimes, the routine is just too exhausting, trust me. So, don't rush, trust me, school life is more fun. When you're working, you're depending on no one but yourself and problems will start to pop out.

They're both tiring and I enjoy it! But I'm just starting to earn money...in my profession it is not easy become an employee...I just have to gain experience first to gain real money in the future. It is not easy to be an instant successful person. Must work hard for it to be able to have a reward.
