school or work

February 4, 2010 5:29am CST
which is better? studying or working? i hear lots of people who are already working say that life was much easier when they were still studying. on the other hand, lots of students are wishing to finish their studies as soon as possible to be able to start working and earn their own money. what would you choose between the two?

I will choose work. On the other hand, because I am also hearing from others that it is not easy to work and better to go to school, I will just enjoy my school days.

Well, you do get paid for going for work. So work does have that going for you. School tends to be just as stressful as many jobs, without the monetary benefits. However, it really depends on the day whether or not I would choose school or work. There are just some days where I prefer one as opposed to the other. Both have their days that are good and their days that are extremely stressful.

Let's see. If you like making money , well working should be nice. Studying is much more fun for people who wants to know new things everyday and can stand lectures. You should try part time if you are short of cash.

Hallo...friend...If you have the chance to go for further study then I will suggest you to grab the opportunity. Because school time is the most beautiful, hold it as long as you can. Once you leave the school, you will grow old faster, because you have to worry of many things, face the reality of the cruel life, facing hundreds of wearing mask people surround you in the company, nobody will show their true colours in front of you. Although you dont have to worry about the exams but you have to worry being sacked. So you think which is better? I should say : Schooling!!!

Depends on where you are in life. I'm a full time student and while I enjoy some things I also wish that I would have a job so that I could earn my own money and live the life I would like to live. As for a job. Well, it depends on the job. If you get a job that your really interested in than I doubt that you will get bored anytime soon as long as your doing something that you enjoy. Of course studies will look better if you jut get some job you can't stand..

Hi, The answer is a bit diplomatic. It all depends on how do u see life. I have some friends who were happy when they were student and they are happy now also when their job is 9am to God knows!!! Personally I would like to go back to my school and college days. There was no tension at that time expect of studies.
