Maybe I am just workaholic, or maybe I am so desperately need that money right now to pay off the debt I owe as quickly as possible. Since my part - time job manager needs an extra person to work on the weekend, especially Sunday shift, I am available, and I suggested I can work on Sunday to make some extra money. Usually I only work on Friday night and Saturday night, but now, I also work on Sunday night and also Monday night to push up my earnings. That really help me to earn some extra money, and I can pay off that bad debt on my credit card as soon as possible. Somehow, we just have to work it harder, and hopefully we can ease ourselves later on.

I don't mind working on weekends if there is a business requirement. But usually I get my offs on weekends so i tend to just sit back and surf filling up surveys and participating on mylot. Good luck.

Good luck to you. I used to be a workaholic too when I had a job. It's a nice feeling to work hard for something especially if in the end all your hard work will be paid.

I don't think that you have to be a workaholic to be working that much. I tend to work that much as well, and it's not really that I love my work or that I am addicted to it, but the simple fact is that I have to work otherwise I wouldn't be able to afford everything that I like to do in my life. For example, I have worked since 11am this morning today even though it was supposed to be my day off. That is twelve hours, which is a lot more than most people work, however I have to do it to pay the bills so having a day off is not an option for me really.

Hi kingparker, I know that you want to clear up your debt but I just want to say don't burn yourself out...I don't know your age and it may not really matter... Just remember "all work and no play makes kingparker a boring person"..you will be debt free but boring...lol..in the mix make sure you have a LIFE...don't mistreat yourself...

Dear, If you badly need to pay off money by working a lot then you have to to what you have to do.When you do pay off the money I do suggest you work 5-6 days a week because sometimes all of us need a break to ourselfs.But if your only working part time then you should have a little time left of the day to have a little "me time".What this means is to do something wih yourself and have some alone time to think about things and enjoy life.Because after all you only have one life.

Lucky for you my friend to have a decent job and you got paid for the extra. But take care also and eat and drink a lot of vitamins because you have to be strong to attend with your job. Lots of people that are job less and very hard to find so your must be thankful for having it. Keep it up

If I could work more I would. Sadly I have kids and no child care and it seems alot of things are ignored when I'm not here. So it's like I work 2 jobs, I only get to leave for a few hrs a week, but it's a nice breather to being trapped in the house and I'm contributing to our household finances. But I commend you for picking up hours available and using that money for your goal of paying off some debt. I was able to do that when I had two jobs as well way back when.

It is great that you have got the chance to earn some extra money. It is hard to work 7 days a week, but when we really need the money it is neccesary to work a lot. I hope that you will be able to pay off your debt as soon as possible. In June, July and August I am also going to work 7 days a week, because I am going to take some extra work in addition to my own work (while the others are going on vacation) I don't look forward to working 7 days a week for 3 months, but I could really use the money at the moment, so I am going to take the extra work that I can get.

Just do not overwork yourself to the point where you stress out and make yourself sick. I remember I had two part-time jobs, took care of my mother-in-law and was a full-time student and I had came close to developing an ulcer. I had made myself so sick that i could not handle everything and ended up being hospitalized.

wow you're real workaholic. Yeah me too. In one week ago i get a job which is I must attend it everyday. From 8.30 am to 8.30 pm. It's so very long time. But still I do, same the reason with you. Because i need that money to help my family economy and for my college (i'm still 18 years old LOL) If you still do that job, don't forget to drink some vitamins. Keep spirit !

You have been having a difficult time for some time.It is the bad debt that give you the power to work harder and harder.I think that you will soon pay off the debt.Obviously,when a man is under pressure,he will work harder and more powerfully.It is most obvious when the end of a term is coming.At that time,students will study very hard so that they can get good grades in the final examinations,which I have ever experienced.In the other hand,I think that a proper amount of pressure may bring a person efficiency and this is just what I am lack of about my work now.Every time I want to do a thing well without pressure,I always find it take me longer than I expected.In that case,I think that I should give myself pressure by some way.But the way always doesn't work,which make me disappointed.

Nice Discussion Friend. Its good to work for seven day a weak. If you want to make extra money then it the most efficient way for earning. If you want to make extra money you have to work hard. As Great people says. But working whole week is too much. You need to get rest at least a day.
