I am in the same exact boat! I work full time and I babysit on the side, squeezing in my field experience this semester feels like it will be impossible- I may have to turn down a really great job opportunity if I can't make my schedule fit around it! I always ask, 'how do people do this??' Especially once it's time to do student teaching! So far I've gotten along by planning out my week over the weekend, I look at how much I'm babysitting and the hours I work (sometimes I have mornings off and work into the evening instead,) and I tell myself when to squeeze homework in. When I have weekends off it's helpful, but sometimes I still have to work weekends and it's extra tough. I let myself be lazy sometimes, because I don't want to fall apart, but it's really been about discipline and focusing on my future. I don't have much free time, but I tell myself it'll be worth it in the end!! My dog is currently in recovery from a double knee surgery, so that has thrown me out of whack-my home is a mess!! Sorry that this turned to my own ranting--I just definitely relate to you, and you should know you're not alone! At work, my students make it worth it for me. I work admin at a private school, and my favorite thing is being a source of comfort for students who have a lot going on-between learning differences or problems at home. I love the kids and the relationship we have! Now that I'm considering a better paying job, a big challenge is possibly leaving the kids I love!
