A healthy work/life balance, by definition, is a state of equilibrium in which the demands of both a person’s job and personal life are equal. As a Uni student this balance can sometimes feel impossible to achieve.
While I did not get my full first year at ASU, I still got to experience most of it. I want to share some of my stories, experiences, and advice for incoming freshmen.
My decision to go back to school was not made impulsively. I always knew that one day I would go back, but it never seemed to be the right time. I told myself that I was a single working mother and didn't have time to study. I told myself that I was too old, and that ship had passed. Then one day I woke up with different frame of mind. I was bored with factory work. I needed a career that challenged my mind, not a job that challenged my patience. I had to get out of there, and I had to figure out how. Later that day, after a conversation with a coworker, the switch flipped on. It was time. I was going back to school.
If you’ve been thinking about continuing your education but don’t want to enroll in a traditional college or graduate program, know that there are several other options. Not all continuing education has to be formal, but if having a degree or certificate will help you in your work, then that is certainly an option too. The good news is that there are numerous choices for where and how to keep learning.
To all appearances, my obnoxious and superficial opinion on the topic is that this is neither bewildered nor abhorrent. Instead, we'd better blaspheme the "dull" management from the very beginning, which fails to mitigate the foreseeable risks.
In my immediate family I am the only one to have gone to University. It was drummed into me that I had to get a degree to achieve anything in life and when my sister decided not to follow the academic path that I did my parents were very disappointed. Years later I have not one but two degrees and something like £50,000 worth of debt to pay back should I ever start earning a reasonable amount. My sister took college qualifications where funding would now be less available to me if I wanted to change my current career choice and is on the path to a management role.
Attending Sheridan College's Bachelor of Animation program was my dream for as long as I can remember. I can recall being 12 and sitting on my couch watching cartoons and researching the best colleges that offered animation programs in my area. Sheridan has a pristine reputation among the art industry, the "Harvard of Animation", if you will. I don't think at age 12, I quite understood why Sheridan was considered as such, I think I was convinced I would have a Legally Blonde segment where I somehow managed to get into a top-tier school. The reality is for a lot of people, getting into an Animation (or Illustration, even) program is hard.
Guess what? We are still on lock down due to Miss F**king Rona. She is really trying to ruin summer 2020, and all the plans people had including myself. Everyone’s lives having been affected by the pandemic and handling it their own way. People are either boring themselves with the overload of porn, alcohol at 2 pm, or finding a new hobby. But there is the sad realization that some people didn’t have hobbies or interests outside their day to day activities like work or school. Miss Rona is really helping people self-reflect.

One day, one of these lockdown days, you’ll come back to your hostel room in downtown Montreal, switch on the lights, and look down upon the evening lights of Sherbrooke Avenue far below — and you’ll suddenly feel utter loneliness.
I am a 1st year sophomore at Oregon State University in the undergraduate physics program, many people believe I have everything figured out, but I don't. I don't really think anyone knows exactly what they want to do with their lives. We all seem to just be floating on a river directed toward a waterfall and we just have to coast along making the best of our ride until we meet our demise. Our decisions may lead us on different paths but we all end up with the same fate, riding down that dang waterfall. I originally wanted to double major in business and fine arts, but I fell in love with physics my senior year of high school. School is probably stressful for everyone, not only is it a big financial investment, it is a lot of time and effort. It's a huge stressor, you decide to study something that you might end up hating which wastes time and money, It's difficult. I am on the same boat.
