The balancing act

Balancing home life, school, dance, work, and church is hectic. I am usually busy and I don’t have a lot of leisure time. My schedule is filled, with Monday and Friday being my only days off. When I am not at school, I am working on Saturdays, going to dance on Tuesdays and Thursdays, going to church on Sundays and Youth group on Wednesdays.

Being busy almost all the time also cuts into my family time. I do not see my family as much as I did before I got a job and started going to church, and I am not really able to hang out with friends because my free time is slim. When I am not working, dancing, or going to church, I try to spend time with my family as much as possible since as soon as the week starts my schedule cuts off my family time.

Even though my schedule is crazy, I find time to hang out with friends and family. I’m working towards getting my driver’s license so that it would be easier to connect all parts of my life. Hopefully one day, I can take a day off.
