I am having the hardest time juggling work/education/practice. I have no time to myself at the end of my days. Sometimes I barely squeeze in time to practice because I find myself needing to rest.
I really want to be top of my game but I am finding myself slowly dwindling away into hopelessness due to my schedule that leaves me no time to embellish my talents the way I want to. Should I resign from my job? I do not intend to be a custodian for the rest of my life. It is killing my motivation.
Here'a a reality check since you asked--
I hear you and I don't expect you to be ecstatic about a "temporary" job. BUT sorry, join the rest of us adults. Don't throw away an income unless:
a. you have another job that is not as physical and pays the same or better.
b. you have a girl friend willing to support you,
c. you are a trust fund baby, or can live on your parent's couch for the foreseeable future.
One of those options I hope is better to you than others..
