I’ve considered myself a hard worker for a while now
I remember getting up at 4:30 AM to practice two hours of basketball before school started because after school I would have 2-hours of rehearsal for musical theatre and I’d be too tired to play basketball then.
I wanted to balance both basketball and theatre as well as maintain top grades.
At Villanova, I’ve constantly taken a full-credit load because I want to learn as much as possible given the fixed costs of my semester tuition.
But I have not necessarily been seeing the results of my ‘hard work’
Which makes me come to two conclusions:
- I am either unlucky / the universe is unfair, or:
- I need to work harder
Option 1 I can’t control.
Option 2 I can, which means it’s time to amp it up and keep going. I haven’t burned out yet, I’m just getting started.
