I'm 27 years old and make $40,000 a year with no degree. The only reason I make this much is because I work 2 jobs and I'm working 10 hour days with one day off. I feel old and that I have no more excitement for life. I feel like I'm living to work. I understand that work is needed to make wealth, but I live in a 1 bedroom apartment with a cat and am very unhappy. I feel like life is going nowhere. I'm pursuing my degree but then I'm thinking about the student loans afterwards and it just depresses me. I take better care of my cat than I do myself. I hardly cook because by the time I get home, I just want to go to bed. I feel like my body is slowing down and I recently started losing weight. I'm already a stick figure. I can't afford to drop a job. Do you ever feel like you're just working to live? How do you make it easier? I know I should balance work and play, but I just can't afford to slow down.
