Balance

Career, Classes, Coursework, Fall '08 No Comments »

The beauty of a community college is that you can take classes without having to move to an expensive new dorm room or quitting your job. However, balancing work and school can be a lot like juggling. Personally my schedule is crazy. I have three part time jobs (because none of them can afford to hire me full time) plus classes and clubs. I sometimes feel like I live-eat-breathe school and work. My schedule consists of: MWF – go to job 1 in the morning, grab lunch and eat while driving to job 2, then go to job 3, eat dinner at 10pm, do homework, go to sleep. Tues/Thurs – go to

job 1, go to class, eat, next class, homework and club stuff, then back to job 1. I work weekends too. Fortunately, one of my jobs is at MCC and allows me to do school work during the slow periods. That’s been a lifesaver for me more than once.

Thankfully my husband is very understanding of my workload. Finding the balance between work, school and marriage has been difficult for me but very rewarding. I’ll be getting my AA this semester and so far I’ve managed to keep up my GPA. I’ll be starting next semester at USF. I’m really excited about moving on to a University but I’m sad that I’ll be leaving here. I love MCC!

Helping people is thrilling.

MCC Venice is having a thrilling event next Saturday at 2pm(Oct. 25th), sponsored by the Pop Culture club.  A large group of students are gathering together, dressed as zombies, to participate in the worldwide event “Thrill the World.”  The goal is to help break the current world record of 1,722 people dancing to “Thriller” at the same time.  Proceeds from the event will go to the Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center in Sarasota, which helps domestic violence and rape victims.

For more information, check out www.thrilltheworld.com. and http://www.sparcc.net/

 This is going to be so fun!  This is a great example of how club events are both fun and help people at the same time.  SPARCC is a great cause.  It was an organization similar to SPARCC that helped my mom and I through tough times when we were victims of domestic violence. 

I encourage everyone to go out and participate in dance fest.  It’s going to be a blast!

Update: The Thrill the World event was a blast!
