What I thought I had done

In seminary I worked several “menial” jobs to make ends meet. I was a bell hop, security guard, and wore a few other hats. I did all this while being a full time student and while we had our first babies.  I had one semester in which I took nineteen hours of classes. I wanted to make sure I was done in three years.

So I would tell anyone that I knew what it was like to make a living working at menial jobs.

Word to the wise:

When you are a student who thinks you have an entire career ahead of you, you know nothing about making a living working at menial jobs.


Different expectations. Different time frame. You were in an entirely different world than anyone you know who actually makes a living working menial jobs.
