POV of a Consistent University’s Lister
Daniel Asido started working at the age of 20, when he was an incoming 3rd year student. It was the start of pandemic when he applied to work in The Post (The Philippine Online Student Tambayan) and still working in the same company now that he is already 22 and a graduating student.
He’s been a consistent President’s Lister since 2nd semester of school year 2018-2019 until present. Hard work really pays off, and he is hoping to graduate with flying colors.
Daniel decided to work because he wanted to hone his writing skills. Aside from that, of course he also wanted to earn his own money. Improving skills while earning is a wise move, isn’t it?
Passing his school works is kind of easy as it mainly consists of written works, which is in favor to him. However, dealing with mental pressure is taking a toll on him.
Fortunately, his working time is flexible. He can adjust it to prioritize his studies. Aside from that, he can also have “me time” to relax himself and lessen stress. He mainly does it through eating out, exercising, cycling, and hanging out with friends if opportunity allows.
“Having ‘me time’ is important for a working student as we need to detoxify our mind with work and work all the time”Daniel Asido
Time management is Daniel’s biggest challenge as a working student. Having two commitments (with work and school) and performing excellently in academics really takes a lot of time and effort.
Different people have different struggles in life so we should not invalidate someone’s experiences, especially if the expectations were failed to meet.
“It’s hard to say what could encourage people to continue. Committing for the two (working while studying) will surely take a lot of time, but the hard work will be worth it in the end.”Daniel Asido
Perseverance should apply in everyday life and never stop seeking for a new learning.
