I’ve just accepted a job that pays $11 an hour.

These are reasons why you should not do what I just did:
Money has been a big motivator for me in the past few weeks in a way that they haven’t been before, driving me to search for and accept jobs, even if they seem tiring.
This job, along with my other one, will require me to work thirteen hours Monday to Friday. I will wake up at 6 everyday, only to come home at 11, if I am lucky. That leaves me less than six hours of sleep everyday, less than the recommended amount for someone my age. Inevitably, I will be stressed, tired, and lacking in sleep.
Working too much will leave me rarely enough time for me to do what I enjoy and to see others, which was the original plan this summer. Because I will embark on my new journey this coming September, there is no time to waste. Without a time to release negative energy into a creative outlet, I may go kaput. TBA.
I didn’t even think. I never stopped to pray, consider my consequences on my mental, physical, and emotional, nor did I think about those around me and the relationships that would suffer from such a demanding schedule.

Do what you love and don’t make money the motivator.
