I work EVERY weekend (notice how I stress that) and I hate it, really. The job I work is easy and I even have time to study....but I miss being with my family on the weekends. The other people I work with are quick to remind me that they "don't" work weekends so if there is something special going on....I just miss it.
Today, however, I'm ill therefore there will be no working for me but this is the 1st time I've been off on a weekend for awhile and I'll spend it sick and studying for my 10 tests (and no, I'm not joking either) next week.
If you can figure out a way to not work while in nursing school
, I would 100% recommend it. If you can't, then the weekend thing might work out for you....just remember that it takes away a huge chunk of your week and time to yourself (and family) and it might end up causing more stress.
