What was it like for you when you were in college? Did you ever think, “Hey, I should start working and saving while I’m still studying at college?” It may sound like such a brilliant idea in that moment of your life but only time will tell if it was a bright idea or not.

Here are 11 things you would relate to if you worked part-time while in college/university

1. You are always rushing to get somewhere on time.

2. You miss out on more events than you think

Class in the morning, work in the evening, there is zero time for anything.
