Students should really just take a break during the school holidays

By bloopwhatisthis

It appears that kids these days are always trying to suss out part-time jobs whilst waiting for the release of exam results or during their year end holidays. I find this trend particularly worrying.

As a student, his/her academics takes top priority, even more so in Singapore where the education system is so unforgivingly competitive. I've witnessed more than a handful getting drawn into the hustle culture where they habitually overwork themselves during the regular school term/semester to the point of near exhaustion, to the point where it becomes a "lifestyle". So why still grind away instead of properly resting up when it's time to do so (assuming you or your family are not in any dire financial need)?

The hustle mentality is turning you into a cog in the wheel. We humans are not hard wired for such extreme levels of throughput and productivity. You will eventually fizzle out if you aren't careful. For every success story, bear in mind there's a vast invisible majority who ran on fumes before they subsequently crashed and burned big time.

So pretty please, go take that well-deserved break and pursue something you GENUINELY enjoy. You'll come back better than ever before, ready to tackle the next obstacle that lies ahead.
