Life as a trainee is indeed tough. Rents are rising almost everywhere around the globe, money is short and hobbies aren’t exactly cheap either. With the quite good income I get from my work I can stay afloat well enough to stay alive and I think that’s what matters.
On top of that I receive as much support as possible from my family, which also really helps.
I do know that some of my co-students at vocational school are struggling quite hard. Some of them receive almost no money and have to find part time jobs during the weekends. I can’t imagine how difficult that must be. Having a weekend is really important for me, without it I’m totally burned out and unmotivated. To those I can just say: Hang in there, it can only be better! J
