“It requires so so much hey. Your whole being is consumed by those 2 things. But unfortunately, it needs to be done sometimes. The worst is when you get friends and family that don’t understand when you say “I don’t have time”… there is literally no time!!!!”
“Sisi I'm so lucky my family understands, the partner too, friends not so much but my bestie is always there. When it's too much I cry to her, literally coz she understands the struggle too though she hasn't experienced it. And when mom's home I don't do anything I rest.”
“It's doable right and helps to centre you. Gives you a sense of direction in a way.”
“Ya, no look. I tried. Three weeks within my studies and I tapped out. It was too impossible. Entrepreneur, student, mom. I just could not.”
“I did it for 13 years straight, three degrees! I would recommend it!”
“It’s so difficult. You can kiss your social life goodbye for that period.”
