Well my life has changed but really that’s because I was at school/6th form college/uni before becoming an engineer.
Comparing university life and working life – I actually have more free time because once I’m home on a evening the time is my own, there’s no coursework to do. So I enjoy weekends and evenings more, and now I have more money so there is more freedom there too.
I had the same bills to pay at university that I have now, so I worked part time whilst studying. I did quite enjoy that job but I’m glad I get do something I really love on a daily basis now that my hobby is my job!
