Senior balances busy work schedule with school

As busy as some people get, they still make time for the ones they care about. 

For someone who is working two jobs, is in leadership for school and does sports in the spring, Senior JD Linney already has a lot of priorities.

“My daily schedule, I get up at 6:15 a.m. and I take a shower. For breakfast I’ll have a cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese. Then I’ll leave for school at about seven in the morning. I get to school around 7:10 a.m. From there I am at school until 3:15 p.m. or whenever I leave, and, depending on the day, I’m off immediately to work at Sub City. If it’s a Taco Johns day, I’ll go home for about an hour then leave at 4:30 p.m. to get to Taco Johns on time. I never start until 5 o’clock there. If I have homework, I’ll do it as soon as I get home until I go into work. Whenever I get home from Taco Johns until 10:30ish, I’m doing homework. Then I’ll go to bed.”

Depending on the day, homework for Linney can get rigorous.

“It’s weird because this week I’ve had no homework, so when I’m at home I can chill out, but some weeks I get homework every day. I have three classes that aren’t college classes, but the other four are.”

Thankfully, Linney doesn’t have to work at two jobs in one day. He alternates between them throughout the week.

“Between both jobs, the people there are surprisingly similar, but at Sub City, I feel that the work is more evenly distributed, whereas at Taco Johns I feel like I’m pulling the weight of other people, but overall it seems pretty even.”

During the spring, Linney is in tennis. After the first week of spring break is when his first practice is for tennis.

“The manager at Sub City said they’re pretty flexible with their hours, so there shouldn’t be too much interference with working and tennis.”

Linney doesn’t plan on having two jobs while tennis is in season, but either way, Linney’s schedule is still packed.
