I was in the same boat as you just last semester, and I’m only in undergrad. I tried to do everything and be everything all while doing my senior project and holding down two jobs as well as three separate offices for different clubs.

In retrospect, it is so not worth the sacrifice of your personal health and sanity. I was an absolute wreck by the end of my experience, and I was so burnt out that by the time Christmas break came around I was just a zombie. Christmas time is my favorite time of year and I could barely enjoy it because I was so numb from working 18 hour days all semester.

In my opinion, I think you should take a well-deserved break. You worked hard to do all of this by yourself, and it’s really no one’s business to say that you can’t. Take it while you can and enjoy it.

Not selfish at all. You need some time for you. I’m a teacher and I don’t know what I’d do without my weekends (of course, I end up working for a good part of every weekend). One option you could think about is private tutoring. I do this a few days after school during the week. Not a huge time commitment, good money, and I set my own hours.
