A Juggling Act – Balancing the Big Three

                For a high school student, juggling more than one thing can be difficult. However, for one student, it is even more so. Jordan Torrez has a difficult life, trying to handle after-school sports, theatre productions and even a part time job where he is a manager.

                Jordan is currently involved in Grease. “Jordan has been involved in every theatre production possible since he was a freshman. He is the only Senior to have done this.” Mr. Vander Linden has high praise for the guy who has held a main lead for 5 of the 8 productions he has been a part of.

                He is also one of the managers at the local Sonic. He works long hours, managing those who are older than him, as well as some his own age. He says that being a manager forces him to be more mature and have a better work ethic outside of work.  Being a part of Grease, he says that he didn’t get near the work hours he wanted, but he worked any open night and weekend he could.

                As well as being a lead in Grease, and a manager at Sonic, he also plays basketball. Mr. Barrett says, “He has a tremendous work ethic. He always gives 100% and I, for one, know that he is a busy dude. Being able to juggle so many things pays off eventually and it sets a good example.” Mr. Barrett also says that he is responsible and he has a bright future.

               Jordan comments on his basketball saying, “I was inhibited on the court because I had less sleep. I couldn’t give 100% to the basketball because I still had to work and I was a part of Grease.”

                Overall, it is nearly impossible to keep up with everything a student wants to do and still be able to do the normal stuff: eat, homework, socialize. However, Jordan does what it takes to support himself and the passions he has found in school - a juggling act mastered

Next up on the to do list is his laundry. Since he gets home so late, it’s his responsibility to get any laundry done for the next day. (PHOTO: Carson Beyer)

Needing a little relaxing time, Jordan watches YouTube. Just like any student, he needs a bit of time to unwind before finishing up his responsibilities.                    (PHOTO: Carson Beyer)

Lastly, Jordan completes any homework due the next day. Although he could procrastinate, he knows there a lot of other time the next day to finish assignments. (PHOTO: Carson Beyer)
