I recently have gotten a part time job, and it's kind of a big deal because it's my very first job ever. I was debating over weather or not I should do this blog post, but I figured that a lot of you are around my age and may be looking into getting a part time job yourself. At the end of the day if at least one person benefits from this then I'm happy.
Anyway, I am still currently in my secondary schooling years and so I was worried about weather or not I could balance school with work. I haven't started many shifts, but I chose to only work two days a week. It is proving to not be as fun as I anticipated it to be, but hey it's a lot better than a lot of the jobs out there. I never knew how hard it was to work a till, so I have a lot of respect for those who have to do things like that everyday. I thought I would create a little pro's and con's list of getting a job whilst still in school.
-You no longer have to ask other people for money e.g. parents ext.
-You could save up for a big purchase like a car or save up for Uni
- Meet new people
-You may have to sacrifice going out with your friends because of work
-You have to think more carefully about managing your time
-Your grades might be affected but only if you don't manage your time properly.
I'm sorry that I haven't posted in a while and also that this post is a little short. But I thought I would update you on a piece of my life that is very exciting and new, as I have never experienced anything like it. Do you currently have anything exciting or new happening in your life at the moment, or are you just experiencing some mundane moments?
