I Have a Job

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 744 People

    I'm 18 and I work as a CNA in a nursing home.

    I love it, but it's such a hard job. It's physically hard and emotionally hard. :( We literally do everything for these people, I love it so much. I've always been the nurturing type... But lifting them, makes me sore for days sometimes. And getting attached to them sucks so...

    I wish I could work for myself someday.

    Something always seems to get in the way of getting everything started. Life, family, etc can really be a drag on dreams.

    I'm debating on whether

    or not I should quit this job I've had for almost a year. The work is easy but I barely get the hours anymore and i can never get any homework done bc I'll get home from work like past 11. I don't know if I can do this.

    I Work At My School's Book...

    I work at my school's bookstore, it's fun for the most part. Plus I get a discount on my books, so that's always a plus. However it can be boring at times, like trying to find something to do besides fold shirts. I do enjoy the company of the people that I work with though.

    I don't really dislike my job.

    It occupies most of my time. But it makes me feel a little lonely. Although I wouldn't do anything anyway if I didn't have it.

    A Paradox Of Opinion

    "Sales associate" is a glorified term for my profession. It's the same as saying a fast-food employee is a "chef" or the man who works at the car dealership who has a computer to tell which part to replace is a "mechanic". In all actuality, I'm what you could call a "shock...
