    It's a Miracle!

    So I've been working (my first job ever)

    since mid January of this year. I am food prep, which I don't really mind. The only thing I hate is cutting and shredding 24 (1 case) lettuce heads a day. Sometimes 48 lettuce heads a day. Nobody helps me. About a week later, I was working the fryers. It's okay when it's not...

    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 work at J.C. Penney

    and get $7.98 an hour. The job itself isn't so bad however management isn't very nice and don't treat employees very well. My favorite part is talking to and meeting all different kinds of people...now i just need more money.

    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...

    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.
