i've hated all of my other jobs, and considering i've only been working for 5 years, there's a lot. but i am aware that it's possible to actually like a job.

I love my job as a teacher.
I still hope to trade it in for a writing novels.

they failed another health inspection.

two within 1o days.


the health inspector's supervisor's are supposed to be coming and checking out the joint, if they miss even one violation (i heard) everyone is getting fired and the place shut down.


I can't wait.
haha.

i occasionally sell ice cream for my dad.. when i need money or he needs someone to stand in the ice cream car..
the hours are good (5 hours/day, 1 pm to 6pm), the pay is fairly okay, but it is hard work and customers are a bitch, really doesn't anyone know how to place orders?
also, standing up for 5 hours in a 40x50 cm space is hell, really not easy on your back.
and at the end of a summer day you usually go home with blisters on your hand. no fun.
i usually spend rest of the day lying on the couch or my bed when i get back, because my back is killing me by then..

i have to work tomorrow and the day after, whoopti, not really looking forward to it.

i also babysit, babysitting is nice. okay: pay is very sucky, but at least you don't really have to do anything. and i babysit for rich people, so around festive holidays like christmas or just when they are in a good mood, they pay more. they also pay more when they make me come in in the morning or when they feel bad for making me come for just 1 and a half hour. they once paid me 20 euro for 1 and a half hour.

Just got my first job @ college. Academic Computing.

Basically helping faculty upload stuff to a website (lol)

So I'm excited at actually getting paid.

I work in a small grocery-type store that only sells frozen food, in bulk. The pay is good - $16.58/hour - but it sucks that I work by myself for the vast majority of the time... it gets lonely.

Right now it's pissing me off though, because for the past 3 years I've worked there while also going to uni, I've worked every saturday by myself except for maybe 3 or 4 when I've gone on holiday. Saturdays suck... we have so many customers and I'm run off my feet. Last month I told my boss I wanted to work tuesdays instead of saturdays because my uni timetable would fit around it, so he said he'd hire someone to work saturdays. Now I'm stuck working tuesdays AND saturdays because he's so damn picky that he hasn't found a "suitable" person to hire yet. Argh.

Bouncers at the club that I work are really nice. We have good banter and things and like to get stoned together.
Today, during my shift, they put some form of legal high into my coffee. I got half way through it before they let on.
I am still buzzing. Don't really even know what it was.
Can't tell if I'm pissed off or amused...

They made up for it by giving me cake.
Now I've been up for 20 hours and can't sleep. Hmm.

We just had a small hourish long lock-in with beer and weed and things. It ended up in conversations about fisting and 3 of us, as a team, getting to level 100 on this iphone game where you move wooden blocks. Was pretty good.

I would like a job that pays me. In the meantime, I'm broke, but very happy. So in the end I still win, right?
