That’s right, for the first time in about 4 years I have an actual hourly job! Not my own business, freelance work, consulting, or writing, no; a regular, hourly job. It’s retail but guess what? I am happy for it! I liked retail and I have always wanted to work for this company so I am excited. Best of all, I will soon have absolutely nothing to do with SSI (benefits)! I better knock on wood haha!
Finally I will be earning a steady income again, no more collecting a check! I will work for my money! Finally I can save money and not worry about going over some stupid limit! I can work on my own endeavors (such as photography and blogging) and not worry about my income levels growing too high. I have been waiting for this day for so long. I will buy a car in a couple weeks and then I will save save save! After that it’s all about the next step; getting a place of my own!
I am starting off at 30 hours a week but it seems like they wanted me working full time so once I get into the motion of it I am sure I can get a full 40. $8.75 an hour, not too bad considering I have been out of work for a while and was planning on starting at minimum wage. After a year I can get benefits so by time I am 26 and dropped from my Dad’s insurance I should be 100% self sufficient. Between that, writing, and photography, I will finally be making some real money!
I am definitely happy, excited, just, idk! Great! So begins another chapter of my life!
