    Angry Things just keep getting worse-Now Better =)

    So I told you all a few weeks ago I wrecked my car. Well we finally got someone to look at it this week, and the damage is worth more than my car. So its being totalled =( And so Im understandably upset and the first thing my mom says is maybe you should get a real job, like thats really what I needed to hear right now. I just started a tutoring job last week, but its only 2 days a week an hour each day for ten bucks. Its not much but I can do it easily and its not like Im on my feet and getting sick from it. The only other job I've had so far was working at McDonalds and it was the worst experience. I never got breaks, I was on my feet for 8 hours at a time without getting to sit down or get a drink. I hated it. I got sick and went into a flare. Im only 18 and thats my only work experience so I know I wont be able to find a good job that would be much different than that. I really need a job where Im not on my feet as much. But there is nothing like that for someone my age. I just get really angry because my mom knows all this but throws comments out there like that all the time and she knows it frustrates me. And Im not exactly in the mood to talk about that right now knowing I officially dont have a car. Sorry for my rant Im just sooo frustrated right now.

    8 hours without a break, that isn't legal is it? My daughter works at a gift shop for 2 days a week, and picks up 4 tutoring jobs for 5 hours spread out during the week while she is studying. Money gets tight at times, but she picks up extra shifts at the gift shop during holiday time. Are you able to pick up any more tutoring jobs while studying? Get your Mum to spread the word out. Oh and my daughter also totalled her car (she is also 18) and now my husband is slowly working through the wreckers to try and fix it up. We have another car we were going to sell but she is using it at the moment, she really needs it to go to her tutoring jobs. (which she doesn't do during the holidays because the kids don't want to do school work on holidays when their friends are on holidays)

    (((HUGS)))) sorry to hear about your car. how about a receptionist position part time? you're not on your feet, most don't require you to run around. that's how i got started in admin work when i was younger. if you're up to it, that is. look in the papers, look online, heck you could even cold call - you never know. if you have a good phone voice & etiquette, they will usually train you to do the rest. suggestion if you do decide to look into it - stay away from hair salons, it's never just a sit down & it is VERY hectic.

    Thanks you guys. I hope that things do get better. I keep telling myself that they will but nothing has turned around yet. Today was so much better than yesterday at least. It was my last day of school before break so it was pretty stress free. We had a secret santa exchange in one of my classes and my teacher got me and she knitted me a hat! It really made my day I dont think anyone has made me something before, especially not something so nice! And I dont even know her that well, so I thought it was really nice of her to spend her time making it for me because she knows I always have a hat on, though Im not sure if she knows why. It just really made my day especially after the bad day I had yesterday.

    Oh I am so happy for you! I know you have had some rough times lately but it is great when out of the blue something good happens. It seems to wipe out a bit of the negative of the previous days! Glad you had a negative wipe out day!
