She Works Hard for the Money

Cue Donna Summer, because she works hard for it, Honey, so you better treat her right.

This summer, I made a Summer Bucket List.  The first item on the list?  Make a lot of money. 

I love university, but my bank account takes quite the hit from it, especially since I was unemployed.  I did have a job in the first semester as a paid note taker, but as it only made me $125 during the whole semester, I probably would have made more money mugging people. 

I had a job in high school, but I was only working three hours a week through the year, and under thirty hours a week in the summer.  Don’t get me wrong, I loved my job (especially in the summer when all it was was making crafts), but it wasn’t a real money maker.

This summer, however, is going to be different.

This summer, I work in a warehouse.  It’s a forty hour work week.  With a shift premium.  And opportunities for overtime.  AND I LOVE IT.

I got my first paycheck today, and let’s just say I’ve nearly paid off my recent trip to Cuba.  So long as I don’t spend too frivolously, it looks like I’m going to be able to cross off the first item on my bucket list!
