I got a job at a restaurant!!! It starts in a month, and I have to prepare and train there too. I’m sorta nervous but inspired. It’s a new restaurant and I am going to add to the menu. The owner also offered a free haircut and makeover so I look the best. She’s my dad’s hairdresser and he put in a good word for me! I’m excited! I’ll be making gluten free bread and coming up with a recipe for the restaurant. It’s Vietnamese so I’ll be like a chef’s assistant part time 20hrs a week then move on up.
I’m also going to ask about a Behavior Tech position at the place I go to for medication, but one of their inpatient hospitals or step-down facilities. I want to work with kids mostly. My goal is to become an art therapist for all ages. But mostly teaching and art therapy inspire me as a career. I want to inspire young people to do well and also prevent them from drugs and falling into the traps a lot of people I know young and old have. I don’t want to do the substance abuse counseling stuff yet, but I will eventually and get a Masters.
I have one year left of college and I’m paying off the loan this year $1,000. I pay $100 a month right now towards collections for my college bill that my parents couldnt pay. I have to file income taxes, no one ever told me I needed to. I might get to stay on my dad’s insurance for a few more years as a dependent which makes me nervous and I don’t know all the rules about.
I probably won’t be his dependent once I can afford insurance and rent in a couple years. I also started saving $20 of my allowance each time.
So hopefully I’ll have two new jobs this year!!! But the first one is a definite, she hired me on and I’m soooo relieved. I needed a job ASAP.
