So tomorrow is Sunday which means a day of relaxation and peace. Oh wait, that is what it would have meant two years ago before I started working. Recently, every Sunday has coincided with my mind turning to getting another job which of course is difficult when you are a student.
To be honest, the main thing I have a problem with at my current workplace is simply the low pay. This would be okay if I had just started but a year has passed without the promised annual review and now another year approaches. As mentioned before, the powers that be have thought of the idea that all teachers at the tuition centre must take an IGCSE exam if they want to be considered for a pay rise. This news was also delivered with the statement that low results would face a cut in pay or the sack. Well it would have to be the sack since they cannot legally cut most of the tutors’ wages any further.
Anyway, so searching for a job if you are a student is difficult because firstly, there simply are not many available and secondly, the ones that are advertised are usually not ones you really want. The funny thing is ones which pay more are only things like tuition (does not pay more for me however!) and babysitting. Other jobs only offer the minimum wage as well as awkward hours.
I was searching for part-time marketing jobs or things like article writing but of course those positions were just for ‘interns’ and unpaid. This means I shall have to once again trundle along on the bus tomorrow morning and trundle back eleven hours later.
In the meantime, today has been rather interesting as I made my brother give me a haircut and he seemed to do a good job (money saved!)
Also, my dad did something really funny today. He went shopping and bought himself a mug which lovingly stated: Love You Dad!
If that is not enough to cheer you up then I suggest watching or rewatching the movie About Time. It is sweet but so so funny in a really classy way. I have never watched a movie twice but this one I have flicked through again and again quite a few times.
Also, a fellow blogger wrongly assumed my gender today. If you would be so kind as to say whether you think I’m a male or female in the comments, it would be much appreciated and will also give me a few laughs!
Until next time,
A Worried Student
