So I started my second summer job on the first day of June. I am an office assistant “intern” at a realtor’s office. I mainly do data entry and other tasks that are medial, but that he doesn’t want to do. I work 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, so it isn’t a bad gig.
I was hoping that I could make enough at the new job, so I wouldn’t have to host in the evenings anymore, but my parents won’t allow me to quit working at the restaurant, because they don’t want to close that door.
There was also a lady at the realtor’s office who was going to have me do her filing and computer stuff on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Literally my last week has been wake up at 7 a.m., be at the realtor’s office at 9 a.m., leave at 4 p.m., run home and change clothes, get to the restaurant at 5:30 p.m., leave at 11 p.m., then go to sleep. The next day I would wake up and do it all over again.
I know that doesn’t sound too bad and I am getting paid for the work that I do, but I am so exhausted. I am one of those people who needs a good amount of sleep to be a sane person during the day and with this schedule I am just so cranky and I wouldn’t even want to be around myself.
I understand where my parents are coming from by not allowing me to quit one of my jobs, so today I told the lady at the office that I wouldn’t be able to work for her. I apologized, but it was just too much. I need at least a few days to be able to sleep in, eat, read, watch t.v…. do the things that summer is supposed to be used for.
So anyway, that is basically why you haven’t heard from me much in the last week or so. Because I am walking zombie.
