I've been looking for a first job for months, I finally found one
It is a full time job, it is blue-collar work, pays minimum, albiet Seattle's high minimum wage of $11/hr. I load and unload trucks coming into the Seattle Goodwill, and sort totes of donations according to its goods type - textiles, linens, shoes, toys, etc.
Even then, after several months, Goodwill has given me a chance. I have a good, solid source of income, I can learn how to live on my own.
Sure, it has absolutely nothing to do with my craft of pixel art and my work in indie games. I will keep doing what I can to continue what I do in my spare time, maybe I will find better opportunities more relevant to my crafts later on.
Things I wish to get when I have more spending money in my pocket:
- Proper vision care, I.E. perscription distance glasses
- Better furniture for my bedroom
- A proper nightstand
- A bookshelf
- Wall shelves
- A dresser
- Easier access to health care
- A regular allowance for my sister, because my parents suck
- A short trip to Vancouver BC
- New work boots, for safety's sake
- All the booze! (and weeds)
- All the socials without fear of burning holes in my pocket!
I was told that people will eventually get adjusted to full-time hours and will realize how much can still be done even if one has a solid 1/3 of their life devoted to a full-time job. I will likely become even better at time management over time.
Can't say I was quite emotionally ready for full-time hours, but I will get adjusted to this.
Maybe learn how to make friends from outside of my circles of ponies, or games or dev. So far, things are going good
