Got a second job!!
Mon, 06-16-2003 - 10:07am
I work full-time as a secretary at a University. I don't make a lot of money but the benefits are great, the University pays for half of my tuition. Well I have been looking for a second job for a long time now because I got myself mixed up with those stupid payday loan places and now am living paycheck to paycheck. Anyway, I applied for a part-time desk clerk position at a new hotel here a few months ago. They called and I interviewed with them on Thursday. I got a call this weekend telling me that training starts on Tuesday! I guess that means I got the job! I am so excited. It only starts out at $6 an hour and I will only be able to work weekends but I figure every little bit will help me get out of debt. The manager also said that my pay could increase depending on my performance. I just wanted to share my good news with everyone. It seems like there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

That's great! You sound SO much better than you have in previous posts. It's going to be hard for a while, but the satisfaction of seeing your debt go down will push you to do it. I've worked a second job for a year now, and I just got told yesterday that my p/t position has been eliminated, so I haven't decided yet if I'm going to get another. I'm getting married in 2 1/2 weeks, so I think I may just want to focus on that for a while!

Again, congrats, and keep up the good work!
