Should I work?

Ok, two questions. 1- Last semester I worked at my college for about 10 hours a week. This semester I only go to college 2 days a week (from 8am-3pm) and have 4 hours of free time a week (12-2) I need to eat lunch during that time and it would be nice to have a break to hang out with my friends after 3 classes, or study. I don’t know if I should go back to that job or just forget about a campus job this semester. By the way, it’s minimum wage. 2- I don’t know if I should get a job while I’m at home (5 days a week). I don’t really NEED any money since I live with my parents this semester. I don’t drive yet and I’ve only had one other job (the campus job). Also, when I applied for the campus job they never asked for my working papers.. (I’m 17). I don’t know if those take long to get or not. I’m trying to raise my GPA up and I have been using the time I have to study. However I DO enjoy having money :D I might want to save up for a car once I get that license. Advice?

Answer #1

It appears you have to decide what is best and make that the priority: 1) more study time to raise GPA 2) having some spending money or 3) work to save up for that car - only you can determine which is No. 1…Good luck !!

Answer #2

Right now, if you don’t NEED the money then I don’t see a point in trying hard for a job right now. Its good that you are focusing on school, and I think you should keep it that way. If you got a job off campus you may not focus on school as much and thats not good because education is the #1 priorty right now.

Answer #3


Answer #4
