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

I’m not sure, I’ve thought you were a female but really I have no clue! lol.

Lol I haven’t intended to keep it a secret as I am pretty sure I have commented on other blogs revealing the fact but now it has become interesting so no, not just yet 😛
Wow sounds like I may be some crazy sexless alien by the sounds of the above!
lol, you should make a “gender reveal” post 😀
Haha! An Unveiling Event! Hmm perhaps, although it may make me sound quite big-headed if I feel the revelation of my gender requires an actual post lol

Haha okay then perhaps a gender reveal post is what shall happen! But not so soon else the fun will be spoiled 😛
Sounds good! 🙂

Nope. You are definitely feline.

Hmm am I…?
Woaah carrot! I’m glad you didn’t say carrot else I would have had to recycle the how do you know carrots are good for your eyes joke that I last used a long 11 or so years ago after reading it on a packet of sweets, yes crazy
Brilliant!!! And I’m intrigued to know of this joke….
Well. You’re a kitten now so eveyrthing is all hunky-dory. Oh I’m so evil *cackle*
Don’t worry, I shan’t call you a kitten no more.
Oh trust me it cannot really be classified as a joke anymore 😛 Fine I’ll just say it,

Very poetic right? 😛
I’ll just continue being the kind soul I am and let you take it. Humility is such a nice trait you see 😛
OOOOH I feel heartless, soulless with no GUT! I ought to feel remorse *apologises; fetches water from the tap, to offer*
Since my bottle of water is finished, I shall accept your peace offering, especially as ir befits my humble self.
