I just got a new job at Universal Studios. I am 20 years old and love my job there. This is where the problem comes in. At this moment I make 9 bucks an hour and a 1/2 away by car or 2 hours by metro. I can’t afford anything closer. I tried driving, for 2 days and it costs almost 20 dollars a DAY in gas alone. No way, to much money. So I started taking the bus. I don’t know how long I can do this though. I am burnt out already.
I leave at 5:30 am every morning.
Get to work at 8am.
Start work at 9am.
Work until 6 pm.
Take metro home.
Home at 7 or 8pm.
This schedule leaves no time for anything. I eat once a day (dinner). I get home do laundry for work blah blah blah. Surf the net for half hour/ or work out a bit. Go to sleep.
This sucks, and I want to quit even though I love my job. They already have me in for a small promotion and it won’t take me long to move up again. But is it really worth it?
What do you think? Should I quit my job and find one thats close to home? Or suck it up? any other ideas?
