This post goes out to all of the teens out there who are frustrated with their situation.
You know what I’m talking about. You get to class late because your alarm somehow magically turned off by itself. You were hungry so you stopped at McDonalds for a McGriddle and then your friend Tina called so you just had to tell her what happened last night. When you stroll into class (breathing hard and wiping fake sweat off your forehead to make it look like you tried your hardest to get there on time), your teacher gives you a look like he’s going to punish you by making you scrape the boogers off from under the desks after class.
You sit bored all day listening to some crap about Winston Churchill and the commies *yawn* and then you can’t stop laughing at your friend because she caught your yawn and is now spreading it around class! Your teacher gives you another look, so you decide you can handle sitting still until school’s out just so you don’t have to go through another stupid detention again.
Besides, if you were stuck at school you’d miss track practice for the third time. You can’t let down your pole vaulting buddies can you?
After a nice swasstastic (definition: a fantastic episode of swass -sweaty ass-) workout, you have only 25 minutes before you have to be at work! You ask yourself how you’re possibly going to go home, shower, and drive all the way over to Burger King in time. But somewhere between your daydream of eating the perfect donut, and making fun of a biker wearing an Italian racing jersey, you’re in your BK uniform already taking orders for the dinner rush! You work hard for awhile knowing that if you don’t pay attention to the time it will go by faster. You decide to check your cellphone watch, but you play that game where you guess how much time has gone by before you look. What?! It’s only been an hour? I could have sworn it was like 2 1/2 hours at least!
You suffer through another agonizing 4 hours before you can finally say peace out for the night. You feel releived knowing that at least you made about $50 and you’d be able to go home and relax. Then it hits you like a swift butterfly kick in the balls. You have to do homework! Dangit, ugghhh….. That’s the last thing you want to do. So you watch family guy during the last precious few minutes of time before you feel guilty enough to go to sleep. Because you know that you’re going to have to be able to wake up and do it all over again!
Ok, time to get serious. We have all been there. We either had awesome parents who gave us all the allowance we wanted during middle school so we could buy an endless supply of gum and new clothes, or we were left eating pencil shavings to freshen our breath because we were too shy to ask for a piece of gum from someone else.
We either had parents who bought us a car and gave us spending money during high school, or we had to get a horrible part-time job so we could learn “discipline” and “responsibility”, all while we enjoyed our extra money more because we worked so hard for it.
When it comes down to it most teens choose to work part-time sacrificing the extra time they have for homework, hanging out with friends, or more extra-curricular activities after school. Teens love extra money, but it’s not likely you’ll be getting it from your parents. You have to work.
But you don’t have to work the traditional part-time job. There are other options available to you. Here’s a hint: they’re online. Yup, there are tons of online jobs for teens out there if you know where and what to look for. Luckily for you, you’re at the right place. Onlinejobsforstudents.com provides you with online job opportunities made for students. Freelance translation, tutoring, computer gigs, writing gigs, starting a blog or website, being a virtual assistant, creating a comedy youtube channel, and more are just a portion of what’s out there, and featured on this site. I guarantee you can find something that fits your personality and your needs.
If you hate being stuck at a pointless, underpaying, and annoying job while going to school as much as I do, then you’ll find this site very useful. Check it out and tell your friends!
