Blogtember: Getting a job

Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn.

SO yesterdays blogtember failed, I didn't really understand what I was writing about so I was like "Screw it, I'll post a picture of my nails instead ;)"

I think my life took a pretty big change in the right direction when I got my first weekend job. Till then I was a typical teenager, lazing round on the weekends with very little money to actually do anything fun. Having been to an all girl school since the age of 11, the only males I had really had any contact with for an age had been my dad and brother. 

That all changed however, when a 16 year old me managed to get a weekend temping job in a shop over Christmas which changed into a permanent job. Lo and behold I am still working there 5 years down the line although have since gained A-Levels, a degree and a boyfriend (who I actually met at work!)

I wouldn't say life changed in direction quickly but suddenly I became 'rich' (back then a tenner was a BIG deal), I began becoming confident around the male gender and I became more confident in general. 

And of course I met my wonderful boyfriend of 3 years. So yep, getting that job back in the day was a pretty big drop in the ocean of my life!

Do you remember your first job? Do you think it changed you too?

  1. I know exactly what you mean with this post. Little things like getting a job really can change your life. I met my boyfriend at work and we've been together for nearly two years now! x
