…Just kidding. But I want to. Whenever my mom got angry at my laziness when I was younger, she’d say I’d end up mowing lawns. After doing it, I’m really wondering, is it that bad?
I might have mentioned recently that I need a engineering-related summer job to help me in the future. Well, something happened that changed my mind. I mowed my neigbors’ lawn and got paid $45 for an hour and a half of work. $45! That’s $30 an hour!!!
So I started thinking…with university coming up and having to make important career choices, why don’t I mow lawns over the summer instead? I mean, the weather will be mostly nice, and I can put up with the heat and mosquitoes. If I do 6 hours a day every day over the summer, that’s roughly $9000 over two months. That’s pretty decent right? Pays for a semester’s worth of tuition. And I develop some job skills like responsibility and communication and…let’s be real it can’t be hard to bs something good with regards to what I learned. So why not?
Because it’s not a “respectable” job. I’ll try to mow lawns over the summer, but I also need a “real” job. I’m a hypocrite. I want to do something simple as a replacement for what everyone expects, but I can’t do it. Society looks down on that kind of job. I guess I can see why, too. Just feels bad to realize that I’m going to need to work had every day FOR THE REST OF MY LIKE OH GOD WHAT HAPPENED TO MY CHILDHOOD
Yeah, still trying to come to terms with high school ending.
