I never had a part-time job when I was in high school. I played a lot of sports and my parents said it was important for me to get good grades. They gave me a $50 allowance every week and I used the money to get all of the things that I wanted. My parents gave me extra money when there were things that I needed like supplies for school or parts for my car. My parents also paid my car payment and my insurance. I spent a lot of time with my friends when I wasn’t at school, studying, or playing sports. During the spring, I played field hockey and softball and during the fall I was on the track and Lacrosse team. I was constantly busy, but I did not mind. The first time I ever applied for a job was after I finished my third year of college. I turned 21 and I wanted to get a job working at a local marijuana dispensary. I had to fill out all of the application by myself and the paperwork was incredibly hard to figure out on my own. I had to call my mom on the phone and video chat with her so I could get help filling out the application for the marijuana dispensary. My mom didn’t seem incredibly surprised that I was going to apply for a job at a marijuana shop. That surprised me a little. I never actually got that job at the marijuana dispensary, but I learned how to fill out a job application that year after applying for more than 30 jobs before I finally got someone to give me a first chance.
