Getting a job

So, I got my first official job the other day. Im  a cashier at a supermarket. Of course, this isn't my dream job. It's my first job and I needed to start making money and this is a really easy job to handle, so I figured why not? I would have much rather worked at a place like Gamestop, Dick's Sporting Goods, Modells, or places like that. Unfortunately, Gamestop only hires at 16, Dick's hires at 18, and Modell's hires at 16...atleast this is the case for the area that I live in. I get paid 8 bucks an hour, so to start off I dont think thats too bad. Thursday and Friday I was in training and worked a total of 10 hours. On Saturday, which was yesterday, I worked from 10 in the morning to 6 in the evening, so that would be 8 hours. In all over the past 3 days I worked a total of 18 hours. Today, I was supposed to work from 12:30 to 5:00, but I got the time messed up and was 2 hours late. So, I guess Ill get paid for the 2 and a half hours I was there. So, all in all, so far so good. I've been working and i'll get my first paycheck this Friday. I don't work again until Tuesday and it will only be a 4 hour day, so i'll be looking forward to that.

With all the money i'll be making, im hoping to make some new purchases. Since I am only 15 and dont have to worry about paying for any bills, a 160 dollar pay check is a lot to me, so that's why I say "with all the money i'll be making". Im obviously going to put away money for a car, but with the extra cash i'd like to buy some new videogames. If you read my first blog, it tells you about the videogames that I currently own and the library isn't that big. There are many titles I missed out on which i'd really like to play. My first purchase would probably be Ratchet and Clank: Tool's of Destruction. I didn't get into the Ratchet games when I owned a ps2, but I heard that this was a game deffinetly worth getting. Also, with the sequel coming out soon, i'd really like to get into Ratchet's story and play through it. If any of you have an thoughts on the game, please leave a comment and let me know what you thought about it!

So yeah, that's pretty much i'll im going to blog about today. I just wanted to let ya'll know about my first job and how it is going so far. Also thought i'd fill ya in with what im planning on doing with my first paycheck! Im thinking in the future that i'll start a weekly blog, where I recap the week in different sections. For example, i'll have a gaming section where i'll talk just about videogames and entertainment. I'll include a sports section where I talk about my local sports teams and how they're doing. And, any other topics I can come up with i'll include. Im still waiting to get more friends on the site and more feedback on my blog entries. Im not really sure if people are actually reading my blogs, so I dont want to start this whole weekly blog thing up if noone is even reading, haha.

Hope everyone had a good week, talk to you all soon.
