Why is this normal?

Er I’ve been working 9-5 everyday. I had today off and it’s been amazing and all I have really done is eat and sleep!

like seriously what kind of life is it working 9-5 I really do not want it!

I really don’t mind the job at all. I’ve been doing it all summer and I’ve got quite into it but it’s to much customer service for my liking so it’s nothing I could consider as a career doing admissions. Also a lot of the team have gone on holiday so there’s a lot more work for me so I don’t tend to be bored like I have been doing.

Its just the hours. How do people with a 9-5, full time, permanent job have a live? Like seriously?! I get up at 7 travel to work spend 8 hours there, get home, eat and that’s I’m ready for bed! And then you just have to do it all over again?! That is not a life just waiting for the weekend to what, sleep?

When do you exercise, see friends, drink and still get enough sleep?! This should not be a normal thing!

I honestly think I could absolutely adore my job and not what to do this 9-5 shit every week. There has got to be a better way!

Why I get paid to do nothing

Good question. But I think I know the answer.

My jobs where I do nothing are ones that I get from the university right. They hire a lot of students, always offering students jobs with really good pay as well can I add, and none are very demanding.

But thing, all these jobs are only advertised to students, only we can do them which is great.

But, where are they getting all this money to just waste on just paying students like me to sit at a desk and answer a phone, who can be funding this..

Me, I am funding this.

Really I am paying for my own time, just not yet.

They are using my student loan to pay me!

I may not be paying myself now but when I pay back my loan, I am paying back the money that the university paid me for my job?

mind blown right.

So really i think this is fantastic but really is it?

How to stay dry in sweaty work environment

as I have moaned about on serval occasions, my Sunday cafe job, today was the dreaded day!

I hate it in there because I work in a kitchen, and it is already so hot in there because obviously it’s a kitchen, but also it’s a garden centre, so it’s like a green house, green house effect it’s boiling. So that plus a kitchen plus it’s being hot anyway, it literally is hell there when it’s hot, never mind the actually job.

But having worked there two years nearly I have discovered so tips to stay cool. Your boss may hate it, but you need to stay cool is my excuse 😉

1- dress cool. Nothing that’s sticks, I don’t wear leggings, trousers, tight skirts no no no. I wear them baggy black jogging bottom type bottoms. They remind me a bit of Aladdin trousers. With a vest to get all the air round. But never ever ever, wear jeans! Ever! You will literally be baking yourself.

2- nothing on the head. I am supposed to wear a hat but in the weather it is just impossible. So I put my hair in two braids so I say that it is “suitable tied back” no arguements.

3- water water water. I have invested in one of the flasks that you can put hot or cold water in. They can be pricey but they are worth it promise. Keeps your water ice cold. And continue to drink it. I must have drank 3 litres at work today, but I have gone days were I haven’t and I’ve gone home with a massive headache so do it!

4- keep going outside. You need the fresh air, just breathing hot air is not only bad for you but gross.

5- cold water. Keep putting your hand in cold water, it makes you feel cool everywhere I promise

6- do not exhaust yourself. Running round like a mad man isn’t going to help you at all. Take it steady, if they moan, say do you want me to faint? Hopefully the answer is no.

Stay cool guys 😘
