A few years ago, I created a tumblr account, today I created a blog. This is for the small victories in life and the small failures.

1 Broke Girl; 2 jobs

Awhile back I was having a really tough time finding a job. But I put on my adult panties and went around to every place that I knew was hiring. As a result, I was instantly hired at a restaurant.

Unfortunately, the hours didn’t get me enough money for rent and food much less paying student loans. So I continued the job search for a second job.

This time I was hired by a motel to be a front desk person with a guaranteed 32 hours a week.

And that is the story of how I became a slave to the American system and exhaustion. It is also the reason behind the lack of posts.

To you assholes

who didn’t believe in me.

When I started working at the restaurant, a lot of people said I wouldn’t make it because they don’t think I’m a people person.

A lot of people thought I was doing poorly because they came in during the busy times.

But instead of getting my usual $15-$20 tips, I’ve been getting $30-$40. Which is awesome. Especially since it was super busy. And instead of each table giving me the usual $2-$3 tip. I get $4+. Today, I got a $10.00 tip.

Therefore I’m winning.

Suck it.
