Get a job? - May 26th 2010, 11:45 PM

I am thinking of getting a job but I am a little scared. I don't know if it is the right step to take. I get social security and I really don't want to depend on that my whole life and I think getting a job would be a great way to meet people. But I am scared shitless. What if I can't do it? What if I don't like it? What if I don't make enough?

I make 600 on social security now and I barely make it day by day. If I were to make less I would be screwed. But, I know that social security does something where they keep giving you a bit of money for like a year or two to make sure that the job fits. So, if worse came to worse and I really couldn't handle it I am sure I could go back on social security. I really want to do this but am scared.

I get nervous easily because I am always worried about doing things right. But I am a hard worker and once I get the hang of things I do really good. I just idk.

Other problem, meeting new people would be hard as hell. I suck at it. I can do it but for a while I would be scared and shy. But I could do it if I had to. I am good with people.

Lastly, there is really only one place I would like to work and that is a Starbucks by my mom's house. I like the environment in that starbucks and I go in there enough that the people there sort of kind of 'know' me. If I got a job there it would be pretty cool because then I would not be meeting 'new' people so to speak.

IDK. I guess I would kind of like to know what you guys think. Do you think I should give it a shot? Apply for the starbucks I want and if I don't get it take it as a sign that I am not ready for a job? Should I apply at more places? I could apply at one more where a friend of mine works.

IDK. I am going to talk to my dad about this soon as well. I just thought that some of you on here might be a little more objective and understanding seeing as some of you have read my blogs/posts and know what I struggle with.

Also, if I got a job at starbucks would I be able to wear long sleeves or something to cover up my arms? I don't know if anyone works there but that is a big question of mine. I think it would be okay to do. I see some guy that has tattoos wearing 'sleeves' so it would probably be okay but does any one know for sure?

Thanks in advance.

You want to know what I think? I think you really want this job. I see no reason for you not to go for it. If I were you, I'd apply for Starbucks first, because that seems to be the place you'd really like to work at. If you get it, great; if not, you can think whether you'd be happy working somewhere else.

I don't know for sure, but I think you should be able to wear sleeves.

I wish you all the best.

throw yourself into the unknown
with pace & a fury defiant.
