I recently had a quick conversation with a close friend who is now staying in the USA. He is just waiting for college to start so I asked him what he was doing there while waiting. He said he already has a job. I was stunned for a bit, then asked, "A job?" Then he explained that he is going to work full-time in Starbucks as a barista. I personally think that's amazing since he's being productive at the moment, but then I wondered how he would focus on his studies if he's working full-time. He quickly answered that once school starts, he'll only work part-time. He immediately explained that a lot of college students in the USA are working part-time too. (I'm not really familiar with the lifestyle of college students there)
Being curious, I asked him how much he earns while working in Starbucks. I fell off my seat when he said $9.50 an hour! Full-time employees work 40 hours a week. The first thing that came to my mind is that he could immediately buy an iPhone (with a 2 year contract in AT&T) in less than a week!!! I was so jealous of him because (as I said in my previous post) I need to earn money to buy myself a new phone! I bet he will be really rich after a few months. I'll keep in touch with him to get more updates about his job and his life there in the USA.
Being desperate that I am, I'm trying to earn money myself(which is why there are ads all over my blog, lol). But as of today, I still have no luck. 0 clicks!
Anyone want to share some experiences related to this? :D feel free to comment.
