I'm mentally and physically drained... from work and school today. 3 hours of work felt like 6 hours of work, I worked really hard today; un-boxed computers, sorted projectors and their accessories onto a pallet (IT guy @ my school district) so I had to constantly be on the move. Just like a battery, you run out of juice and you got to recharge. I really want to sleep but I got a damn presentation I have to finish for English class. I know it's due on Thursday, but I like to make sure it's good before I turn it in. I'm also supposed to have a 3 page research paper, but I only have 2 papers so far... I think I'm just going to leave it the way it is, too lazy, too tired, not worth it, at least I'm turning it in :P So, how about you guys, have any of you ever had [or still do have] a job while in school?

    I didn't even know what that meant until I googled it this morning... close but I'm more like INFP. (I took a quiz)

    What is your MBTI type? You sound like a ISTP.

    On A days I work 1 1/2 hours, and on B days I work 3 hours. (My tech teacher is awesome and lets me leave class since they don't do anything 4th hour anyway lol) Usually it's pretty easy, but there are days like today where there is a lot to do but yeah not very often. Since I work for the school district as an intern they will definitely let me take some days off if I need it... and in fact I probably should do that tomorrow so that way I can work on my presentation. But yeah thanks for the advice and everything I think I should probably take tomorrow off. Having this job is actually important because it shows that I have experience in the IT field and everything because this is an internship with the school, also I got my A+ Certification last year and it makes me look smart. :D

    My first job was after I finished school. Having a job during school is kind of frowned upon here, so kids can concentrate on studying. It isn't illegal but the low pay really discourages kids going for jobs.

    I didn't because I didn't think I could do proper work while in school. I thought work was for when people left school. (16+, school leavers - jobs seemed to be for them). I remember helping my sister with a paper round in my early teens when in school. This was time consuming with amount of houses there was. I did it on a day when I didn't have much work to hand in or after I finished my homework. After a while my sister packed it in and I didn't want to do it all myself being that it was time consuming and too much walking around for me. How many hours and days do you work? I think that if it was just a Saturday job then it's ok, but is it an easy job? If it's days that conflict with school days like in the evenings lets say, I guess you could try to negotiate the hours with your employer so you have more time to do your school work. Hopefully they'll be understanding. Are the work hours short or long?
