Finished With Finals (Already!)May 11, 2009
Yay! I am done with finals for an entire year! I just took my last final, and since I will be at Disney next semester, I won’t have to take another final until NEXT MAY! That’s a very exciting prospect.
So now that the semester is officially done, I am just trying to figure out how I’m going to pass the next three months. For the next week, I’m going to continue working at my regular job part-time, and picking up extra hours at the school bookstore doing text book buyback. Then, I will be able to go to full-time, something student workers are not really supposed to be able to do.
Student workers are only allowed to get 1000 hours per calendar year. Under normal circumstances, this works out to abot 20 hours per week. But since I won’t be here to work between August and January, I can work 40 hours per week over the summer, and still not go over the 1000 hour limit. I really love my job, so this will be a great way to spend the summer. And it feels really great to have a definite plan for the next few months, because I wasn’t sure that they would be able to find enough hours for me to be in the office full-time. But I guess it’s going to work out after all!
Right now, I’m off to do text book buyback for the first time. It’s going to be a great way to pick up some extra cash over the next week, and I’m excited to do something new for a while. Manual labor is fun when you don’t have to do it very often! 🙂 Actually, I’m not exactly sure what this is going to entail: I am assuming that we will be sorting and boxing up the books, but I really won’t know until I go in in a little while. But I’m sure I’ll be back complaining to you guys soon about how much my muscles hurt, and how much I’m ready for the week to be over. lol. I’m a wimp! 🙂
