I figured getting a job for the summer was as easy as pulling up to your closest Safeway or Target and filling out that form on the machine. But yeah.

Must you present temptation?

Completely normal to feel nervous before starting your first job, right? Though I'll welcome the monotonous and mundane routine of the workplace with open arms, I still think I won't be able to juggle it along effectually with university classes going on. You can tell I'm not used to working.

For some reason I can do my job in only three hours from the eight hours I have to do it in, so the other 5 hours I can just browse PC and chat with people.

It's a good time to get stuff done as well as there are much fewer distractions.

Haha, efficient on your part or misconceived time allotment by the manager?
For the love of me, I don't think I'd be able to control the cynic in me when I'm dealing with acrid and arrogant customers.

There's always paid internships I suppose.
Harder to attain but definitely rewarding.

I'd like to think efficiency, but I might just be flattering myself there. You'd have to ask my manager how well he thinks I do . xD

You've got a certain amount of security with an intern-ship too.

My first job in the industry was over the summer of my first year of Uni as a Production Assistant for a company that did animated commercials (my job dealt with applying to film festivals, scanning, compositing, colouring animation, and dealing with people/ the phone.) I was super nervous at first but easily got into it.
Second place in the industry was my internship at Disney working on Split Second DLC and prototype anims for a game that was in development. I learned a lot and I was so happy with that experience. It was a big move.

:33 Now I'm working at Sega as an animator (suuuper nervous when I started, too.. aren't we all?) and so happy that one of the games I am working on will get announced soon :333 So I will finally be able to spazz and talk about what I am actually working on <3333

Man I love working in Games.

I'm trying to get into medicine as a major(cause medicine is the best major ever) but I'm totally interested in developing my own game, even though I have absolutely no experience with anything computer related haha :( I really hope there's a little bit of free time and the "busy doctor" stuff was totally exaggerated, but I know that's not true.

Mine is awesome and I am happy with my pay. It is fun being an IT Technician for a University, because you don't do the same thing every day; varies a hell of a lot.

I'd love a job like that tbh. My tasks get repetitive.

That is just my personal experience of it; doesn't mean you won't like it. There are many good parts about it, but it just wasn't for me.

I suggest to avoid CLOTHING for retail. However, beauty supplies and junk is simple.

Sounds like you've played your cards right and judging from your jovial tone, honestly, I actually envy you. Kudos.

Wouldn't it be inexplicably convenient to hold that post within your own university? I'm thinking of working for the library if they let me at mine.

Hope your luck strikes me the same way.
Are the majority of technically issues you face solved by a simple system restart?

Not really. It depends on the problem though. Printer problems aren't sorted by turning them off and on normally.
