My part-time job is starting to get to me. I work in the book repairs section of the library. My initial job was putting the call number stickers on the books, but now I'm actually scanning the books and printing out the call numbers themselves--the latter is much more menial and boring. I first took this job because I hoped I'd learn about repairing books eventually. However, after seeing a couple of newer co-workers moving on to such work, I have little hope I'll be doing anything interesting soon. My boss doesn't dislike me, but she doesn't especially like me either. I can't tell if she thinks I'm stupid, if she's threatened by me, or if she simply doesn't like the way I handle books. :unsure: The pay isn't that great, either (I'm getting exactly 35 cents above my state's minimum wage). However, the hours are extremely flexible, the library is on-campus, and the work requires little social interaction, all of which are unlikely at better jobs. Any advice from those of you who didn't fall asleep reading this? I'm also wondering if I should just drop out of school (which would mean quitting my job anyway). I don't care anymore about my classes or my grades, and I'm not getting much more out of the lectures than what I could get out of a good book or website. I don't like school in general, though, and I never have. The total apathy is relatively new--it started after a run-in with a bad teacher in 11th grade. I reported her because she was so amazingly inept--she didn't get fired or anything, but I don't regret doing it. I've been lazy about classes ever since. Should I take this upcoming semester off? I don't look forward to joining the workforce, but I hate wasting my parent's money and getting myself deeper into debt if I can't make myself even care. (For example, I should be studying for a final exam I have in two hours or for one I have tomorrow morning--both of which I'm completely unprepared for--but I'm here, writing this.) I'm feeling out-of-whack today, but if you can decipher my horrid writing, any thoughts on either situation would be greatly appreciated.
