I changed my mind.

A few posts ago I mentioned I had turned down the job offer that I had received. I think I’m going to change my mind with the offer. I received another call last night from the Hiring Manager saying that he was sending me a link for an application to fill out for the background check, and subsequently starting the job on June 4th.

I sat around yesterday thinking and asking my boyfriend, mom and best friend Amy what I should do. My mom thinks I should stay put since I’m at a comfortable time with work and school. Mark mentioned that I’m enjoying school and that I should stick with it, because I don’t really need the money, it’s just that I want it. I can’t remember what Amy said about it.

But I’m stuck in a hard place. Do I remain working part time only able to have enough money to pay for little things, and having to save up for the larger luxuries (school included, since tuition for the fall semester is going to be around $900 before books), or do I go back to work full time making $34,000 a year (which can increase with added commission)?

This is going to be a tough one because I like working a few days a week, and having some days to myself. But then the other part of me wants to work a lot so I can bring in the money so I can get my own place, and other luxuries I want without having to wait to obtain it. Oh what to do…


  1. Yes, the money will be nice right now but coming from my standpoint education is better. I’d say to go ahead and get college out of your way while you can. You really want to get into computers (as do I) and almost all jobs want a degree before they’ll even look at your resume so get college out of your way now. Sure you may be broke for the next couple of years but you’ll be swimming in cash once you land that amazing job at Microsoft. (heh-heh)

  2. Tough question – although I don’t think anyone else can tell you what to do. You could always give the “big” job a go and decide after a year or so if that is what you want – but I am not an expert – I am self-employed and I work constantly – but it’s like merged with my private life so I don’t think it’s too bad. I hope you find your way!

  3. The theme of the cam portal is Glamor, and I couldn’t really care less what you think about my make up.

    Please keep your obnoxious comments to yourself.

    By the way, I don’t wear foundation.

  4. I don’t know how to answer. If it were me, I’d go with the staying in school and making more money when I graduate. Good luck. I hope things work out.

  5. Pam: Yeah, I think it’s mainly the money that’s really urging me to go ahead and go with this. I wanted to be able to work and go to school fulltime in hopes that the salary would be able to pay for the $1,000+ tuition I’d have each semester.

    I think I’m just going to stick with what I have right now even though it’s just so tempting to go with. School wins.. for now! 😛

  6. Good luck deciding whether to take the job or not. I don’t know what to tell you either. On one hand, the money would help you out but on the other you said you were good with school and in a comfortable place. I hope things work out for you though.
