Getting a paycheck
…are one of those little things that remind me life is good.
El dia de paga
…son una de esas pequeñas cosas que me hacen recordar lo buena que es la vida.
The 15 and 3o (31) of every month have become my favorite days every since I started working for a paycheck. Two years ago, my sophomore year in college, I began my first job ever! I know this is unusual for Americans but it is quite the opposite in Mexico; most people don’t hold a steady job until college or after.
I had no idea how fantastic it feels to have my own money. My own; not my parent’s, not family’s, not my boyfriend’s. It’s a great feeling, knowing that I can spend MY money on whatever I want and having no one to answer to.
Sadly, paychecks are not limitless and they tend to run out sooner than expected. This is why I love getting a new paycheck, it renews my feeling of independence.
