A few months ago my best friend Mario asked me to meet him and his boyfriend Ramon in Vietnam this Summer, even if it was just for a few days. I have a regular job, so I save up for every trip, but I also want to go to South Africa this year.
My husband said I would only be able to do one of the trips, so I needed to choose between Vietnam and South Africa.
Well, I really want to do both trips, so I told him I'll get a second job to pay for the other trip. He laughed at me, since I already have a full time job and probably won't have time for anything extra.
Someone at work suggested that I get a job for Mother's day at the flower shop where she works. I went for an interview and got hired right on the spot!
I was so excited and scared all at the same time! I haven't had a second job in a very long time! But it turned out fine. All the people were very helpful and even though I felt like I was asking too many questions during the first week, I think I was good by the second week.
In the 8 days I worked there I worked a lot of hours (I think close to 80).
Now I have extra money to travel more! Anything is possible! Vietnam, South Africa or anywhere in the world.
I never thought I would ever work in a flower shop, but now I have extra money to travel more.
