Oh I am extremely fortunate but my job has it downsides as well. I work until Midnight 6 days a week (I only get 1 day per week off) and then I'm back up waaaaay too early in the morning with my kids who think that if it might possibly be light outside, they should be AWAKE! So by 10pm at night, I am struggling to stay awake 2 more hours, especially on the 4 days a week I have a riding lesson. During the school year I can grab a nap sometimes but during the summer... haha!

I'm a high school student, mostly. I do work a few days a week at the farm, helping out with summer camp, birthday parties, and exercising horses. I don't do too much during the school year, but I work like a dog once summer comes around!

I try to find work where ever I can during the school months. Odd jobs, mostly. Babysitting. I'm currently trying to secure a job at the vet clinic... Don't know how that's working out for me. :/

I work at KFC and I also help out at my instructor's stable doing odd stable hand jobs and being the end or lead horse on trail rides. I know its not really much, but I'm still in high school and money is money. I hope one day to own a successful equestrian centre (for dressage) and to help kids who never got the chance to ride and give them an opportunity to.

When I'm not in university I work for the provincial government Tourism department.
I also work as a maid for Aaron, my boyfriend, and a disciplinarian for Jake, our puppy, neither of which pay very well at all.
My job is pretty cool though, get to meet loads of people from around the world!
