Quitting My Job

Tonight was the 'last straw' sort of deal, and I've decided that as 'lovely' as it is, I'm quitting my second job. I'll still have the coffee shop to put something away in savings and have a bit of cash, but honestly... my parents still support me, I don't NEED this job- what I NEED to do is graduate with decent marks, it's my last year of high school and I do NOT plan on coming back. Basically, my grades are slipping, I have very little time for my own horses, I'm getting Tango to a trainer so I'll need time for that and I'm starting to dread going to work. I posted a thread about one of the horses there and I'm realizing that he is a bit much for me to handle and that I think it'd be best if I quit before somebody (myself) gets hurt. Not to mention I was there today for three and a half hours, getting paid for two, and the work load keeps increasing, without an increase in pay (that isn't even the big issue here, everything above, however, is). My parents think it's best, they say I have plenty of time to work and earn a living, not enough time to 1 ) be a kid 2 ) train for the upcoming show season and 3 ) get good marks, so... yeah! Phew, vent over... It's kinda a relief just getting all that out. Honestly, if I find I need a second job to support my 'horsey habit' I'll apply somewhere with consistent hours and consistent pay that doesn't take up so much of my 'homework time' but for now I'll be content with my six hours a week and go from there.

And yes, I'm giving two weeks notice.

Good for you! It's definitely important to be a kid and do well in school, and if you have wonderful parents who will support you through it, then you should absolutely take full advantage of it. You have your whole life to work, you only have so long to be a kid.

You're very lucky that your parents are so supportive!

Agree that school is much more important now than a job.

Besides, if you hated it, that just makes it that much more stressful.

I agree with Speed Racer. And yay for good parents! Good grades are more important for your adult life than you'll realize as a teenager.
