I am 17 years old, I can’t find a job. I don’t need one, but I do need to prove I can handle one. How can I when I can’t even get one in the first place? Why does everything have to be 18+? I am only one year a way, why can’t anyone make an exception for someone as dedicated as me?
I write all the time, but its about pointless things that nobody will see or care about. I don’t have a job, and I only go to school four hours a day. Nobody will hire me because I am only 17, and everyone that would is filled up. I don’t even want that much pay, just some extra spending money to get my by on my senior year of high school. I would have even settled for selling article pieces or even babysitting.
I would love to have a writing job, something I could do on-line at my own time. I could write as much as I am asked, any amount at all if I am just offered the opportunity. I sit on here writing and just like my user-name I am wasting my time. My step mother gets on to me for not doing anything, with no money and no job there is nothing I can do.
I know there are so many teenagers like me, that are feeling the way I feel. I just wish someone could change that, I mean create a magazine, on-line magazine, that hires teenagers. Or just me, either works. Something needs to happen because the world is give and take, but I am really tired of not being able to give.
I know this was one of the shortest articles I have ever written but I had to get it off my chest. I find myself saying ever night, “God, someone just help me, so I can help someone else.” I want to get a job, so I can have money to use on the people that have helped me like my mother, my father, my friends and etc. I don’t know what else to do.
I just have to wait it out and see if anyone can create a miracle for me. Thanks for reading everyone.
