I am Selin. I am a student and a shop assistant. My life is not easy. It is difficult. But my friends don’t understand it.
Like all students, I go to school on weekdays, that is, from Monday to Friday. School starts early in the morning. It finishes at 4 in the afternoon. After school, all my friends go home. (www.bebekce.gen.tr) But I go to work. I have a part time job at a clothes shop. I work until 7 pm. Then I go home. Naturally, I am very tiredwhen I get home. I have dinner. I do homework. Then I go to bed.
Weekends are not easierfor me. Both on Saturday and Sunday, I work at the shop from 8 am to 6 pm. So, I am tired at the weekends, too.
I like school. I am a good student. I like working as a shop assistant, too. It is an enjoyable job. But being a student and a shop assistant at the same time is very tiring. I am a student because I want to be a doctor in the future. I am working because I needmoney. But my friends say I work because I love money. This makes me sad because it is not true. They don’t understand me.
