I finished reading a financial know-how book by Suze Orman and did my math on my current financial situation. So apparently even though with my weekly allowances and once in a while duit minyak from my aunts, I still won't be able to buy a camera before I graduate. My free-lancing job actually costs me money and depletes about 40% of my salary. It adds a couple of pages in my resume and portfolio but it is not sufficient for me to buy a camera.
And since reducing entertainment and miscellaneous expenditure (which I've been doing for 2 months) is not paying off so well, I've been thinking.
Maybe I should work.
No. Not as a designer or 3D modeler but as a cashier, salesman or promoter. A roommate told me Carrefour and other department stores hire part-timers with schedule rearranging priviledges. The salary is RM5 per hour and the average working hour is 6 hours. So RM30 a day. And if I work during special holidays, they'll pay three times the normal wedge. Which ultimately means I have to work for a hudred days to acquire RM3000.
I can live with that.
Why, if I work as a cashier I'll be the best damn cashier in the whole wide world. People will be inspired by my smiles and thank-you-come-again they'll smile back and come again. They'll give me their businesscards and ask me to work for them. They'll even give me a free blow... blowhorn so I can tell them thank-you-come-again from afar. I might even learn how to say it like Apu (you know... the Simpsons Apu..)
Let's give it a try, shall we
Thank You Come Again
