I was already gainfully employed at this point, but I could imagine it being rather frustrating to get started at a job when you’re not going to be working that much. After being unemployed for a while the thought of working and getting actual income is pretty exhilarating. Okay, maybe exhilarating is too strong a word, but getting the first check is a lot of fun. A lot of times in TV shows or movies people say stuff like “when I get my next paycheck” and then follow that with some amazing splurge they’re going to go on. But when I get my paychecks I never do any crazy spending which of course is a better habit. But that means that if the situation comes by where I might be doing some extravagant spending that there’s less guilt involved.
