Something that changed me and the way I see things is when I got a job. It was one of the worst experiences ever. It was one of those jobs, where the only way you get paid is if you sell something. So they had me basically going from door to door, trying to sell newspapers. They had me walking through Gretna in the scorching hot sun. They literally had people who slammed doors in my face, made up serious lies, and claim they had no money. The only sell I made was the first door I went to , they brought the newspaper for a entire year. I had the longest walks ever, I had to walk up both sides of the street and I walked up and down at least 25 streets. I worked from 2:00 - 9:30 for a whole week. This really changed the way I viewed my life to because how im gone take care of myself without a JOB?
