So I got fired yesterday

Guess that answers the question of what to do about my job.

I got fired for using the work computer for non-work related purposes. I would do school work during my shift when there was down time. My boss had told us not to browse the web and stuff, because people would use it for whatever and get viruses. I never hid the fact that I did school work though so I thought that was okay, but it appears there was a misunderstanding there.

I'm not devastated. I've been in worse postitions and made it through so I'll figure it out. I'm just trying to decide what to do now. I'm done with school in like two months, at which point I was going to try and find a full time job. So do I try and find another part time job now for two months, which was insanely difficult for me to do last time? Or should I just stay unemployed and start looking for full time jobs in a month or so for when I'm out of school in December, which was my original plan anyway?


Thankfully I'm lucky enough to be in a position where I can get away with not working for a couple of months, as my mom has a handle on all of the bills and whatnot. And while she has some extra money to spare and has no problem giving me money for food or even just going out, I really hate the idea of asking my mom for money for things I want and don't need. I know I'm insanely privileged in the fact that I CAN ask her, I just feel awful and weird doing so. I'm 23, I don't want to ask my mom for money to go drinking. That just feels ridiculous and immature and awful.

But will I get lucky enough to find a night/weekend job within 2 or so weeks? Because if it takes me two months or more, it's basically pointless. It took me almost a year to find my last job.

Shit. I'm in between a rock and a hard place right now.
