In my opinion, money isn't everything. What are your feelings towards money? To me it's alot of things, but not everything. I learned money wasn't everything the hard way last year. It was beat into me by seven other people. I also learn alot of other lessons as well. Like, never wear a work uniform in an area where they're looking to attack anyone who has money, and don't ever try to hold onto anything that can be replace because it's not worth losing your life over it. All of these three lessons I learned in one day in only a couple of hours. They will never leave my memory because of the injuries I endured and the situation I was in at the time.

I was working at a dead end job restaurant for a year and a couple of months now. Getting paid a very low salary because this restaurant was company owned and it was a low-class restaurant portraying itself as a very expensive restaurant.

Macaroni Grill of Balston Commons Mall in Arlington, VA was a good experience some times, but most of the time it was a horrible place to work. The emotional stress the employees and the employer went through everyday of work really built up alot of tension. It made the employees hate working there even more, but we all hung on and stayed because we needed the money. One of the bosses hated working on Tuesdays, so she would keep everyone there later than they usual clock out, unfortunately I worked Tuesdays, and I lived in Maryland. I caught the metro (both bus and train) to work and home everyday I worked.

It took me 45 minutes to get home from work on the train and even more to wait for the bus...
