English Translation:

Wow! It's a month already I am working in a pub. In fact, I don't really like to work in a pub, because it is very tiring. However the money given by the pub is really good, therefore it is better for me to work hard a little bit.

Today, I used my first parttime salary to treat my friends. All three of my good friends are coming. However, I only treat them with a can of Coke. It is very few, indeed, but I don't want to use all of my money.

We talked about our working experience. I feel that my working experience is the hardest, so I am starting first. My working hours are every Wednesday and Saturday, from 8 to 12 o'clock. It sounds quite relaxed, and it only takes 8 hours of work in total every week. However, during this time, the guests are really many. Plus, I don't have any experience, so I always get flustered.

My boss is also very stingy. I once broke the cup, he not only deducted my money but also yelled at me. Ah... so tiring. No wonder, my roommate said that every time I went back from work to the dormitory, I fell asleep as soon as I lay down.

I thought that my high school life has been very hard already, and now I know, this IS hard work.
