When I was 16 years old, I got my driver’s license and a car.
I started working at a pizza restaurant.
I was delivering pizzas on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. I was making a pretty good amount of money. My mom and dad were worried that I wasn’t going to go to college. They told me that I would never be able to spend my life working as a delivery driver. I knew that they were right, but I really loved being in my car. I love the freedom that you have when you are out in your car delivering. I can listen to any music that I want and I can play the music as loud as I wish. There isn’t any other job where I can listen to music loud and turn down the air conditioner as cold as I want. I still decided to go to college. Deep down I knew that it was the right move for me. It didn’t matter if my parents wanted me to go or not. It was my decision entirely. I spent two years in college and then I got a job working at a recreational and medical marijuana shop in Denver. I worked four nights a week at the Denver marijuana shop and I earned almost $500 in tips. I also earned a good amount of money hourly. Since I was a delivery driver, I had to be paid minimum wage. I was getting 40 hours at work and a minimum wage paycheck. On top of that, I was also earning $500 every 2 weeks from the Denver marijuana dispensary tips. I only lasted three months in school after getting the job.
