Earning paychecks not always boring

Confucius once said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Although most people would associate this idea with career decisions, many Woodmen have sought out part-time jobs that they enjoy. They are not necessarily flipping burgers or folding shirts at the mall when they report to work in the evenings or on the weekends.
“I work at my dance studio, and I assist in classes with little kids. The only requirements are that you have to compete and at least be in 8th grade. Other than that, any girl can be an assistant,” junior Mia Zaborowsky said. “I was inspired to start working there because most all girls assist once they are in 8th grade.”
Senior Isaac Simpson has incorporated his love for animals into his part-time job at Pet Suites.
“I wasn’t expecting how hectic it can be when it’s a very busy day,” Simpson said.  “I enjoy being able to be around and work with dogs and cats every day I come into work.”
Simpson enjoys the variety.
“There is not just one thing I am doing every day; every single day it’s different. I mean this Christmas I dressed up as Santa, and we were taking pictures with the dogs. It was honestly so much fun,” Simpson said.
Although some jobs can be tedious, senior Chloe Loughmiller passes the time by being active. She works at Crew Car Wash.
“We have to run to customers, and we spray down bugs with a water prep gun. Sometimes, we have to fix some things in the tunnel,” Loughmiller said. “I like to be more active because changing the atmosphere makes time go by quicker.”
