I have really amazing news. I just got a text message from my bank, saying my salary has been deposited in my account.
Getting paid is good. But I don't understand why you're so excited. It happens every month.
Well, I've been working for a few years. In fact, I worked all through university,
but I only had part-time jobs then. So this is the first time I've ever been paid for a month of full-time work.
Well, then you must feel great. I mean, it's been two decades, but I can still remember when I got my first real salary.
I was happy for days. And I felt like it was a small fortune, even though it wasn't.
Yeah, I've never earned so much money before. And there are so many things I'd like to do with it.
What did you do with your first pay?
I bought a new suit for work and took my parents to a nice restaurant to celebrate. Maybe you could do the same.
I have enough professional clothes. And my parents are across the country. So seeing them is impossible.
But some people from the office are members of a gym. I want to join.
And my university classmates are arranging a trip to visit our old campus, and I'd love to go with them, but I can't afford both.
If I were you. I join the gym because it's a good way to stay healthy, and it might help you build a stronger relationship with your colleagues.
And good relationships are key to a successful career.
Hm. You're right. Thanks for the advice. I'm taking it.
