    please can someone help

    So i recently got a job in a newsagents working 10 hours a week and its quite good because it fits in around college and i get Sundays off and it's easy work.

    The downside to this is that it gets sooooooo boring and I mean soo boring. I ask for more jobs and theres nothing to do. I have been offered a housekeeping interview and If I get it I won't know what to do.

    The woman at the newsagents knows my family and gave me the job without an interview at all and she's been really nice. I just think the housekeeping job will keep me occupied, possibly better pay and more hours.

    What's the dilemma? You haven't got the housekeeping job yet, so why not wait and see what that's like I suppose. You could see how they compare and quit as you see fit.

    There is nothing wrong with a boring job if you can get it. The worst case scenario is that you use the 'boring' parts to recharge your batteries.

    A busy housekeeping job on the other hand can potentially tire you out so that you feel drained and unable to study effectively, as college is your main focus.
