3rd grade:
1st time i earned money was when i convinced my grandmother Aysha (Allah yer7amha) that i will sweep her yard for 1 dinar. She tried to convince me that it was dusty outside and that the yard would get dirty as soon as i was done, but i insisted!

Note: Grandad (Allah yer7uma) would give me & my 2 younger cousins KD 5 a day to buy toys and candy from Nuzha coop, so it was about the earning rather than the taking!

7th grade:
I baby sat my nephew, poor thing he has a phobia now because apparently i put him ina suit case and pushed him around. I got 3 KD/hr for minding him :p

8th grade:
I would spend the earlier part of summers with my dad in the UK, and the rest of my family would join later. I got bored one day, and offered to wash his car for 5 pounds. It set a precedent and it was an excellent source for art supplies (i still have many of them!).

Sophmore year during uni:
Worked as an office assistant at a psychologists office (v. interesting & depressing). I got paid 150 KD for the summer.

Senior yr:
Worked at an economic consultancy, translating their weekly economic report. Was fun. Payment was a letter of recommendation for my post grad degree.

Post was inspired by The Don's
