it may seem like this is how your life will be for the rest of your life but it won't. you are going to school to better yourself, so $20/hr will NOT be all you'll ever make, or working for crumbs. This is just the first step on your way up. I know it's hard, especially with a baby, but use this mantra when the going gets tough. It's always worked for me. I got it from the first Star Wars movie, "stay on target, stay on target!" You've set a goal for yourself. so stay on target and don't let the job get to you. it'll look good on your resume when you quit, so learn as much as you can and do the best that you can. (P.S. those "warnings" are just a scare tactic to motivate you).
