Abstract/Description: Juggling school work, a job, and a social life can be difficult, especially to a young Seminole. With majors in Music and Creative Writing, as well as a job at Cracker Barrel, a young woman describes her sophomore year through letters to her grandmother and best friend. These letters, while describing essentially the same situation, are completely different to both recipients. To her grandmother, the young woman stays positive, slightly sugar-coating any bad situation. There's a silver lining, one has only to find it. Letters to the best friend can be described as melodramatic, the complete opposite of the letters to Grandma. Things are terrible. I hate my job. I never have time to do anything. Interspersed with profiles of customers, and lists of lessons learned at Cracker Barrel, this thesis gives an interesting and realistic view of what it means to be a working student.
