I started my first job when I was 17... as a cashier at the Western Canadian chain London Drugs. I worked as a cashier for one year, and then moved into the cosmetic department where I worked for one more year. I got paid crappy wages, but I stayed there longer than any other job I've ever had for some unknown reason (fear of change? lol).. AND I met my very best friend Courtney while working there. I think that first job really changed me as a person and helped me become more outgoing and less anxious in social situations.
