A few reasons. I'd rather go to College part time than full time. Gives me an opportunity to study more the things that I like such as C++. Another thing, there is a recession and I would like to work through it. Also, I think I'll be more productive and study more if I have this job because it involves a lot of sitting around with nothing to do but read. It's not like that all the time, but during a 12 hr shift in the middle of the night, it gets quiet.
