Weird to think that there are is just a little over a week left of school, and really how many days are actually full days. And of those short days how many consist of actual school work. So when you think about it, there truly is hardly any school left.
Kind of sad. But only kind of. Because no school means summer, and I have been counting down the days until summer, and I would bet money that everyone else has too.
Anyways, I’m not sad that I will no longer be a freshman, because really who wants to be a freshman. And the fact that this time next year I will be well on my way to being a junior…well that is just crazy. Hopefully these next couple of years don’t go by too slowly.
What I was trying to get to, though to be fair I wasn’t trying that hard, was summer plans and more importantly, summer jobs.
Now being a freshman, I wasn’t really planning on getting a job this summer. I figured, nah, I’m too young, what’s the point? Well ladies and gentlemen, the point is that you get paid ten dollars an hour to work with a bunch of cool people, make new connections and, to be honest, have fun.
At least, that’s how I’m feeling now…I’m pretty sure that in a couple weeks I will be way past the honeymood period, but I’m going to enjoy this while it lasts. Besides, it’s a really cool feeling to have other people trust you with responsibilities and treat you as an adult. It is just so…so professional. And I like that.
Now I may be absolutely insane and y’all are in complete shock that I can even say that I enjoy work, but hey, isn’t that what you’re supposed to do? Find a job you love? Maybe not everyone is lucky enough to have a job they actually look forward too, but I think that is a good thing to strive for.
But either way, this summer I’m getting paid, and that’s rewarding all in itself…I highly recommend it.
