Looking For A Summer Job As Told By GIFs

Summer jobs are getting tougher to find.

Looking For A Summer Job As Told By GIFs

It's that time of year again! Finals are over and summer is upon us, but you're broke and need a job because you need to start building that resume.

1. The Romance Phase

At this point, you're months away from needing a summer job and everything is great! You've written out a whole plan this summer about where you'll work and the cool spots you're going to grab lunch on your breaks. Have you filled out any applications? Nah...it's only March; you've got time!

2. The Denial Phase

You filled out 10 applications to places in town that offer sub-par employee discounts! Do you have any interviews lined up? Sort of -- you'll have one once they see your awesome resume and cover letter. It's April so it's fine right?

3. The Panic Phase

You just got your first call from a potential employer and they say they filled the position, but they'll keep your application on file. Now it's May, and you're screwed.

4. The Anger Phase

You're back at home with your parents and haven't heard anything from any employer in a few days. How dare they not hire you on the spot! You graduated high school in four years and bathe daily. What more could an employer want from a person?

5. The Acceptance Phase

You should've filled out applications in March so you could've interviewed over spring break. Maybe someone needs a babysitter a few days a week? Zaxby's is hiring too. You sort of messed this one up.

6. The Redemption Phase

Someone decided to hire you! Bring out the dancing lobsters!

And anything else that dances for that matter!

So at the end of the day, don't be lazy. Fill out your applications early for summer jobs because everyone wants one when they come home and there's only so many part time jobs. Most importantly, believe in yourself and good things will happen. Good luck!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
