What It's Like To Have A Summer Job In College

What It's Like To Have A Summer Job In College
College Green Light

I have a summer job. Again. I've had a regular job since I was 17 (12 if you count babysitting and nannying during the summer). I feel like every year I'm stuck working and taking summer classes while my Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat feeds are chock-full of friends posting beach photos or the lucky folks on international holidays. Frankly, I'm angry (*cough* jealous).

I know I'm not the only one who works all the time, so my fellow jealous cohorts will appreciate this gif set I compiled of what it's like to have a summer job in college.

When a friend asks you if you want to hang out:

Between work and my Philosophy class, I barely have time to eat, let alone browse jeans at the mall.

Leaving for work before the sun comes up, and then coming home after it goes down:

"The sun ain't even warm yet!":

When you missed your train/bus to get back home:

Those seats are not comfy at all.

Not seeing your family for days:

They're lucky enough to be in bed before 10 p.m.

When you finally get a day off:

Sleeping in until nine a.m. is amazing.

Missing a beach trip with your friends because you have to work on the weekends:

So so so sad.

When a customer asks you another stupid question.

Spending half your paycheck on coffee:


Spending half your paycheck on train/bus fare (or gas):


What you'll look like to your friends when you come back to school:

They'll be broke from goofing off all summer while you're rolling in the cash.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.

Remembering the Memorial in Memorial Union

Sometimes it's hard to remember that Memorial Union at the University of Missouri is actually a memorial, not just a place to take a nap on a couch and get Starbucks.

Soccer, Spain and Racism

When we think of events that have transpired in the US over the last few years, a lot of it ends up in spotlighting the division in the country. However, things across the pond seem to be no better - at least when it comes to sports.
