This is the summer of working hard and making money. And any free time I have will be spent sleeping and hanging with my friends and family. I am working three jobs: a retail position, as a writing and editing intern, and a babysitter. I will be working every day for a total of 53-58 hours a week.
Thankfully, my schedule allows me to have these jobs without having a day off because, on my days off, I will be working on my internship. I will be using all free time to the best of my ability, but I still need to maintain a social life with my friends. So, yes, sometimes I won't get all of my work done for my internship each week, but then on my next day off, I will be twice as productive. If I need to stay up late a couple of nights a week to catch up on work, that's completely fine. Or when I'm on my week-long vacation, I will be bringing my laptop and notes in order to stay on top of my internship responsibilities.
Even though I'm working for the majority of my summer, I'm excited to work on these new experiences. I'm super pumped to babysit a seven-month-old baby and work with a company as an important intern. I had a call with my internship boss the other week and he mentioned all of these awesome things I'm going to be doing: taking a digital marketing course to better my knowledge for this position and a potential career, writing press releases for a published author and getting them published on reputable news sites, creating social media and blog posts, and so much more. I want to create my own blog this summer too because I think that's a great resource to have before I enter the workforce.
Since it is summer and I don't have to worry about classes, homework, and tests, I have a whole list of things I want to do this summer. A good portion of the list are movies and TV shows I want to watch, books I want to read, and things I want to do. Having a few summer jobs can limit how much time I have to do those things, but since I want to do, watch, and read all of these things, I will make the time for them. I haven't had time to read books in months, and I will be doing everything I can to read a handful of books.
I have so much going on this summer but it's all new and exciting. I will be bettering my life with my accomplishments and success in my jobs and the things I do in my free time. I am a very ambitious person and this summer is just going to further that and push me further. It's only been a couple of weeks, but I already have a feeling that this is going to be one of the best summers of my life. I have a lot of goals I want to complete and things I want to do, and I will be doing as many of them as I can with these three months!
