5 Ideal Summer Jobs For Those Looking For A Productive, Enjoyable Way To Spend Summer 2021

Looking for a summer job and need some inspiration? Look no further. Here are my top five recommendations for summer jobs, some "skilled" jobs and other "unskilled" jobs!

1. Lifeguard!

This is a job that I can first handedly tell you is so much fun. From working at a water park, recreation center, or a children's summer camp, being a lifeguard is so much fun. It is generally around $200 to get your Lifeguard, CPR/AED, and First Aid certification, but it lasts two years and lifeguard can make upwards of $20/hour. You'll have down times as a lifeguard too, and it's nice balance for your ideal summer job!

2. Host!

Let's be real. Not all of us have the time, strength, or energy to be lifeguards, and that's totally okay! My next job recommendation would be to try working in a restaurant for that priceless customer service experience. Most "introductory" jobs offered at restaurants come in the form of host jobs, where you typically seat guests. Hosts tend to make a decent hourly wage, along with tips from servers at some restaurants.

3. Remote Assistant!

I have seen SO many of these opportunities pop up. Remote assistants became a huge industry through COVID, and now, people are realizing it is an efficient way to have an assistant! If you're organized and on top of things, I would look up different jobs as a remote assistant. You can do this job from anywhere, sometimes on your own schedule, for what seems to be good pay for most of these jobs!

4. Bev Cart Attendant!

Managing a beverage cart at a golf course or country club can be hot during the summer, especially in Florida. However, the stories and experiences that one gains as a bev cart attendant are amazing! The tips are fantastic and you get to drive golf carts around. What's not to like about that?

5. Babysitter!

Make your own hours, typically set your own rate, and pick your own clients. Sounds great! Building a reputation as a good and trusted babysitter can pay off BIG TIME in the long run, especially in your local community where you live. Ironically enough, babysitting entails a lot of qualities that employers may even look for one day. Don't discount this summer job!

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
