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!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
