Hey guys. Today is a talky blog. I did a story time post a few months ago, and I wanted to do another. I wanted to tell you all what I’m doing this summer! 🙂 This isn’t a post about all the fun things I’m doing. Rather, it’s about how I’m making money. I know I’ve mentioned work and lifeguarding in videos and posts, but I haven’t really explained what it is that I am doing.
So, first of all, I’m living at home, which is a huge plus because I don’t need to pay rent. I also get to spend time with my family, which I don’t get to do during the year since my college is pretty far away.
Now… how am I making money this summer? Well. I have two jobs: my internship, and my lifeguarding gig. I am doing IT work for my internship. As some of may know, I’m an English major, but I’ve previously worked in the tech field, so I have some experience. It isn’t terribly far away from my house, which is why I’m still able to live at home. When I’m done with my internship, I head to my lifeguarding job! It isn’t far from my job to the pool, which is a huge bonus, because I don’t want to spend all of my money on gas. Every now and then, I’m called in for extra lifeguarding shifts, but I really don’t mind that. The kids that I’m lifeguarding this year are really friendly, and I’m happy because they actually listen when I tell them to stop fooling around. 🙂 I’m very busy during the day, as you can imagine, but I really do enjoy both of the things I am doing (except when I forget SPF lip balm… ow).
If you have any questions about internships/jobs/whatever, leave me a comment down below, and I will be sure to answer them to the best of my ability! 🙂
