Summer Stand

It's blistering hot and you can't hit the pool or do anything because you've got the no-money blues - never fear! There's an easy way to make a few bucks when the sun is shining, and people will even thank you for it!  First thing is first, you need to decide where you want to have your stand and ideally rope your BFF or your siblings into helping out (just remember to be fair and split the profits at the end of the day!) If you pick a park or a beach, you're bound to get a ton of walk-by traffic, but you might need to enlist your parents to help you car the stuff there, and help set up. Check out the list of things you'll need.

What You'll Need

  • Lemonade
  • Table (a folding table is ideal if you're going far from your house)
  • Tablecloth (this can piece of drop cloth)
  • Plastic Cups
  • A sign (this could be a fun art project on it's own, remember to set your price and stick to it)
  • A cooler or ice (especially if you aren't near your house)
  • Apron (lemonade doesn't seem messy, but accidents happen!)
  • Change (people might ask you to break a bill)

Tips & Tricks

  • There are lots of ways to make your stand more appealing, here are a few of them:
  • Decorate your table with flowers
  • Make your sign colorful and enticing! Lemonade is a cheerful business after all
  • Whether you decide to make your lemonade from scratch or from concentrate, make it more enticing by adding slices of lemon at the top (it'll make it taste fresher too!)
  • Don't be shy! Make sure people know you're there and then reel them in with your charm.

I need help in school but no matter how the teachers word things i cant get it. How do I make my mom listen to me and take me to the doctor? Its been getting worst too. I have had problems remembering what we did the day before is certain classes. HELP ME!  At first, I thought it sounded like ADD, but it wouldn't effect your memory like it is. If not, catch your mom while she's not rushing around. Maybe before she goes to bed or while she's making dinner. Maybe even while she's sitting down or send her a text for her to see when she can. I wish the best of luck with the stress! It most likely doesn't help with the APD; stress can add to just about any condition!
