You can really feel summer in the air lately, can't you? I can guarantee this one is going to be a good one - I just feel really good about it. Now how am I going to come up with the cash to fund all this fun?

The school year ends in a little more than a month, which means that's how much time I have to find a summer job. Last year I worked at Vanessa's dad's ice cream stand, but I seriously doubt he'll want me back after forcing us to "break up". Shhh... it's totally on the down-low that we're still seeing each other.

My employment options are pretty much limited to all the regular summer jobs. I could flip burgers, mow lawns, or look after runny nosed children. As you could probably guess, the babysitting option is my least favorite. Maybe I could do something entrepreneurial? Though that would take a lot of effort, and I'm not exactly a fan of effort. Hmm... this is a tough call and I have less than two months to figure it out (and then convince someone to give me a job!).

I suppose the other thing I could do is just try to think of a ton of things that don't cost money, therefore eliminating the need to get a job. It's too bad most of my favorite things require money because this could be a seriously brilliant idea if I was into picking flowers and taking long walks on the beach. Besides, my mother would kill me if I didn't even try to get a job.

So what are your plans for the summer? Are you planning to get a job? Are your ideas any better than mine? !

    Tell that girl that she looks so horrible she makes roadkill look beautiful. Clap your hands really loud with nobody looking and then say "HEY WHY'D YOU HIT ME?" (Don't thank me thank Diary of a Wimpy Kid) Tell someone. Tell a teacher or somebody Or ignore that excuse for a person and get on with your life without her I mean, it.
