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? !

Later,
Simon
