Simon blogs about his new summer job in his free online teen journal.

I was SO right when I said I thought this was going to be a great summer. In fact, it's shaping up to be the best summer ever. Why? Because I just landed my perfect summer job. In fact, it could be more than a summer job. It could be my ultimate career!

So here's my big announcement, people - I'm going to be a skateboarding instructor! How cool is that?! I got the gig after cruising around a bunch of skate shops to see if they were looking for summer staff. I wasn't having much luck until a guy at one store told me about a local day camp for kids that's looking for instructors. He said he gave me their details - and the rest is history. I got the job!

Everything about the job is fantastic. The hours are reasonable (10AM to 3PM Monday through Thursday) and, while I'm not going to be able to retire on how much money I'm making, it's a lot better than the minimum wage gig I had last summer. Ha! And my mom always said, "No one's ever going to pay you to roll around on that board of yours." Well mom, looks like you were wrong.

OK, OK - enough about the job (but seriously, it's wicked news isn't it?). School is starting to wrap up for the year, which means my mom is breathing down my neck to spend more time studying and less time playing foosball. I really wish she'd back off. I swear that she would actually go to school with me every day if she didn't have to go to work.

Do your parents go as crazy as mine do around exams? What are your plans for the summer? Drop me a line and .

Later,
Simon

    Are You Getting a Job This Summer?

    • Yeah, I need cash!
    • No, I want to play all summer long.
    • Maybe - haven't made up my mind yet.
    • I might volunteer at one or two places.
