Today I am linking up with Chelsea over at The Girl Who Loved to Write!
Her link-up is summer favorites, which she gave the idea of recipes, party ideas, DIYs, etc.
So I know what you're thinking, Why the heck would she put a job as a summer favorite??
I'll keep this short because I don't have pictures and I know some people just click away when it's all a bunch of words.
(No hard feelings, I do it too when I'm not in the mood to read a lot.)
Although summer is usually thought of as a time to relax, take vacations, and even sit on the couch all day, that is not what my summer is looking like.
This summer I got hired to work at the Jewish Community Center in my college town.
They hold summer camps for pretty much all ages and they do everything from a regular day camp, to sports camp, to leadership camps.
I will be working in the day camp with ages Kindergarten through 2nd grade, but specifically I will be an advocate to a participant with special needs.
I cannot tell you how excited I am. I'm pretty much getting paid to go to camp myself, although I obviously have a lot more responsibility than just having fun.
I am really excited to be an advocate because I have taken a few special education courses and they have been some of my favorite. So much so that I am thinking of having my career be something along the lines of working with children with special needs - although I really don't know what yet.
I'm hoping that this summer job can give me some insight into what I really want to do with myself after I graduate.
So far I have only been through Orientation. The actual camp starts on Tuesday!
And the whole point of this post is to really say that having a summer job doesn't have to be terrible! If you are doing something you love, you can definitely still have an amazing summer, even if it is filled with work. And it can possibly even turn into your summer favorite!
So go to Chelsea's blog and link up your summer favorite!
I would love to see some favorite recipes or DIY projects because my weekends are still wide open to do fun stuff like that. :)
And before I go, I'm just curious if any of you have a summer job that you genuinely enjoy? Or if you possibly had a part-time job that turned into an awesome career! Let me know, I would love to hear from you!
