Summer jobs are another great resource for beating boredom. They are as wide and varied as your imagination. Cleaning brush, mowing lawns, weeding gardens, flipping burgers at the local hamburger joint, and the list goes on.
Summer jobs accomplish a whole list of things:
- the value of scheduling (have to be to work on time)
- the value of responsibility (most bosses won't step in and clean up your messes)
- the value of saving money
- the value of spending your money wisely
- the joy of cashing your first (and subsequent) paychecks
- the self-confidence related to a "good job" from your boss
- the experience demonstrated on a resume
You never know what opportunities will open up as the result of a summer job!
