The Dog Days of Summer
August is here, and you may be feeling the summer doldrums. It’s at this time when many of us start to get antsy and eager to return to a routine – one that a school schedule helps to provide. If you spent your summer working, you may also be feeling the itch to return to class so you can spend more time with your friends. However you spent the first portion of your summer, now is the time to start preparing for the school year ahead.
Will you be entering post-secondary school for the first time? This is a very exciting time in your life – so enjoy it! One of my favourite things about preparing for post-secondary education was the shopping; for a lot of people, this will be the first time that they really have to think about the items they need to live their life. Your own cooking pots, plates, heck, even toilet paper – you need to start analyzing life in a different way and making priorities when it comes to your purchases.
For students in high school, you’re probably dreaming about your future and what life post-high school will hold for you. Take the time to explore JobsPeopleDo.com and learn about the different career paths available to you. There is so much to discover and so many different paths your life could take!
As always, we have a fresh list of ten scholarships that you can apply for this month – don’t be afraid to go for that free money! You’ll be glad you did.
Enjoy the remainder of your summer, and we will see you back here in September with a few new features that you’re sure to love.
