I'm so excited!! I've been looking for a summer job but it's been a PAIN because I am still at my internship two days a week til the end of June seeing as how I'm working in an elementary school and that is when their school year ends (as opposed to everyone else in my program who is DONE already!). On Monday a job opp came through the listserv from the assistant dean looking for someone to work at the help desk for 30 hrs wk at $12/hr over the summer and I called a left a message, and emailed her back just in case she didn't get the message, and she and the help desk person interviewed me over the phone today and I got the job!! It's PERFECT! It's a mile from where I live, and the pay is decent, and it's not too many hours (since I'm also in internship still and start summer session May 31!), and it may lead to an assistantship in the fall!! I've been so stressed out about money (and my lack thereof), this is just great!

Woot! Congratulations!

Well I'm not living with my parents this summer. THAT IS AN IMPORVEMENT! I *really* didn't want to move back in with them last year...

I'm either going to co-op (which is a paid internship, which is required for my degree, 40 hours a week for at least 10 weeks) or I'm going to take classes full time.

Since March I've been on co-op working on software for a very large payroll processing company, I'm there for 13 weeks, which is ending June 2nd. I wasn't in class at all during that time, so it isn't like I didn't get a break. I will miss the income though!!!

Summer classes suck though, not many offered, all at night... but it is hard to get a co-op for the summer on short notice. (I thought I was staying with my company now for the summer for a while but it was my mistake)
