Summer's lost its loving feeling.

In high school and before, I always looked forward to summer as time off... Now i just find that the school year is more like time off.   Over the summer I have to work twice as many hours and make twice as much effort to see my best friends since we don't all live in the same campus anymore.  Summer's a drag... what do you guys all do to pass the time when you're bored?

     Man, I've been catching up on some movies, hanging out with the best GF in the world, Casey!  and getting some Jupiter Sunrise work done.  I'm a little anxious to go on tour again, as we don't have a real place to live in LA right now.  -Aaron

Yeah, summer definitely loses that loving feeling once you graduate, and you start to realize "... hey, wait a minute, I have to work all the time now!  Like year round!  What the F?!"  It is not a pleasant discovery.  This is why I am boycotting being a grown-up and going back to school.  Nothing like graduate school to prolong adolescence.

... it makes teaching look a lot more appealing!  
 
Another thing that makes this summer go by soooo slow is that so many awesome things happen in the fall... me getting the best roommate ever, who i got to be friends with on this very forum, and 2 awesome people are moving to albany, who i also got to be friends with on this very forum!

I always spent my summers in school taking classes and working a couple jobs, just like most of you.  But now that I've graduated, I'm really enjoying my time off.  Hey, I'm only halfway done with school you know.  So Aaron and I are hanging out, partying, having good times.  It's great.

I saw someone mentioned about possibly becoming a teacher... I totally recommend it.  If you have the opportunity to do it and value free time more than money (not to mention actually doing something with your life besides sitting behind a desk or something) then you really should do it.  
 
I've been teaching for 5 years now and I've never once complained about my summers not being fun!  I don't have much money, but playing shows, hanging out with friends, watching movies, reading books, going to the beach... none of that really costs a lot of money.
 
Most importantly, however, my son will be one year old on Saturday and I got to spend all of last sumemr with him, all of Thanksgiving week, 2 weeks for Christmas, every weekend, all of this summer, etc... Get the point?
 
To me, it's simple.  My time is much more valuable than money.  I'd have to triple my salary to even start considering another job, which isn't going to happen, and even THEN, I know I'd be back teaching within a few years.
 
If you have the time, you should check out the book "All Summer Long" by Bob Greene (1993?).  The characters in this book decide to make summer fun again.
 
By the way, it looks like I'll be out with JS in late-July or early-August, so maybe I'll get to meet some of you...

Mike, that was a great message.  You make teaching sound like the best possible way to spend life.  It's awesome that you have so much time to enjoy the things you love, and it's clear that when you actually are working, you enjoy it very much.  What do you teach exactly?
 
Awesome that you get to go on the road with the band.  Are you going to be taking on a specific role with them or just going along for the ride?  I know they will love to have you.
 
Oh, and funny quote at the end of your message there - Ben described that night to me and it sounded hilarious.

Liv,
 
I teach English, reading, and speech.  I have all 8th graders right now, but the school is a private high school, 8th-12th.
 
I'm actually writing a book about Jupiter Sunrise, which is why I've periodically posted some questions to help me compile info from friends and fans of the band.  The book will be biographical, but will also be sort of a tour journal for the time I'm with them, hopefully one full week.

i guess if the whole rock star thing doesn't work out for me i'll end up teaching... i don't have to be able to bring in tons of money because any future husbands i might have will also be making money.

Ha!  Ash has found the secret to success: the more husbands you have, the more money they will make, and the more free time one will have to devote to being a rock star!  It's genius!  Wink

ok ok that's not what i meant, i just didn't want to limit myself or get myself into trouble by saying "my future husband, scottie...."  so i made it more generalized by saying "any future husbands i might have..."
