What's your job this summer, or, more generally, what's your job, non-school?

I'm currently doing construction with my dad.

None, thank God. Last Summer, I worked at a Quizno's, and that, for lack of a better term, sucked.

I am or will be a full time student. My mom's rule is go to school or get a job, so I don't have to get a job right now.

My parents are making me get a job for the summer, as well.

A friend suggested I get a job at the local mall, but doing what?

Gamestop just bought out EBGames, so maybe I can hit up a job there.

I'm going to Dom. Rep. for summer vacation. Sadly, I'll be back to my Customer Service work on the fall.

I continue to be a legal assistant full time, though I'll be going back to school in the fall. Yeehaw!

I'm currently trying to balance summer school and doing maintenance jobs on a landlady's home.

I'm teaching SAT prep for The Princeton Review, which I do a little during the school year and substantially more in the summer. I'm also hoping that I'll get around to working on my Latin and Greek, but I haven't done much of anything yet.

I'll screw around all summer pretending to work, but no one ever checks up on me, so it's cool if I just work in the garden or go fishing. Gonna remodel my house too, so that will take away from any potential I had for being remotely interested in working.
On the other hand I need the paycheck to pay for that other fun stuff, so I guess another summer will fly by with me wishing I could be having fun instead of work. Of course, on the other hand, since I have three hands, my job rocks and I regularly work at home so I could be gardening and "thinking about work stuff" at the same time. Actually, that sounds much more interesting than working and "thinking about gardening stuff."
So that's what I'll do this summer. Except in July, when I definitely will be salmon fishing in the Pac Ocean. :D

Still full-time student/programming apprentice, and will probably continue to be so for another two years. ;)

I'm not old enough to get a job this winter, but I will be during the summer over Christmas. It seems I've got a spot at Burger King with my name on it, but I think I'll aim a little higher for my first job.

Done the Aeneid yet? It's a pretty fun time, not too rough, but you'll still manage to learn a lot. Gotsta love the Augustian propaganda!

That was a pretty breathtaking thread though - a true piece of work. :D

I read a bunch of the Aeneid for class last semester. My plan was to read Book 6 and maybe some of... uh... something from the second half this summer. And probably some Cicero.

And for Greek, I'm probably going to try to read part of Plato's Apology.

Cicero is good fun - the Catalinian conspiracy is a classic (no pun intended). O tempora! O mores! The righteous indignation is thick. :)

Other fun (though a bit tricky) Latin stuff is Suetonius' account of Caligula. Avoid Caesar like the plague - it's pretty dull. I didn't mind Livy so much.

I cut my Platonic Greek teeth on Crito. The Apology is probably more fun though. If you're a masochist, you could always go for Thucydides. Very tough, from what I recollect, but worth it for Pericles' funeral oration. If you're tired of the optative mood, you can always go Greek NT.

I sort of remember liking Caesar a bit. The military history was pretty cool, straight from the horse's mouth. You had to try to remember that it was all spin for the Senate, but it was hard to because it all seemed so straightforward and matter-of-fact. Which was either good writing or good spin, or both.

By now that's all faded away almost totally, alas; I can barely recall the odd line.

I don't want the whole Aeneid, but I'd actually really like the opening dozen lines or so, if anyone can provide them. I always wanted to memorize them but never really got around to it.

I going to try to finish a good book I started - The Fabric of the Cosmos by Brian Greene. Anyone else read that one? I think it's better than Greek and Latin or whatever, but imho, I guess, so go for it, Kel!

Other than that, I'd rather not go without a summer job, even though I have a choice. Money! @_@

I had my first day of summer classes on Tuesday. Ugh, Physics. Apparently it'll be my last bit of school for a while, though, seeing as I've managed not to meet my probational GPA and will be forced to stay out of college for at least a semester. :( Currently, plans are in the making for working full time in Champaign during the next school year, so as to still live in the house me and a bunch of pals signed the lease for last fall.

For me school begins on the 20th of this month, and I am eager to start :)

I'll be taking Psychology (and maybe Astronomy) in the summer and Anatomy and Anthropology in the fall.

Save your money and don't take anthro, unless it's very archaeology-oriented. Otherwise, it may as well be called subjective-ology, because there's no way culture can truly be objectively analyzed.

Attempting to understand other cultures is not without merit; pretending that the process is a science is.
