Finally, the weather is taking a beautiful turn.  I’m sick of looking at rain, wind, and darkness.  The temperature is rising and spring is beginning to bloom.  Amazing… 😉

However, I also kind of dread the arrival of Spring…..  I have mad allergies. XP  O dear, every year when pollen begins to disperse throughout the air, my suffering begins.  There is nothing worse than having itchy, watery eyes, sneeze attacks all the time, a stuffy nose, and a weakened immune system.  Sounds horrible, eh?  Imagine getting the worst of the worst of these symptoms!  And it sucks that AP season is in the midst of it all! (as are SAT II’s and finals, and regents exams)

Can you imagine trying to study for exams while fighting allergies?!  For the past few years, I’ve spent more time trying to widen my eyes and get rid of the water and itch than actually studying!  It’s absolutely painful!  And I remember last year when I was practicing an exam for AP World, every time I dropped my head a little lower to look at the page, my nose clogged up!  Tissues left and right and drippy, red eyes.  O gosh, and it doesn’t help that I live in a community where there are a lot of trees.  It’s nice, sure, but not when they start to bloom.

Then when allergy season is finally over, Autumn comes and lifts away every piece of leaf.  That means that during the Spring, my misery starts all over again,,, and again,,, and again,,, and so on….


Onto other topics, LOL, because I’m sure you don’t want to hear me whining about sucky allergies for an entire post (I can do that actually 😦 ), let’s talk about summer jobs.  Yes, the time has come for me to get a job so that I can contribute to my college tuition.  O everything seems to go so fast now!  In 1 more year, I’ll be in college… that’s just crazy…  And now, I’m already looking for a job!  gahhhhh~  Since I don’t have prior experience in working, I’m going to have to start small.  The  question is, where?  Well, I’m hoping to counsel kids… that’s for one.  I’ve already began the application process so no worries there…  Okay, but since many kids are looking for jobs right now, I might not even get a counseling job!  That’s not the important thing though… I kinda hope to tutor.

The only thing is that I don’t know where to begin to look for kids who need tutors over the summer.  I mean, I can soooo tutor kids for the English, Math, or World History regents exams… or just those subjects in general.  But where do I find these kids who need my tutoring?!  Most likely, these parents will find professional tutors, such as from companies or professors.  Therefore, I’m offering low rates (haven’t decided yet, but I’m considering $15 per hour) for temporary tutoring over the summer.  You know?  If a parent wants to save money and just boost up their child’s grades a little bit, I can totally do that!  *sigh*

If you are reading this post, help me spread the word that I can tutor over the summer!  Pleassseeee~!  And if you or anyone you know needs a tutor, let me know!  Leave me a comment on this post and I’ll talk with you further about this… Thankees 🙂
