Summer Jobs for Students

  Summer is here and there is money to be made especially if you are a college student! I’ve spoken with many students who are taking advantage of their summer break by working extra hours since they are either not taking classes or not taking as many. Are you a college student who is looking to make some extra money? If so, keep reading for a few helpful tips! Figure 1: This is a thumbnail for my YouTube video on Summer Jobs for Students where I am smiling next to money emojis.   The first thing I always recommend is using your campuses’ hiring platform. Many campuses have a special platform that they use to post student jobs that are available on campus. You can also take a stop by the place that you would like to work and ask if they are hiring and how you can apply. Career Services is another great place on campus with leads on available jobs. In undergrad, I worked at a store on campus that served hot and cold foods. I actually was hired during the summer at an on campus-hiring

Adult Daily Living Skills: Microwave Safety

 

Many of us have that one time we put something in the microwave that we were not supposed to. I can remember a time when I put a package of Olive Garden breadsticks in the microwave while they were still inside of the FOIL lined package that said “DO NOT place in microwave!” Thank God, I didn’t leave the kitchen or I may not have seen the sparks flying inside of the microwave. The burnt mark left behind inside of the microwave was a constant reminder of this catastrophe.  There was also the time (about two weeks ago) when I placed a shiny rose gold disposable plate in the microwave at work that had the words “Do NOT place in microwave” written all over the back. I may have missed the smoke billowing out if I had not been standing there!


Figure 1: This is a photo of my thumbnail for my YouTube video on Adult Daily Living Skills: Microwave Safety where I am standing in front of the microwave holding foil and a foil lined oven pan. 


Microwave safety is so important so that you don’t burn down your house, place of business, or destroy your microwave. When microwaving items you want to make sure they are microwave safe. You can do this by turning it over or reading the package of the item you are microwaving. If it says, “Do NOT place in microwave” then that is an indicator that you shouldn’t. Things that are lined in foil or are metal do not go in the microwave. Sometimes you may not notice these things so be sure to inspect your item carefully.

However, microwave safe items such as Tupperware, paper items, and some plastic items can be placed in the microwave. If you are unsure about what to place in the microwave ask someone to avoid any mishaps. You also want to make sure that you clean your microwave on a weekly basis or after any spill. I would recommend you purchase a splatter cover, which helps to keep your microwave clean. Be sure to drop down in the comments to let me know about any of your microwave stories!

Tips for First Year Doctoral Students

  Figure 1 :  This is a picture of a black doctoral cap   Well my first year as a doctoral student has come to an end. I turned in my last assignment of the semester earlier this week and man did it feel good! I still plan to take summer courses but I have about a month break until then. This first year has taught me so much about my major of higher education and myself. This past semester I took on History of Higher Education and Introduction to Quantitative Statistics. While the history course wasn’t so bad the stats course was a whole other ball game! Especially for someone who has always struggled with numbers. This course took a lot of getting used to and reminded me of somethings that all first year doctoral students should know. Figure 2: This is a picture of pink balloon letters that spell the word "friends". First things first make friends with the people in your program. This may be hard due to COVID and if you are in an online program like myself but don’t le

What's Biden Doing for Student Loan Forgiveness? (You May Already Qualify!)

  (This a photo of me smiling at my desk used as a thumbnail for my YouTube video on What's Biden Doing with Student Loan Forgiveness?) A hot topic right now in politics is the Biden Administration and student loan forgiveness. I myself have been keeping up with all headlines regarding this matter because like most of you all I have a student loan balance. While the balance is small compared to most folks, it’s still a balance and where I’m at currently in my debt free journey. In case you were unaware, about two weeks ago a report came out that President Biden asked Michael Cardona, the Secretary of Education to write a memo regarding the legalities of him being able to forgive student loan debt through an executive order and how much can be forgiven. Biden’s main buzz around his campaign to become president was that he would forgive $10,000 in student loan debt. However, now democrats are pressuring him to forgive at least $50K but Biden seems to be unsure about this citing tha
