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: Shopping at Dollar Tree

 

This past weekend I met up with the owners of a residential home for individuals with disabilities to talk about offering a few services for their residents. Before I stopped by, I decided to swing by Dollar Tree to pick up a few things to do a quick demonstration from a recipe in my new eBook. As you know, I am on a debt free journey and I don’t spend anything that I don’t need to. This can definitely be easy to do when everything is a dollar! With my cash envelope in hand and my list on my phone, I decided to record a video of how I typically shop at Dollar Tree.

When shopping you want to ensure that, your list is easily accessible to help you in sticking to your budget and not being sidetracked and forgetting something. You also want to shop at a store that you are familiar with this way you can easily find where things are without getting lost or frustrated. Also, be sure to grab a cart as soon as you walk in so you’re not juggling all of your items at once.

As I was looking for frozen biscuits in the freezer aisle, I realized that they did not have any. If you run into this problem, be sure to carefully comb over the aisle to make sure that the item you’re looking for is not hiding behind anything. If you still can’t find it locate a staff member to ask for assistance.  If they don’t have the item be sure to make a note on your list that you will need to stop by another store and go on to your next item.

Once you’ve finished getting each item head to the front of the store to check out. If you’re like me you look for the shortest line which is very hard in Dollar Tree! I place my items on the conveyor belt neatly so that I can see everything that I will be purchasing. It also helps the cashier to scan each item when they are organized. Do you shop at Dollar Tree? If so, what are your tips for shopping? Drop down in the comments and let me know! Be sure to check out my latest video on how I shop and don’t forget to pick up a copy of my latest eBook Adult Daily Living Skills: What’s the Big Deal?

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
