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: Using Nair (Grooming)

 

As a Special Education teacher, I would have parents often ask me about ways to groom their students i.e. hair removal, hair care, and other things. Many of them were worried about their students hurting themselves or using too much of a given product and making a mess. I would often recommend things like Nair, a hair removal chemical that for the most part is safe but would require some supervision. I like Nair because it is quick, cheap, and does not require a lot of work. I typically use Nair every two weeks on my underarms, legs, and top lip (yes, Ms. Duggan has a mustache!).

Now although Nair is a great product to use there are somethings that you should be aware of. Keep in mind that Nair is a chemical, has a strong smell, and should only be left on for no more than 6-8 minutes. If you are someone, who does not like strong smells and has sensitive skin this may not be an option for you.  Also, only put the product where you want to remove unwanted hair. Stay away from your eyebrows, hair that is on top of your head, or anywhere else you want to keep your hair.

Once you’re ready to get rid of your unwanted hair be sure to wear a pair of shorts so the product does not get on your clothes. When I Nair my legs I squeeze out a nice sized portion onto my hands and pat the product on to my legs and thighs. Be sure to work quick as the product does start to work as soon as you place it on. Once you finish both legs let the product sit for no longer than eight minutes. If you feel any burning or tingling before then be sure to remove it immediately. I then get in the tub, turn on the hot water, and take a washcloth to wipe off the hair. Once you’ve gotten all the hair and product off use some shower gel to wash your legs off. This will make sure all of the product is off and you don’t smell like Nair.

When talking to your student about grooming I would recommend that you introduce Nair by describing the purpose of the product and how to use it safely. How do you remove unwanted hair? Drop down in the comments and let me know!  Check out the video below and tell me if you typically use Nair. Also, don’t forget to purchase a copy of my new eBook where I talk about grooming!

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
