Brian: Marni, have you ever had a summer job before?
Marni: Of course I’ve had a summer job. I’ve had a multitude of summer jobs.
Brian: Really? Did you find that to be stressful because you weren’t actually taking a vacation or taking a break?
Marni: Sometimes you kind of wish I could be lazy and casual all summer. And just go with the flow. But ultimately, it’s nice to have that opportunity to make some money.
Brian: One of my favorite summer jobs was actually, after taking a break from school, I’d go back and I was a painter for the school district. So I would still be at campus. But painting all of the doors, and the exteriors, and the classrooms. It was fun because I got to see my teachers and everyone who worked at the school in a totally different light.
Marni: That would be kind of a neat situation. Seems like you probably gained some valuable experience. Bet you’re a pretty good painter now.
Brian: Yeah. It totally helped me. And now I can paint walls seamlessly.
Marni: I always think of seasonal work, too. Sometimes it’s nice when the Christmas season, or the holiday season, to pick up a little extra money there, too. And think of summer that way.
Brian: As long as you don’t waste it. It’s a great way to save up money and have a savings account for later.
Marni: It’s true. Yeah. Let’s go get some summer jobs.
