Summer has come to mean something different to me. Specifically, it has come to mean nothing but a name for a changing season. I'm still in school, I still go to work -- the only real difference is that the temperature has risen and I can't find the time to go to the beach. My bikini hasn't seen the light of day in years, and Disneyland seems but a distant dream.
It's important to remember, however, that I love my job. It pays me, it shelters me from the horrendous heat of summer in the loving embrace of central air conditioning, and it's a lot of fun.
Sometimes, work might seem like it's interfering with life, fun and, most importantly, vacation. The secret to work is to make it interesting no matter what. In honor of this philosophy, I present a guide to making work life more interesting. This dignified, inspirational piece will help remind you that summer is still fun -- the meaning has just changed a little.
