So what are you folks gonna do? Anything fancy?


For my part... dunno. I want to find a place to settle for now. Also might go on a trip with comrades but have to work out the logistics of that.

Not much to be honest, Might go to some hotels up in Orlando with my family. I have really just been spending each day either programming or enjoying some games.

Summer vacations mean exam time for me.

All nicely spread in a way I can't do anything longer than a week :/

I'm looking for a summer job for this summer and next summer. If I can find one I'll start working on getting my non-driver license.

Then I'm planning to visit the college I wanna attend someday if we can afford. Probably not but we'll see. I just don't wanna have a job with a huge college debt to pay off.

Aaaand I gotta give my bike a tune-up as soon as I get my new one, which should be in November.

So this will be cool I guess.

Work on some projects that I had paused for a while, such as the Densha de GO! wiki-ish-type page, an unnamed project, a second unnamed project, and a third one that I haven't even started yet.

So this summer I finally got off my lazy ass and joined the work force! So far I've made $548.08. this Saturday I'll be on a plane to Maine, we were allowed to pick our seats so I'll most likely be sitting next to a random person. I'll still bring my pro controller if they want to like play Mario kart or something.

Cool! What job do you work as and when did you start? I also assume your on vacation?

I didn't do anything this summer

I was looking for jobs but I kinda stopped after the fifth application.

I hate looking for jobs! So tedious so mind-numbing! It feels impossible when you have ADHD that makes this even harder.

I'm still working on a 3D model and I'm also working on a drawing, though. Maybe I should showcase the Mario I drew in my post layout. I think I've improved.

I hate looking for jobs!

same!!

even moreso when a) you basically have the pressure to 'find a job or end up in the streets' because hurr capitalism and b) those shitbag recruiters act like you're seeking a job for your sole pleasure

not to be like a dick or anything but it was pretty easy to find a job for me. I just 2 at the same time, one for Chilfila(CFA) an one for Sonic, Sonic didn't reply but CFA did and now i have the job and today is my last day until next summer.
This whole year I got $700. But I did a 50% to savings and 50% to spending so i really got like 300~. I plan on getting a Oculus Rift + Touch Controls before the new graphics card so I can brag about it.

good for you then.

I just hate the whole concept.

moreso because job hunting as a developer is a shitshow. what you want is a job that a) allows you to live and b) is somewhat related to what you enjoy, so it's less shitty. but noooope, they all expect you to pick a VERY SPECIFIC DOMAIN and place all your bets on that one horse. got no professional experience in THAT ONE VERY SPECIFIC DOMAIN? no job for you, fuck you and have a nice day. doesn't matter what other experience (professional or not) you can show off, doesn't matter that you can show ability to quickly learn things and manage the job, etc...

hell, mom has been in that kind of position too, she faked her resume to get her current job, pretending she knew something they asked for and she didn't know, but she learnt it on the job and managed.


and I hate spending hours to make fancypants resumes and cover letters and suck up to these dickbags only to be rejected over and over again.

I wish I was able to have a skill like your mother has. Where you can learn while doing, I have to learn before doing. My parents have been bugging me about working during the school year but I need to focus on my grades so I'm not still working at CFA for the rest of my life.

Since I'm not applying for a job I'll be working at my whole life I dont really put that much interesting stuff into my resumes. Also my life is pretty boring.

lucky

I know people who have to job search and apply for weeks and several times a day and it feels they'll be lucky to get a call back.

I wouldn't go far to call employers dickbags because chances are they probably are swamped with resumes and applications and while you're technically qualified, they have to pick only a few people and sometimes, I feel they might as well draw blindly with a hat.

I was able to get an internship job right after I finished high school, but then that finished and now I'm college so it's going to have to wait a little bit until I get another one.
