    I spent my summer working

    as a gymnastics coach. I worked with 3-6 year olds a few hours a week, and in return the gym owner credited my account $9 an hour. I love working there.

    I've been at work since 9 this morning

    and I haven't had a single phone call. I'm a receptionist, my job is to answer the phone, and no one is calling, which means I'm very bored sitting at this desk.
