It’s that time of year again. The time when God can’t decide whether Texas should get cold weather or hot weather. So, instead of basking in the sun like people in Los Angeles or shoveling snow from the driveway like Boston, Texans are stuck at home with fevers, coughs, seasonal allergies, and runny noses. Well, I am anyways.
So, in honor of Texas being so undecisive, here’s what to “expect” in the last week of February 2010. Just remember, I’m using the word expect very lightly. If you expect some kind of weather from Texas, you probably don’t have a high chance of getting it.
Mon, Mar 1:
Rain, 44° – 35°
Tue, Mar 2:
Partly Cloudy, 51° – 35°

If you think I’m some weather-magician and just figured that out by looking out at the day outside, consider yourself disappointed. Weather.com (ironically about…weather!) is a perfect place to check out questions about weather. Just a safety precaution from me: be sure to check the weather before going cross-country on vacation. Make sure to look at signs that say: DANGER! NO ROAD AHEAD! They might prove to be helpful:) And always plan ahead.
Speaking about planning and being helpful, on to my blog for this week. In a year, I will be out driving in the same road as you. In the next couple of years, your brother or sister may be driving in the same road as you. In five years, you may be driving in the same road as us. Just always remember to be careful when you’re going out on new endevours, like, for instance, finding a new job.
I used to babysit when I was as young as twelve. You may already have a job, you may not have any intentions of having a job until you’re 30, or you may be looking for a job. I’m here for the rescue. Duhn-duh-dah!
Brownie points if you can guess what you need to apply for a job…
A résumé, you say? You’re absolutely right. Before you can walk up to Rue 21’s manager, you need to have a résumé on board. What exaclty is a résumé? It is simply a brief written account of personal, educational, and professional qualifications and experience. It’s about you, how much time you’ve spent in school, which schools you’ve attended, and what things you are awesomely awesome at( please don’t put that word on your next English essay…unless you’re well prepared for an F-)! Here’s how a typical résumé should look like:
Your name should be BIG
City, State – Zip Code
(Area Code) ###-####
(For Pete’s sake, please don’t put in an email like [email protected]!)
- NAME(LIST FROM LAST SCHOOL TO FIRST SCHOOL), TITLE
- CITY, STATE/COUNTRY
- (GPA: …)
- Sorry…there should be no bullets for CITY, STATE/COUNTRY and (GPA: …), but I can’t seem to delete it right.
Computer Literate, etc.
Honors and Activities
PART OF ANY SPORTS TEAMS, OR “EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH,” ETC.
Name of company by most recent (Years Worked)
So there you have it: the key to your next job. So, in closing, have a great week and…stay out of trouble!
