Is doing nothing over a summer really that bad?
It's the summer between my freshman and sophomore year of college and I have done almost nothing. Every summer I have either worked or volunteered, but this summer my mom and I moved to a new state and I had to spend most of my time helping her unpack and settle into the new place. When I was finished helping her, I couldn't seem to find a job because most jobs were already set up in advance.
Currently my major is undecided but I'm leaning toward Education. Usually over the summer, I would work as a day camp counselor, lifeguard, and swim instructor, but I couldn't seem to nail down a job fast enough because my mom needed me to focus all my energy on the move, which I was happy to help with.
For the past few weeks, I have just been sleeping, hanging out by the pool, and seeing family and friends. There's only about a month left until I go back to school and I don't know if anyone will hire someone for only a month. I'm worried that I'll do damage to my resume if I don't fill my summer with amazing internships and jobs. Will this seriously affect me?
