All Things New for August

As I type this post, the rap song by Bone Thugs-N- Harmony hums in my head. The title of the song is "1st of Tha Month" and I imagine the YouTube video is getting lots of hits. It has the hippest lyrics and beat!

It's back-to-school in the next few weeks for some kids and the 'staycations' that became popular are gearing up. There are plenty of ways to enjoy a summer vacation right in your city or town that is budget-friendly. With a little planning, a day trip to a state park or drive to a local lake is a fun adventure the whole family will enjoy. Fill up the car, pack a picnic lunch, and head somewhere for the 'staycation' of a lifetime.

Let me throw this tidbit on for size. If anyone has spent the summer job hunting with no success, get a boost in the new month by updating your resume and checking back with hiring managers. Go ahead and include any volunteer work you have been doing which adds a pop to your resume. It lets hiring officials know you have been active doing something. We all know the applicant pools are flooded so find ways to make yourself shine when your resume or online application reaches the company.

Have a Happy Hump Day on the 1st of the month!
