Summer Jobs For High School Students – Stuck In A Cycle?

While on vacation I've been thinking about what people do to make money.

Summer Jobs For High School Students – Mindset

It's okay for a 18 year old high school student or even a college student to to and get a quick job to trade some time for money. Sure the pay might suck but what else are  your options, right?

Well, kids are kids and they don't know better. They are told to go to school and get a good job. If your “lucky” you will find something you can maybe go ahead and make a career out of.


Why do so many people that I come in contact with go into careers that either don't pay enough or they just plain hate? If your not getting paid then at least do it for passion. I just don't how driving a public transit bus or picking up garbage can be for passion or to a career path.

The only thing I can maybe think of is that they have given up OR just know better? Sure there are special situations but there has to be a time in place when one takes a look at what they have accomplished and where they are going.
