April 20, 2011The Habits Of Highly Effective 1960’s Teens
Do you ever feel like you are wasting your spare time? That you aren’t living up to your potential?
Do you have a few extra hours in the day you are dying to use up?
Well, we can help you with that! Your Home and You, a home economics book published in 1961, has several excellent and worthy suggestions for your extra hours that are burning a hole in your pocket!
This is your time! Alter as you see fit to reflect your own schedule. For example, you could increase “Sleep” to say…ohhhhh…10, 12 hours. Or add 4 hours of internet time. I mean, however your day goes, right?
But, even then you’ll have hours to spare!
Well, how about some suggestions to fill in some of those spare hours?
You could take up a hobby, like:
Morse code, (Honest to god)
Playing in the orchestra,
Members of the school orchestra find that the hobby of playing a musical instrument is most satisfying.
The family enjoys the girl’s hobby of stamp collecting.
Cooking and gift wrapping hobbies are a useful combination for gift giving.
Working to be the town’s best teen-age cook,(which, I must admit, is my dream)
The hobby of photography is a fine way to preserve happy memories of special events and trips.
Or, if you want to use up some free time and make some cash, you can take up a part-time job like:
A paper route has been the first step toward success in the careers of many of today’s influential citizens.
Working in a Grocery Store,
Soda Fountain Jerk, and
Gas Station Attendant.
There! Now you can make use of all your time in an effective manner, and maybe even make some cash on the side!
