Default How should I celebrate after summer school?

Maybe work on the car? Mow the yard? Clean the garage? Sit on couch? Clean fridge?
I got it. Eureka..... Im going to the junk yard... That'* what Ill do. Wait I have no money. I guess I could just take things apart. I could look for tires there for my other car. Yeah, that would be an ok idear.

Junk yard it is.

Feel free to offer suggestions that cost little or no money. School ends Thursday night. Wish me luck. I have three tests in one week.

By the way. Does anyone have any experience with dyslexia? Yourself or your children.

What you might be able to do is, if you're lucky and not urgently needing parts, is to go junkyard hunting and literally hide parts in a nook or cranny in a car. In a pick-your-part yard, hopefully the car will remain there in a week or a few days, when you might have money thanks to payday or whatnot.


"reserved!"

Go fishing, that'* what I do when I'm broke and looking for something to do. Also, look into building a potato cannon, depending on your resources, you can make one pretty cheap.

I built a trebuchet for physics class this year. Using scrap wood at The Home Depot and some stuff just lying around at a friend'* house, we spent about $22 CAD on it, including spray paint for decoration




Stuff that launches projectiles is a good idea. It can be cheap, safe if you know what you're doing, and hella fun

you could also find a remote corner of the junkyard with no fence, use google maps to find out the closest road near by, and take the parts you need on a "hike" to see the road. Just make sure that none of them "accidentally" get left behind. This is not condoned, but I know a couple friends with limited budgets who do this...

you could actually start hitting the books for the upcoming year so you don't have to spend the summer in school next year!

just a thought -
