Not all of us are or were blessed with terrific finances while finishing school. A lot of college students are forced to work and take odd jobs just to help pay the bills. I’m sure you’ve heard of or met students who work at McDonald’s or other fastfood joints. Perhaps you’ve met students who moonlight as waiters, bartenders, or gasoline station attendants. Aside from not having a degree yet, dealing with the tight schedules that come with school is a prime reason for the lack of good-paying full-time jobs available for students.

Protecting crops to pay the rent

This is why some students are forced to take any job that comes their way, no matter how weird they are. When you’re back is against the wall and you need money for your next meal, the next school project, and the next rental bill, you will be forced to take anything that life hands down to you. Sure, you can ask help from Mommy and Daddy, but not all parents can shoulder all the expenses. And then there are students who don’t want their parents’ help, no matter how financially capable they are to extend assistance. These students have something to prove and they want to embody the independent college student vibe that they are supposed to have.

So how “weird” are these jobs exactly? It means chopping and cleaning human bones. Standing in the middle of a farm to scare off birds away from the crops. Pretending to be an underage person and see if the person in the store will still sell you beer. Posing nude in front or art students. Or better yet, dress up as an elf and help out Santa at the mall.

Curious, aren’t you? Check out this video to know some of the strangest jobs that students get in order to survive.

The Worst of the Worst in Baby Name Spellings

What’s in a name? A lot, especially if it’s one that’s trying so, so hard to be unique.

When we bring a human being into this world, we want to give them a name that exudes the virtues we want to instill in them. We want their name to be a reflection of their future nature. We want their name to be one they can be proud of. Sometimes though, we just want a name that sounds really cool.

Sadly, some parents didn't get the memo that giving your child a weird name might make them seem unique at first, but can be a headache for the kid, their teachers, their future friends, and the Starbucks barista who has to spell their name someday.

With all these reports telling us that natural disasters are getting more powerful, it's not that hard to suddenly feel hopeless about the phenomenon that is climate change. And considering that the planet is getting hotter and hotter each year, it's only a matter of time before we end up with a Mad Max-esque world, right?

Actually, there is one thing you can do as an individual to affect the tide of climate change. Yes, recycling, reducing vehicular use, using solar panels, and all around shrinking your carbon footprint are great ways to help delay the devastation of climate change. However, there's one other thing you can do to help - and that is to vote.

Your vote actually counts when it comes to climate change.
