Guest Post by Viv Daniels: Weird College Jobs I Had

In my new book ONE & ONLY, Tess is a poor college student in desperate need of cold, hard cash. This is a common problem for college kids, and certainly one I had. It’s hard to balance classes, extracurricular activities, and campus jobs. I myself had a variety of campus jobs and tried other money-making ventures, too. Here are a few of the most memorable:

1) Fossil labeler: For one semester I sat in a corner of a paleontology lab room, sifting through literal shoeboxes of rocks and entering the info scrawled on them in marker into a computer database. Shoeboxes. Filled with tiny pebbles marked with what looked to me like little scratches or, at best, broken shells. I wasn’t exactly handling T-Rex skulls. I imagine, from an academic perspective, that these scratched rocks are extremely important, but man, was that gig boring.

2) Floral assistant: Loved this job, especially during the depths of the harsh New Haven winter, when the shop was a warm green paradise this Florida girl craved. I learned a lot about flower arranging, preservation, and identification. Too bad the shop was so far away from my dorm and classes. It made it too difficult to get back and forth, and too inconvenient to keep.

3) Rare Book Jacket Maker: Ugh. This job. I thought it would be perfect for me. It was in the school’s famously huge library, it involved preserving rare books… but the reality of that job was not the description. The library employee running the program had concocted the most bizarre, convoluted, time-consuming method of making these cardboard covers. You took a rare book down from the stacks, measured it, wrote down the measurements, put the rare book back into the stacks, went to an office all the way across the labyrinthine underground library system where you entered the measurements you took into a computer that spit out the measurements of the cardboard cover you were about to make, went to a third place where you got the cardboard pieces. Put them on a CART to wheel them across the labyrinthine library system to a fourth place where you cut the cardboard with a paper cutter, a fifth place to glue the cardboard, then you went back to the first place, got the book down from the stacks again, then tried to put the book inside. Errors in measurement as small as a sixteenth of an inch required beginning the process all over again. After one afternoon of hoofing it all over creation and not managing a single usable jacket — I quit.

4) Science experiment: When I realized a steady job wasn’t fitting into my schedule, I took to trying to make spare cash when I could find it. Psych grad students would pay ten-to-fifteen dollars a pop for filling out a survey and participating in a brief interview. I once got forty dollars for letting them put me in an MRI machine and mapping my brain. The only hard part is I had to lie perfectly still, in the dark, and not fall asleep. Which is way harder than you’d think.

I like writing books SO MUCH better!

About this Book:

One night they can’t forget…

Tess McMann lives her life according to the secrets she’s sworn to keep: the father who won’t acknowledge her, the sister who doesn’t know she exists, and the mother who’s content playing mistress to a prominent businessman. When she meets the distractingly cute Dylan Kingsley at a prestigious summer program and falls in love, Tess allows herself to imagine a life beyond these secrets. But when summer ends, so does their relationship — Dylan heads off to Canton College while Tess enrolls at the state university.

One love they can’t ignore…

Two years later, a scholarship brings Tess to Canton and back into Dylan’s life. Their attraction is as strong as ever, but Dylan has a girlfriend…who also happens to be Tess’s legitimate half-sister. Tess refuses to follow in her mother’s footsteps, which leaves her only one choice: break the rules she’s always followed, or allow Dylan to slip away for a second time.

…And only one chance to get things right

    I haven’t read many New Adult novels yet, but One and Only sounds like a really good read! So far, I think this and A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers are at the top of my NA TBR list. :)

    (Btw, why does all the job you took up sound so boring!? Haha especially the library one! But I’d love to try floral arrangement. Tried it once and it was really fun!)
