My co-worker says there are pros and cons to this job for every season.

I am learning them. For example.

Summer Con:

Constant threat of being fired due to not meeting weekly billable expectations due to clients not showing up for reasons that are largely out of our control, as is the nature of the beast, I suppose, when providing free therapy to families who did not ask for it.

Summer Pro:

Large gaping holes in my schedule during which I can go home and experiment with various mani/pedi techniques.
