Talk about learning the skills that could save your life and you would come up with a list of as many as you can from martial arts to digging a trench.
Let’s face it, there have been many times many of us have thought of learning something that could be of help when we don’t have degrees to flash and energy to brag about how amazing we are (that won’t earn you bucks anyway!).
Bookbinding has been a popular skill lately and there are courses and tutorials helping individuals (especially students who aspire to earn the extra bucks they always need to spend here and there) to master the skill, use it and flaunt it!
1. You Can Make DIY Notebooks for Yourself or Your Friends (Always a Good Option for a Present)
Too confused about what to gift to your best pals? The fancy notebooks wouldn’t take time if you have the creative flare in yourself and also the super skill of bookbinding. The DYI notebooks not only are cool to have but also show how much effort you have pooled in.
2. You Can Make Money out of It (DIY Goods are Very Popular Now)
The bookbinding skill actually helps in starting up a business of your own and wouldn’t eat up much of your time if you’re a student.
3. You Can Fix up Some Old Books You Have in the Library
The library has its own fragrance, the rich one filled with history and volumes of books dating centuries behind. That exactly is the reason it has the distinctive smell, the old books! And they need a helping hand in binding them, so move ahead in the direction and be the hero.
4. You Can Make Your Own Books
Have you ever thought of compiling all the bedtime stories you’ve created in your head when mom was too busy? Well, there you go, pen them down, print them out and with the newfound skill of bookbinding, you would be able to have your own copies of books. What joy it is to see the intellectual within you making its mark on the papers!
5. You Can Earn Some Extra Cash by Working at Your Local Publishing House
The local publishing house would always be in need for someone enthusiastic. So if that is the case, make a trip to the publishing house and offer your favors (of course in exchange of money – there’s no free lunch or bookbinding). And the perks also involve going through a lot of scripts and getting ahead with your own stories.
Well, this is interesting, don’t you think so? If you are a college student and have plenty of free time, why not use it to upgrade your skills, say, in bookbinding? You’ve seen what you can do with it. So, stop wasting your time on FB or Twitter and do something useful!
