Got smart…am typing this in Gmail, to be copied into 43t. I’m bored out of my mind at work this week, and boredom often begets innovation.
This goal is about to get much harder. Or maybe easier. Big changes going on here.
First off, I have a new job starting January 3. Same company, different department. More money for less work…it was a no-brainer. Well, it was once I asked for and was denied permission to work from home. Still pissed about that. After all this time, and all I’ve done for them. But anyway. (Which is why I’m bored at work…I’m between jobs, and have no PTO. I have to be here, but have nothing to do.)
Then last week, I applied for an editing job – local, but allows telecommuting. No word yet, because of the holidays, but I think the interview went well…and I never think that. The catch is it’s part time. No idea what it pays, or what (if any) benefits are included. Right now, I’m thinking if it pays half or less of what I make now, I’ll do both jobs for a while until I get my debt paid off, then transition to straight telecommuting. If it pays more, particularly if it includes affordable insurance, I’ll branch out on my own and see if I can’t make this freelance biz more viable. Either way, the months ahead look stressful and scary. But as I was sobbing my way to work a few weeks ago, I realized that nothing is as stressful and scary as the thought of missing A’s childhood.
I’ve also applied for an assortment of other jobs, of course. My first choice is to work from home, but if that’s not an option, I’m going to sell my time away from A to the highest bidder.
So…more updates to come! (In the meantime, someone really needs to get an Android 43t app together. Pretty please. :)
