I Need a Second Job

I took this great job at the dance space, and I am loving it. However, I only get paid to work 30 hours a week (so, 4 days at 7.5 hours a day) with no health insurance.

In order to afford my health insurance,  I need to bring in $650 additional after tax dollars each month. I have four weekdays and all my weekends to work these hours–I am thinking that 10-12 hours a week bringing in $150-$200 would suffice.

Obviously, a work-from home type of job, maybe doing grant writing or some other kind of technical writing would be ideal. I could do that work at home, at night, on Sunday mornings whenever. But those kinds of job are not easy to get. I spent 10 months trying to get one or two. I managed to Professionally Watch Baseball, but that is seasonal work. I could babysit, too. I would happily edit kid’s college essays.

I keep thinking that it might be fun and nice to work at the wine shop around the corner from my house, or at the bookstore. But it has been 11.5 years since I worked in retail, which is a long time. I fear I am not difident enough to work in Brooklyn retail, nor thin enough, nor do I have my nose ring any longer.

As you know, the only thing I won’t do is cold calling (sorry BAM subscriber ticketing phone bank job!). But what do you think I could do?

This situation needs to be remedied pretty quickly. I love my health insurance. And since this is the year of living SANS CREDIT CARDS (more on this futurely), we need to get this sorted out!
