To Everything Turn, Turn, Turn

I’ve been undergoing some changes lately. This summer I’ve lost my extra source of income as an ESL teacher at the local college in my town.

But I’ve found something interesting out of that.

After reading a post on LinkedIn I read about some Freelancing websites that seemed legitimate and safe. I started doing some research and I ended up joining elance.com.

At first I was a bit nervous applying for jobs. I looked to see which employers had a good reputation and which ones had confirmation of payment. I didn’t want to get stuck doing so much work and putting a lot of effort into something and then not get paid for it.

I am happy to report that I have completed 4 jobs for one employer quite successfully and they are planning to use my again. I also won a job creating articles based off of key words provided by the client and another one which is basically the same thing. I’ve also applied for a job I really want to get which would almost replace the income from teaching! It would be very nice to be able to do these things in the comfort of my home.

I have been noticing that my children are missing me and are acting out as such. I need to spend more time with them, but supporting them is also important. As my husband gets ready to change from his full-time job he’s had for about 8 years and head to College our income is going to drop considerably. We’re trying to pay off as much debt as we can before he stops work and he has been looking for jobs.

Sometimes I have to find the positive and I have been working really hard at that. I’m doing my best to be understanding and supportive.

So things are looking up!

My book, on the other hand, is going to start calling me and threatening me if I don’t pay attention to it. I haven’t touched it in sooooo long! I am hoping the spare/extra time I should get when classes end on the 28th will help with this.

Then I’ll need to full on manage my time better! I can do!

Right…?
