Dreaming of Green

I know that as soon as I type this and see it in "print," I will say to myself, "What were you thinking," but I'm seriously weighing my options and thinking of getting a third job. Now, I haven't had three jobs since probably two years ago, where I worked a side job for myself. It didn't last long, but it netted me a couple extra hundred bucks and helped my savings account. Other than that, the tri-arena of work really hasn't been tested since my college days. I worked retail and worked for a doctor's office where I could make my own hours. With a full load of courses, that office job was a God send. I tried to work a third retail job, but it was impossible to get my managers to schedule around each other. I really think I could do it again though. My second part-time job has no flexibility to the scheduling. I have had the same shifts now going on either five or six weeks. With hours like that, I could easily fit something else into the schedule.

I've tossed this idea around some folks here, and I keep hearing, "Don't get burn out." But what's an extra 10 or 15 hours, really? I begged for work when I was 15. I could not wait to get a job. After graduating college, I took my senior trip, and I was working full time by the end of May. I really don't think I would know what to do if I couldn't or didn't work. I tend to get greedy when I look at my savings account. I just start getting competitive with it. In high school, I loaned money out once, and I kind of got the feeling I would have been a great loan shark, except for that whole thing about taking people out when they don't pay you back on time. I was kind of missing that crucial step in the plan.

I'm crazy, right?

Of course you're crazy. That's one of the things I like about you.

A third job? Are things that hard in Atlanta, or are do you just have financial security issues? Honestly, I admire your drive---especially given that you're a Taurus.

If you work all the damned time, you'll have little time to meet Mr. Right. Of course, I could be Mr. Wrong about that. Hell, love happens when and where it will.

Things aren't that hard here, but the cost of living is definitely higher. More so if you are a Taurus admiring the finer things in life.

I won't be working all the time. Maybe 60 hours between all three jobs, if I do indeed get the third gig. Besides, working a third job only means that I meet more people...like Mr. Right (For Now).

hmmmh...the ox IS a great and hard worker. Just don't forget to eat the best of the best hay and lay the best of the best straw!
