3 thoughts on “What Do you DO For Work”

  1. I do computer tutoring for senior citizens, but I do it informally right now. I’ve kind of accidentally discovered I’m really good at it, and enjoy the one-on-one tutoring with people who want to learn far more than I enjoyed my high-pressure IT job I had for 5 years. My “goal” is to actually turn my tutoring into a business that will support me financially, but without overcharging clients (many of whom are on a fixed income).

  2. I write for pay to get my monthly bills covered. THAT isn’t acceptable to people either. I’ve only brought up my blog (even though that’s not a pay thing for me) to two different people who have asked about what I’m ‘doing’ right now and they both (and both family members who love me, lol) dismissed it instantly.

    If I’m not back at a desk all day w/a window, a secretary, and a boss, I guess it’s not really a ‘real’ job, but I’ll tell you I work a lot harder for the pennies I get writing than I did when I was working out of the house. And I like it. I don’t like the pay, but I like freelancing. It’s empowering, frustrating, satisfying, gratifying, drives me crazy, fun to eek out my own pay.
