I'm afraid I'm being sucked back in...

I received an email today from a woman from the afterschool program that I worked for last school year. She wanted to let me know that they look forward to working with me again this new school year, etc... This seriously has been one of the things I've been thinking about when thinking about changing schools. This year I will probably be making $75 per hour to be the site coordinator, which is nothing to sneeze at. There's no way I'd be able to find another part-time job for that kind of pay. Hell, is four hours a week even part-time?

I don't make near that amount at the bar, either, unfortunately. Yeah, it seems like I've been making great money this summer (I have about 5 1/2 months tuition saved up. Yay!) but when you consider the hours I've been putting in, it's not so great. On average, I put in at least 10 hours, minimum, each night that I work, and some nights it's closer to 12. So, coming home with $150 doesn't sound so hot now, does it? Not to mention that ALL of those hours are spent on my feet. And, the commute is about an hour total each night. OK, I certainly don't want to sound like I'm bitching about working at the bar. I'm really not, I'm just sayin' - it ain't easy!

So, my point is, this position is definitely one reason to stay put at the Hell-Hole. There are a few more, but I'm too tired to go into it right now. This email I received today is just one more thing to throw into the mix. I'll keep you posted....

Somebody has some important things to think about.....you mentioned Hell Hole....I don't know where that is, but if you refer to a place as that, you should avoid it.
Life is too short to be miserable. (I say this often)
Really, do what makes you happy.
