I am starting to realize (with three weeks of school left) that I'm not quite sure how I'm going to earn a living next year.
I've got some wiseGEEK work, and hopefully that will continue and grow. But there's no guarantee of either.
I can sub at my school and other schools where I know the kids, but that is provided my district doesn't mess things up with the paperwork - it could take a while to figure out and they won't let me start the process until August.
I can tutor but I have to build up clientele so I have no idea how often/how much I can make from that.
Lindsay thinks I can teach knitting - I'm not entirely sure I'm good enough for that.
I can teach Spanish but so can a whole lot of native speakers.
I now have editing skills, but again, no clientele.
I still haven't figured out a way to get paid for blogging.
And I will have to pay for health insurance and save my own money for taxes.
I have until September to figure all this out because (thank God!) I did the deferred payment plan so I still get paid in July and August. However, that's not that far away!
