I had an epiphany of sorts when I started considering a part-time job: It’s very difficult to schedule around my full-time job. My colleagues who moonlight set their own hours; e.g. driving for UBER, making items they sell online, housecleaning, etc.
I decided to wait until a couple of months have passed at The Factory. Then I can re-assess whether I truly need additional income. And whether I’ll have weekends free to do so. (At the moment, no. The only reason I’m not typing away at yet another web-based tool is that I’m awaiting a reply to an e-mail I sent an administrator; re: log-in problems.)
In the meantime, I began to fill in my schedule with writing, exercise, and housekeeping. Before long, I discovered that the hours dedicated to my health regimen – from preparing (and freezing) nutritious meals to swimming – will take 10-15 hours.
There’s a part-time job!
