Things are finally looking up for me! I am EMPLOYED! Finally!
And I got a really great job that is perfect for me. All I do is sign addresses on contracts and mail them out! The person I work for likes to have addresses hand-written and just doesn't have the time to do them all. I get $2 for each one I do, and depending on the time of year, there can be hundreds of them. The max I can make in an hour is $24! I can't believe it! That's way more than all my friends make! But on average, I'm looking at $10(minimum wage)-$15 an hour which is still REALLY good to me.
The best part is that I work from home! I was SO terrified of having to get a customer service job. I am just NOT good with people. I get way too anxious. Especially working with people AND numbers. I have dyscalculia(the simple explaination is it's dyslexia with numbers) and numbers just make me a wreck when I'm under pressure to use them correctly and quickly(like handing out change and such. I know I can do it, but it's the fear of making a mistake that gets me. Many of my friends have had to go through customers calling them stupid for making a mistake with change, and I'm especially sensitive to being called that when it refers to my problems with numbers because of how I've struggled with them all my life.) I'm just really excited about this. It's a great oppurtunity and I'm glad I got it! I start next week and I'm actually really looking forward to it!
So expect a lot of plush from me in the coming months. Now that I have a job, I can start buying minky like I've wanted to. I don't think I've mentioned it here, but I did get my embroidery machine for Christmas, so I really can start to make things that look nice.
I've been really hating all my plush lately because of the materials they're made from, so I'm hoping using better material will fix that!
