Work, Work, Work...

September 15th, 2018 at 07:02 am

In addition to the new teaching job, I got offered more responsibility with my editing job. I am adding an hourly position which will consume about 8 hours per week. I took this because it is interesting, and the teaching job could end at any point. However, I will have practically zero free time.

Since I want to keep saving more for retirement, replace my car and buy a home within the next two years, every extra dime will go to these goals.

After I get a couple paychecks, I will add the savings to my sidebar. I need to pay off this personal loan as well. If I pay as usual, it would be paid off near the end of February. At this point, I want it paid off no later than Thanksgiving.

    Oh my, while I understand your desire to fulfil all your financial goals, I hope you'll work out specific down time daily, after teaching a full time schedule plus the ridiculous amount of paperwork that accompanies that job. It's so easy to get sick with all the viruses and bacteria issues that flow through schools and student populations. I know I sound a little hysterical but the problem is unaddressed.

    I totally get why you want to do this. And hopefully working all this extra will be short term. Just don't burn yourself out. I'm glad that you have the "problem" of being in demand instead of worrying about when a job will come along. Good job on saving for your goals.
