Well, it’s finally happened. We all knew this day was coming. It was only a Matter of Time.
Behold, Internet! I have made my decision!
Starting next week, I am officially back in the workforce!!
…as a self-employed independent contractor, database analyst flavor.
Which is a lot like not-really-employed, especially on credit applications. Which is fine by me, because frankly I don’t have a lot of use for the things anyway.
After a great deal of internal debate and quite a bit of resume sending and offer receiving, I finally settled on doing 1099 work for a few select clients. I’m starting out with very part-time work and will keep it low-key through the summer, then start building the business up as we move into the early fall and the kids go back to school.
I don’t expect to be making a ton of cash doing it, especially not at first – but over time, I expect I’ll be making some really good money. If I can build up enough business, I might be able to upgrade myself to truly excellent money.
But for now, I want to keep it strictly part-time. The girls have some day camps and we found a neat summer program for Captain Adventure, one with both typically developing and special needs kids. I’ll have about four hours a day with no Denizens at all in the Den.
How weird will that feel?!
I just hope I can use that time wisely, you know, like, working or some junk…and not on, say, hanging out on Ravelry pretending I’m going to knit one of those gorgeous things people keep posting pictures of over there (seriously, I was on there for two hours last night looking for my next project), or laughing at silly cat pictures.
