Downsized...

So, girlies, just found out that I'm getting canned (along with all the other freelancers) from my job. Wednesday is my last day.

Looks like I'll be taking a break from dating for a while--it's too expensive being single!

Any ideas for how to make a quick buck? Unfortunately my class schedule is pretty rigid, and I don't think I'll be able to find a freelance gig that is that flexible...

Oh wow..I'm so sorry. I've been there. I'm sorry. Hmmm make a quick buck? After I was let go I found an assload of stuff that I didn't need anymore and sold it on Ebay. You'd be surprised at how much junk one can have.

I'm really sorry Kristin. I know this was the best possible situation for your class schedule.

Bartending! It's my lastest add-on money maker. If you are cute, you can clean up. Go for it!

If you set up paypal on this site I'll send you $10 so you can get a drink this weekend. Other than that phone sex opperators make good money and they have flexible work hours.

That's sweet, threecharlie. But I'm not desperate yet. I'll let you know, though!

As for the bartending, joy, it's something I've thought about--but it's super hard to get into here. Any ideas?

Sorry to hear about loosing the job Kristin, I've been there myself. Why don't you try a temp agency, like Manpower, or something similar? They have jobs to suit almost any schedule, and it can keep the wolves at bay... good luck!

Focus groups are a quick way to make a buck. I look for them on craigslist.

Oh my ... canned?? Are you serious? And they only gave you a 2-day notice?! This is terrible. :(

Quick money? Let's see ... I tried both the bartending thing and the temp stuff when I needed extra cash. I've never done Ebay, but I know a few people who totally cleaned house and raked in the cash doing it.

It probably sounds trite, but seriously, good luck. Losing a job sucks ...

Sorry to hear about the downsizing Kristin... but don't be knocking phone sex chica.
I did that for about 6 months between theatre gigs.
Not only does it pay better than a retail job (no set up, clean up, stocking shelves), I have great stories and it has lead to 2 potential writing gigs and a teaching gig ("phone sex for fun").

Phone Sex? How does one get into that?

I'm really wondering if I can get into that S&M gig from a few months back. But they never contacted me.....

Woo hoo! My idea was the big winner!

Kristin.. I'll keep you posted on when I'll be teaching "Phone Sex for Fun and Profit".

Well, there's no way I can afford to pay for the class right now...
