Yep, sounds good to me. As long as I have every other day off…
I used to love working like that. :(

saturdays and sundays and (almost)all american national holidays. depends on your location at the time of said national holidays. and the occasional birthday, but i've spent my birthdays places where i can't take days off.

House wives are rare creatures these days. Not because it's wrong, but the cost of living is so high in most places it's almost impractical to do so.


I've never thought of housewives as rare creatures, or myself as one. (o_O) But I understand the reasons why.

I didn't try to become one when I was in school, it just happened. I hold a B.A. in both Cultural Anthropology and Japanese language and culture studies from a big ten university. Comics have been my hobby since 7th grade. I hope one day to be a published writer/illustrator. (^_~)v

You sound frighteningly like someone I know, only she isn't married *L*

I don't know if that is a good or bad thing since you used the word “frightening”. :P

I work part time in a Pizza Restaurant/Ice Cream Parlor/ Bar. I spend thirty five hours a week(average) doing this. Lots of cute servers to observe and the pay and tips are good. I also do some graphic Design when something falls into my lap…assuming I am not being lazy and putting it off till the end of summer…

I am a Referee, and am about to do some part time modeling(not real modeling, oil painting modeling for head studies). Reffing sucks. The pay is good, but dealing with the parents that hate your guts, the jerky athletes(or stupid athletes) and the mean coaches makes it suck. But the pay and the occasional nice and civilized human being makes it doable.

Erm, I'm a full-time college student. Also I do illustrations for websites and pamphlets and stuff, some tutoring (English), and I'm an actress but I'm not working on anything right now (still get residuals, though). In the past I've worked in a comic book store and before that as a gopher in an architectural firm. The illustrating has made me the most money by far, though work is far between. I don't have a lot of time for much else, though. Money is starting to get tight so I guess I'll have to figure something else out. Part-timer at starbucks anyone?

I'm a primary school teacher fronting a grade three/four class. They keep me young and on my toes and don't mess up too much because they recognise when they're on a good thing.
Remember when you were a kid and the world held magic the grown ups never knew.

I design book covers at a publishing company. It's the first “artsy” job I've had, as opposed to all my other jobs of answering phones or lifting boxes or tending to grumpy customers. I love it.

I have a crappy job in customer service for Blue Cross and Blue shield telling doctors offices why their patients medical claims are denied. It sucks but I slack off so it all good.

I'm a referee too (basketball) and I know how it feels. although I do get some pretty good pay at some of the rich private schools. I get $20 a game and I do about four games. I also get $10 a game at other local stadiums though. I'm only sixteen so it's a good start.

Apart from that, I'm also a part-time fish. The pay is pretty good too. 10 cans of fish food an hour.

BA-DUM PISH!!

I'm currently not working since I'm studying, but when I do work I'm a freelance (some read that as “out of work”, but I do book several jobs at several newspapers) illustrator and part time sushi waitress (hell yeah! best job ever - I get to eat my weight in cheesecake)

I still have time to ponder about my profession, though. I'm a language student as well as go to animation school

I just started a new ‘job’, demonstrating Wacom Cintiqs!

What fun. I love watching other artist's eyes light up when they see one in action and discover the unlimited possibilities the Cintiqs offer.

Ah-Hahahahaha

No wonder all your recent posts were sounding like Cintiq ads. lol!
Careful of that man. It's rather disingenuous and could border on the spammy.
