considering a PT job

January 6th, 2007 at 05:10 pm

Thank you for your thoughts and advice on my family's financial situation. Keep it coming, if you think of anything more. I am really not sure how they are going to do this. I just edited a letter from my sister to send to her financial aid office, asking for more help...hope it comes through. Your comments have really been helpful.

I'm considering getting a part-time job to help out my family. There are lots of stores nearby, including Michaels and Barnes and Noble. However, retail really doesn't pay that well. How does one come across freelance writing/editing jobs? What other things could I do that would pay a bit more than retail?(Besides standing on the corner of Hennepin Avenue, of course) Wink

We just picked up a Yucatan travel guide a couple of days ago, but I don't really feel good about taking an expensive trip to Mexico at this point. Maybe it would be better to forego the pricey island getaway and find something cheaper around Cancun or Tulum. I still really want to go, but am feeling guilty. SO and I need to discuss this further. I don't feel good about moving away, either. It's amazing how one little incident can change perspective on everything.

I'm so glad it's the weekend!!

    I'm glad that you're so willing to help your father out.

    Have you talked to him yet? If not, I think you should coordinate with him about the overall financial strategy.

    Thanks, but these are not people you coordinate an overall financial strategy with. It's not just him I am helping out - it's my mom, too. Besides, it's MY part-time job. My intention is to put more into my family savings account, so the money is there to help them when/if they need it.

    Kashi, don't stop living your life just because something bad has happened in their lives. You and your guy have worked hard to save for this vacation and you deserve it. Don't give it up without some really hard thinking on the matter. Maybe its not the best time to move away but if you give up both things, you may end up resenting your parents down the road. You can still help them without giving up everything for them.
