Since I went off the Geodon, I’ve signed up for a math class at the community college (for fun; I’ve always wanted to learn calculus and never got the chance) and submitted my resume to a local temp agency in hopes of finding a part-time job. If I wind up having to withdraw from the class, or I get fired, it’s okay. It’s trying that’s the important part.
Admittedly, the main reason for job-hunting is my teeth. I need $2400 in dental work, and am still paying off $2700 from earlier this year. Why Medicare doesn’t cover dental is beyond me… It’ll still take a while to get the money saved up. I’m only allowed to make $700 a month, and Social Security takes half of that because I’m on disability. But it’ll still be a little extra every month towards dental stuff. And it’ll be a job, because working will make me feel useful.
Ideally I’d like to work at the library, but their part-time jobs are 20 hours a week and that’s too much for me to handle. So I’m looking for back-office clerical work: data entry, filing, etc. Wish me luck!
