So I’ve got a job interview tomorrow, which is cool because I just found out the job existed this morning. They wanted me to come in today, but it was going to be at 5 and I had to pick up my son from daycare. The job itself is kinda neat though.
It’s spraying lawns for mosquitos and ticks. On its own that isn’t exciting, but it’s a seasonal job...8-9 months a year. During those 8-9 months it’s a lot of hours, but at the end you get laid off and either collect unemployment or get a seasonal gig until it starts back up. He said half he job is driving, which is cool because that means half the job I don’t consider work.
Is it a ton of money? No, not in the grand scheme of things. But it’s 50% more in 3/4 of a year than I make in a full year right now, so that’s a definite improvement. It’s enough to let my wife quit her job and go back to school, which is what she wants, which is therefore what I want.
I figure I can supplement that with a seasonal gig at UPS or FedEx, keep the money coming in. Or I’ll just take a few months off and be a fat sack of fat, whatever.
So hopefully it’s cool and hopefully I get it. I’d love to quit my job and start this one before I take the family to Seattle in late September, but we’ll see.
