Maybe you can find something like that.

Yeah, and she quits because she sees it's completely trashed the souls of all of her coworkers.

There is so much good writers-writing-about-money, but personally I can never get this one out of my head:

http://www.theawl.com/2010/08/seven-years-as-a-freelance-writer-or-how-to-make-vitamin-soup

>Freelancing is that remarkable stretch from February to December 2009, where I wrote entire features… using only my phone, a first-generation iPhone jailbroken for T-mobile, bought for $100 from a friend at Mac Week. That was because my computer had broken and I couldn't afford a replacement.

That image more than anything stuck with me, and sure enough, I wound up there eventually with a 4S I bought for $150 with money from a medical trial and never hooked up to a cellular network.

Later, I left the iPhone in a cab I had to take (only as far as the subway) to make it on time to a brotberuf that laid me off suddenly two weeks later. Still hadn't fixed the computer, so I had to quickly hustle up the money for parts to fix it.

I have so much to say about all this, but I have to run now. I need to buy a replacement microphone for that computer for a call later.

>>8632132
Almost always. Some people, mostly people whose work is amenable to market pace, make a living doing their thing. I think I might be able to get there, but I need to up my work tempo on critical pieces and/or hustle up a good listicile or recap gig or something.

When you make no money, you dont buy expensive things anon. You are forever destined to buy wal-mart clothes, or be homeless. Then again, homeless people ARE pretty /fa/
>>
>>8634433
NYC is not /fa/ its dirty and overpopulates
>>
>>8634513
OP here, bullshit they are. I live in NYC too- fortunately I have a roommate so my rent is half of what it could be. Homeless people are NOT /fa/. They wear terrible baggy clothes, they can't take care of their own hygiene, some are diabetic so their legs and skin are being ruined, and they are poor, miserable folk.

I was once on the R Train, in a car where a homeless man was sleeping. He got up, walked to an empty bench, pulled down his pants, and pissed all over it. Everyone screamed in terror, except me, who fortunately was far away from the stream. Nothing got on me, but the memory remains.

I have a lot of love for homeless people, who are in a very bad situation often through no fault of their own. But they're not /fa/.

> this
I have a very legitime job on top too....

I'm a firefighter in the greater los angeles area. I sell coke and mdma and some other stuff sometimes if I get it. I also have some friends that grey area legal things to get my clothes nearly half off. That's how I was able to afford my geos and balmain jeans.

I'm saving up a good lump sum and I'm going to try to make a living in entertainment. I'm living in the world capital and it's always been my dream. I think I'm pretty interesting too. Also I have a degree. Ask me anything I can't sleep

> I'm 100% serious

I'm 24. I've got 8.5k put away right now and a paid off 2009 ford ranger. The only real thing that scares me is my student loans aren't even close to paid yet.
>>
>>8636149

You're a firefighter? What did you get your degree in?

I thought of firefighters being an old boys club...do you fit in well? I can imagine a firefighter also rocking geos lol
>>
>>8636146
Do you at least do something cool, like perpetuate a mindless, mostly-pointless bureaucracy? Or do you work in a shit field like intelligence?
>>
>>8636173
I work in passports and citizenship so it's kind of cool. Would like to work my way into something a bit more interesting though.
>>
>>8636161
My degree is in political sciene. I know I know it's a shit degree. But I appreciate everything I've learned from it. I experimented with psychedelics in college and had a lot of casual sex, including a moment where I was dating two girls who were roommates at once (still talk sometimes)

Anyways, right after college I realized I wanted to do something in entertainment (when I first went to college I wanted to be a military officer, I crineed at memories of myself from this time).

My dad has been a firefighter at a dept right outside my hometown in for many years, holds rank, good rep, etc. He said that the city (different dept.) Was hiring. I applied cause fuck it, and the fit was perfect. Got the job mostly cause I'm really good at talking and cause my dad. College didn't hurt either.

Anyways, I just grinder hard for a year and a half there, got my paramedic asap like right after I got hired they let me in the program. The whole time I just applied to every station that was hiring in greater LA. Eventually got hired.

I stopped smoking weed after college, but still did coke on weekends and molly for occasions, plus the occasional psyche trip. Kinda hooked people up but didn't start really selling till I got out here.
>>
>>8636161
As to fitting in, yeah I fit in well. Firefighters tend to be more conservative, I actually am marxist/anarchist if anything, but I accept the system for what it is.

They just think I'm liberal but I'm a real guys guy. I love sports and hip hop, and I drink so it's cool. Kinda lonely for me as I have to hide my real self at work and I don't actually have to many friends outside work now.
I have an Adderall prescription and I write a lot on my days off. I also am involved with border angels and go help out once a month in San diego.
It's not all bad, but I miss being around a lot of pretty girls all the time like in college. Now I'm around them but have no means of meeting them lol

public library? what does it take to get a job there?
>>
I'm a photographer.
>>
>>8639326

It's a library at my university. The way that it works is that the university budgets money as "student assistance", but rather than just giving it away they use a large amount of it as pay for student employees.

In order to qualify to work in my university's library system as a student employee you must:

A) Be a student at the university

B) Have enough courses to be considered a full time student.

Beyond this, it depends which section you are working in. You may need to be familiar with mapping technology, or know another language (I am bilingual), or have knowledge related to a specific field (Music, Law, Earth Sciences, etc...).

The interview process is also a bit weird, I had to do a test wherein I analyzed an invoice and marked out what the currencies were, the parties involved, and other little things.

As for a public library, I would not hold your breath. They usually pay minimum wage and fill as many job positions as possible with volunteers to keep costs down. The only way to get a really decent job at one is to get a Master's degree in Information Science or Library Science and apply as a librarian.
