linguistceviri Yep, definitely.
I just finished grad school in May, and after taking a vacation in the summer, I sat down behind my computer and decided I was a freelance translator. But...I was earning about ~200 USD a month doing that, and my expenses were, oh, I dunno, eight times that! So I needed something part-time to pay the bills until things got started in earnest with my translation business.
Now that I've moved and my expenses are way lower [edit: and I'm earning way more translating!], I'm looking for an even smaller part-time commitment. I hope that in 8-10 months I won't need another job at all!
It's obviously all based on circumstances.
Just figured others might have been in the same boat as me at some point, so I was curious to see if anyone had held any fun/interesting jobs!
