I want a fun hobby job. And I need your help. I understand that a whole 2 ½ people read this but I’m hoping those 2 ½ come through and I get their opinion 🙂
Rules for my hobby job:
1. It must be fun
2. Ability to create my own schedule
3. Little to no paperwork
4. Small amount of schooling
This isn’t overly demanding, right? 🙂 But my current job is none of the above with the exception of number 1. I laugh every single day. I can’t imagine leaving teaching any time soon. However, I realized today that I have never even thought about making money any other way besides teaching. Growing up, it was the only thing I ever wanted to be and now I have my dream job (just not my dream paycheck 🙂) Eventually, I would like to have babies and have the option to stay home/create my own schedule. You can see how these rules conflict with teaching. And here lies my dilemma.
Here are the three options I have floating in my head:
-Something I have always been interested in
-Free haircuts and color? Yes, please
-A fun way to be artistic
-Long time in school
-and the lots of $$$ it would cost to be in school
2. Zumba Instructor
-I heart shakin my booty and getting my groove thing on (see earlier post dedicated entirely to Zumba)
-One 8 hour day and 225 dollars later, you are certified
-I get to exercise and get paid at the same time!
-It is the only exercise I have willingly stuck with for over a year and still genuinely enjoy
-I may or may not have to pay 30 bucks a month to remain certified?
-I not only have to be confident in my dancing ability, I need to be confident in my teaching abilities (but then again, I teach 3-5 year olds language, so really. How hard can it be to teach a bunch of 20-70 somethings how to dance?)
-Who doesn’t want to take pictures of pretty things and people? So creative and artsy! I love capturing beauty in life!
– I don’t care to get into weddings. Just senior pictures, preggo pictures, etc.
– If I turned out to be a natural, no schooling needed!
-I have ZERO experience and no camera. And that costs mucho dinero. (Although I will have a big girl camera at some point in the next few years. I like taking pictures too much).
-I may or may not have an artistic eye for people.
-Everyone and their uncle is trying to become a photographer nowadays.
4. Other ??
Are there any other options? I know. I’m being picky.I was thinking blogger but then realized I need to write more than, oh you know, once every couple months to make money. Oh! I should also mention this. Nobody get too excited. No baby plans for a couple years (at least that’s our plan for right now), but I thought I would get the ball rolling on this whole fun hobby job and be pretty solid by the time we enter “the baby phase” of life. It is kind of exciting to think I might be able to get into something else I truly enjoy.
Pretty much it boils down to this. I am still an eight-year old girl who is dreaming about what they want to be when they grow up.
And now I need the older, bigger kids help.
