Here’s one of those exciting times when my screw-up might result in your benefit.
A week or so ago, I ordered what I thought was one copy of Alexander Chee’s Edinburgh. Apparently, I must have accidentally put it in the virtual shopping cart twice because I ended up receiving two copies. It wasn’t luck, though. I went back and checked my receipt. Oops!
Anyhow, I’m only about half-way through the novel, but I’m enjoying it. I think the two words I’d use to describe it are “beautiful” and “devastating.” Perhaps, thinking about the way part two begins, I might also add, “surprising.” I’m confident this is one I’ll end up recommending, so rather than hold on to the second copy, I’d like to offer it up as a giveaway. YAHOO!
Also, I’m looking for a second job and need some help.
Student loan debt is killing me, and I’m eager to get out of this hole. So, rather than spending twenty years paying the minimum, I’m trying to find a second job whose income I can use to pay directly toward the student loans and get it taken care of in half the time. I haven’t been having much luck, though, so if you happen to know of anything, please get in touch!
I’m looking for full-time or part-time, and it likely needs to be fully remote/from home. I’m not sure what an academic is qualified for these days, but I was thinking along the lines of general tech support, call center/customer service, proofreading or editing, data entry, etc.
I’m not particularly interested in tutoring or teaching since I do that full time already.
Thanks for any leads!
