In about 12 hours from now, I will be making my departure into the real world, once again. The fall semester at the university starts tomorrow, and the struggle to gain back a tight grip on a busy life makes its way onto the to-do list. Being jobless for 5 months while having minimal income has definitely taken a toll on me, but that will be changing soon enough. I've reworked my resume and they'll start flying out all over the place by the end of this week.
Throughout the summer break, I told myself that I was going to get a lot accomplished, but things didn't exactly turn out that way. Of course, I worked on a lot of personal developments, projects, and just having a real vacation for the first time in a few years. I spent a lot of time time with friends and family and now it's time to get back to what needs to be done.
Financially, you can imagine what not having a job can do to a person. Thankfully, the little savings I put together stood strong. It's unfortunate that I wasn't able to do all the things that I wished to do, but that's life, and sometimes things just need to happen at their own time....
After talking to a few of my friends which came down to mixed results. Getting a part time job while in school can be beneficial and keep my pockets populated, but it could also possibly hurt my grades. Last semester, work got the worst of me and I suffered with some classes.
There is one last option. Advertising. Yes, some have told me that I can make a bit of cash from placing ads on my blog. This is something I am definitely considering if all else fails. That way, I will be motivated to keep my content flowing steadily, provide more tutorials, and grow the site large enough to make some kind of a profit.
If you think I should go with the blogging-as-a-job route, please let me know your thoughts. Either way, I'd love to hear what you have to say. Thanks!
