I haven’t been writing much since I returned from Thailand, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy. In the last month & a half, I’ve gotten 3 part-time jobs. My first job is to teach English twice a week for a local community college. That started 2 weeks ago. My second job is to score essays for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Today was my first day. This is a work-at-home job, but I have scheduled hours when I have to be online scoring essays. My TOEFL job is highly secretive, so I can’t write much about it. The only thing I’ll say is that it takes a lot of concentration and it makes my brain hurt a little. I’m hoping it will be easier tomorrow.
In case you’re wondering about job #3, it’s a job correlating educational materials to state educational standards for a small company in Phoenix. I think it will be interesting work. I’m excited to start; I just haven’t been given any assignments yet.
