Obviously I'm crazy...

I'm thinking of adding another part-time job to my plate. My plate currently being: I have 3 weeks until the end of this semester, I work about 15 hours a week at Wal-Mart and then I have open availability over Christmas for two weeks and next semester I'll be taking five courses (Criminal, Estates, Client Relations, English Gen Ed, & Creditor's Rights), and continuing to work at the grand old Wally-World, along with this job.

Yep, I know, I'm now certifiable.

BUT, in my defense, this is a pretty sweet job - a position as a part-time law clerk. In a firm that deals mostly with Landlord & Tenant issues. I KNOW. And he wants someone full(?)time for the summer as well as continuing back to part-time for next fall.

I was starting to panic about what to do about this summer. This will be the first summer in about 2 years I won't be attending school/relying on OSAP, and I just KNEW I would hate myself if I had to work full-time where I am now. Honestly, it's okay as a part-time job, 2-3 days a week, but

Oh hell no.

But now! It seems as though my problems are three steps closer to solving themselves. Cross your fingers for me - interview is Tuesday at 10!

Good luck! If it gets too much, you could always ditch the wally world job :) sounds like the new job is a great opportunity!

You never know what you're capable of until you try. I know this because my husband is going to school full-time (5 courses this semester) and working 25 hours a week. In addition to being a wonderful father to our 3 children (6 and under). If you would have asked me if this was humanly possible before we tried, I'd have said "no way", but now I know it can be. We took on the endevour agreeing that if it got too crazy, it was over. I'd never want to live this way for more than just a temporary period but for 18 months, sure. Of course he has super-wife to swoop in and pick up the slack for his home-life (not that I'm tootin' my own horn. ROFL) so one definitely has to have a huge support system to be that busy. I'd say go for it -- if it doesn't work out, you can quit. GL!
