I just had an epiphany yesterday. Or something like it. (Okay…so it was probably just a realisation)
I realise that by having 2 part-time jobs instead of 1 full-time job, I actually end up working a lot more. Don’t understand? Well, the amount of work I try and do at each part-time job is equivalent to a full-time job each!
Don’t get me wrong — I love my jobs and for the life of me cannot decide which one I’d choose if for some reason I got offered them full-time. My pay scale at the school is higher but the work is not as challenging as the severe cases I have to refer externally due to time constraints. Pay scale at the second job is less but the work is challenging and I’m learning everyday.
Hmm…maybe two part-times is the way to go at the moment.
And then, in a year or so, who knows? Maybe something else will come up and I’ll just know.
Until then, I’ll just continue working like a dog — two full-time equivalent jobs for the pay of one.
Until next time,
