I've had a lot of transcripts so that helped. Let's see...yeah, over £1000 in transcripts.
So still, £2500 from just going to work is pretty good. I've been doing more work for this other guy who pays more. Although, I realised that he hasn't been paying me for travel because I set up the spreadsheet wrong. So this month, I billed him for the shortfall from previous months. He must have known. It was only £90 that he owes anyway.
Also, I've been doing jobs further away so that helps. The further I have to travel, the more I charge.
And even the transcripts, I don't like doing them but they're usually pretty painless. I never work on them more than four hours a day. And that's just on the days that I have off from work. On days when I'm working, I never work on them for more than an hour. I'd just rather not do them at all but...for an extra £1000...that's pretty significant. I could do stuff with £1000.
Think of other jobs that I've had where people would beg to work more hours just to make a bit more money. I mean...let's say they're making $15/hour. Overtime would be...let's say $22.50. To get an additional £1000 in a month, they'd have to work another....that's $1300...about 60 hours. Another 60 hours a week to make that. There's no way I worked 60 hours on these transcripts. It was maybe 20. Even that's probably too high.
How much would this week in India be? About £2000, I figure. Hm. It just doesn't seem worth it. Go all the way to India for £2000?
The money is there for the taking but I just don't want it. What am I doing with this money? It just goes in the bank. And I've been at £20,000 forever. I don't seem to be making more money. So where is it going? I should check my bank statements. Actually, I should probably be at about £22,000 now. I paid those taxes recently but also I got paid recently. Then this next £3500 should bring me to £25,000.
Still, a graph would be useful. I'm going to make a graph. But not now. It's time for bed.
