So I worked three days a week on average. I would like to work four days a week. But even then...it wouldn't be much. Also factor in that two of these days I traveled to Edinburgh so spent £50 total for those two round trips. I got £80 in compensation, though. Plus, I was paid for the time it took to get there and back.
But yeah...not good. How much would I make in London for ten days at minimum rate? £1320. Well, I guess it's about the same then. Can that be right? I averaged like £2000/month. Indeed, if it was less than that I was surprised.
There's also the transcripts. I did one last month but that was only £60. It was fairly short.
Hmm. I don't know. Well, I was only getting one day a week at that job in London by the end. So that wasn't sustainable. And apparently there's not a huge difference in what I'm getting paid. And I can try to organise things better so that I get four days a week. I could even work five if there's no transcripts. Plus, factor in the lower cost of living here.
Still...you look at what these people make in the US. A hundred thousand bucks and whatnot. It's kind of stupid to stay here. At that salary, I could pay this scam loan off in no time. Indeed, I can already pay it off with my savings. I mean, the loan is the only real issue with living in the US. And health care, I guess.
Man, it's been windy as shit all day. Is there some kind of tropical storm going on? I've never experienced these kinds of winds in the UK before. Not that I can see. Some "football" games cancelled. There was some hail/somewhat frozen rain when I went out today. But yeah, the wind is the issue. I've heard it blowing all day and here it is in the evening and it's still blowing. I went out and it's the sort where you feel you're going to suffocate and have to turn your head to breathe. I've experienced this in the US but not in the UK.
