I own a dance academy and instruct there but technically it is "unpaid" as we have not turned a profit yet.

Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013.   If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!

I always had. Then I went through a four month dry spell where I wasn't making enough. I was freaking.
But as of yesterday and the day before- that has passed. I can't go into detail since it's a public forum, but you'd s*** yourself.

Paginator.

Well, I'm supposed to be a newspaper layout editor/designer. But these days, policy has pretty much dumbed down my position so much I could have done this job straight out of high school.

research assistant for the summer
fulltime student, and with the grants I recieve, it is a paid for position, kind of. I don't make enough to support us, but between my fulltime status, dh's fulltime status, dh's parttime job, and a little help from the govt for food and medical, we do okay
