Well I did it- I applied to teach a course at a local university.
I wasn't sure if I was actually going to apply. Summers are great for overtime in my emerg department, and I also want to spend some time enjoying the outdoors, which I didn't do much of last summer because of my broken knee.
But I figure even if I did teach the commitment would be approximately 10 hours a week, and the money I'd make would go straight to my student loans. No one really WANTS to pay off their student loans, but the sooner I do, the better I'd feel about money.
In case you are wondering, I would also continue to work full time at my regular job.
Speaking of which, I may have finished my last mentored shift today. Although I'm not sure as things are wonky in the scheduling department, technically my new contract starts on January 5th. I don't work again until the 6th, so I'll let you know whether I will be on my own or not.
Hope you had a happy New Year!
