So my new roommate and I were getting along well. She suggested i apply to be a substitute teacher in the district as she is a teacher. I go to orientation on Wednesday. I'll probably start subbing in September. I can work when i want and I can work a few days a month or all month if I want to. There's a need for subs daily and not enough available.
But I can't stay living where I am. I have to move. AGAIN.
Her dog and mine got into 2 fights which I jumped into and got bit on my hands both times by her dog. They are both too territorial.
I can't keep doing this. I thought I finally found a place I could stay. I'm staying til mid October bc I can't find another place right away and we are cool with each other but are keeping our dogs separate. It's only going yo work temporarily.
Then what? Hop to another disasterous roommate situation?
Bear with me on this next part.
So after 3 months as a sub, I would take in $120 per day which is about $100 after taxes. I could work 9 days a month without it affecting my benefits. I'd take home $900. And keep SSD.
If I live in my van again and board or put my dog in doggie daycare, it's $35 per day with taxes and gas. Even if I boarded or doggie daycare her for 12 days per month, I'd still bring in $480 for 9 days of work per month. Not great but not terrible either.
You'll probably say I'm better off finding a roommate. Read my past posts and you'll know why I disagree. If I can find a female roommate with an affordable place who allows dogs and doesn't have any, I'll consider it. You can see why my options are so limited.
I have no safety net other than SSD, no family I can trust, no significant other to support me, and I'm still disabled too much to work full time. I'm nervous about even working 9 days. I can't afford an apartment. I can apply for subsidized housing but the wait lists open up again in early September and I'll be waiting a year.
Obviously school is out in summer so I would leave Texas by April or May. You only need to work a few times a year to stay a sub in the system. Then by Septemberish next year I will have housing here.
I don't have many ppl I can talk about this with so I'm detailing it here. It would be a hassle but what is the alternative, go through another stressful roommate situation, hope I can even find a decent one?
Let me know your thoughts.
If for the next 6 months, you could only eat 4 foogd, what would you pick? I know pizza with lots of toppings would be one of mine; need to think on the other three.
