So I started a new job in my area. Yes, pretty much a third or fourth job. Something akin to Instacart and UberEats. I’m still working my own schedule, and making money on my own time.
I’m really enjoying this independence thing! My own apartment, my own job, my own money, and living with My Love. It’s wonderful. It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to say, “Hey, I’m dealing with a disability, but i’ve got a hold on it. I’m not going anywhere. I’ll never let it have power over me!”. It’s beautiful, it really is.
Glad to have a routine, too. Something I outlined in my book. Check it out sometime!
I’m thinking, maybe, a volume 2? Or a second edition? We will see.
Stay tuned to all the great things happening! Sometimes there is sadness, though, yes it happens! Enjoy the picture of me and My Love for now!
Only received 1 order in my zone all week (well, 2, but the second order was canceled due to app issues).
It actually is fun doing it. It’s like a game, since it tests your speed grocery shopping.
The app goes off 30 minutes before your shift starts. Then once your shift starts it’s actively looking for orders. You’re basically on-call the whole shift.
I think I will stick with this for awhile and see how the next couple of weeks go before I check in again about it. So wish me luck with getting orders. I just found out yesterday that my zone is new, which is why I haven’t been getting many just yet.
The great thing is, I can do this to supplement the income I have, and it’s a great job to start out with if you have a disability (physical or mental), and you want to start slow or keep a slightly slower pace. (Bonus points if you are already a fast worker to begin with).
Yep. Second day working for Instacart, and it’s been a complete bust both days.
No batches, no orders = No work. Period. For two days.
The day started with it reminding me about shift, 30 minutes before it started. It actively looks for orders the whole shift. So you don’t have to. Unfortunately, there’s no hotspots in my area where orders are more or less. I talked to customer support and I learned it’s just my area. Although, they really aren’t much help.
I really want this to work out. I do have high hopes and high expectations, because it’s just the perfect job (working from my phone all day). We will see, though. I will give it a week, maybe two, and reevaluate it. Or perhaps, just have it as a side “side” job.
I’m really racking it in with good news. It literally just keeps coming, and it’s all so exciting!
My love got recommended at his job (which he’s only had a month) to be a manager-in-training! How great is that?! On top of a gift card to the store as a Christmas present.
I’m starting my job with Instacart soon; part time job as a personal shopper. I’m having motivation to start maybe an etsy business, as well. We will see where all this goes, but I am very happy, and very motivated. On top of our move being successful.
Everything is looking up. So much so, that the past, and the people of my past, are no longer relevant, i’m happy to say!
