Of course there's always driving a semi truck, but that depends a lot on how much time & money you have to put toward getting the CDL. I was totally gonna do that a few months ago then I changed my mind. Nothing much else is coming to mind at the moment.
I've actually been looking for a data entry job. No luck so far, although I do have a job coach helping me out. I mean we've found a few things but they always seem to lead to dead ends. I do know they're usually temporary jobs though for whatever reason. So I guess that means a few months with a job I can actually bear if I'm lucky, and then it's pulled right from under me. Great.
I tried working 3rd shift for one night and I called it quits. May sound ridiculous, but all it took was a 9 hour overnight shift to show me that I wouldn't be able to handle working those kind of hours. Especially because the grocery store I was at had 3rd shift workers who enjoyed working 12 hour shifts with very small breaks. That meant from about 9:30 or 10 PM to 10:00 AM, which of course also meant I'd still be there hours after the store opened and customers came in.
I suppose I'm being a little naive in thinking I'll be able to find work that doesn't require a lot of customer interaction or working late hour shifts. I must be living in a fantasy world.
