So I started a post about Mexico but most of it got deleted so I am going to finish it eventually. I just couldn't bare to rewrite it at that time.

The point of this post is to vent about my parents, mainly my mom but this isn't just about her.

So how many ways can I tell you to leave me alone and let me handle this. I am applying for jobs regularly and still haven't found another job. Well my mother sits in her bedroom in her spare time and trolls websites to find me a job. The only problem with that is I don't have enough legal experience or the grades to apply for the jobs she keeps throwing at me. I hate to say it like this but my mom is a teacher and finding a teaching job is much easier than finding a law job. In the teaching field they just want you to have a degree and be able to teach. In the law field they want experience and grades. Grades don't guarantee that you will be good at your job but they still want grades. If I had the experience they may be willing to overlook the grades. Well I don't have either so I am stuck between a rock and a hard place. I could go on but I would be rambling so I will move on to the next part of the story.

Yesterday my mother called the head of the dept of poli sci at the local college and pretended to be me to see if they were looking for adjunct professors. They were and she told him that I was willing to teach at any time of the day so expect my info in the mail. That would be fine and dandy if the money was worth it. Can I just say being an adjunct is a rip off to the person. The pay is $3000 or so per semester. If the semester is 14 weeks that is roughly $214 per week. What is that going to help me do and that is before taxes. I was so hot! She didn't even see the wrong in this. What if I am offered a job in a non commutable area like the capital of my lovely state. I would have to turn the job down b/c I signed a contract to teach for the semester. I went off and the only reason she apologized was because I made her feel so guilty. I just don't understand how you are trying to run my life and then think I am going to nut up.

My issue with my dad is his trying to stand up for her. Wrong is wrong! He is like she has never had a daughter so she doesn't know what is good or bad. Yeah that argument would work if I was five and she did something like forget to pack my new medicine that I just got. I am freaking 29 and that is just not cute at all. She was wrong and she knew she was wrong. I have told her in the past to stop doing that stuff and it isn't like this is the first time.

I am still mad but I did get it off my chest >-(

You can shoot me later, but I teach an adjunct job for $1750 a semester. A measley $404 a month. I did it as a favor, but it ended up opening quite a few doors for me. Putting it on my resume helped me get 2 online teaching jobs that pay about $1600 every six weeks. Last year, I ended up making more than $25k in "adjunct" jobs. Don't sleep on it! Your mom might be onto something that you can parlay. I know at least two people who ONLY teach part-time online, and pull in 6 figures. It can be lucrative.
