turnover

As of last week, I got a job as a personal assistant to a blind Mills College PhD student. Between last Friday and yesterday, I:
  • Took her to make copies of her mailbox key
  • Helped her get cash from the ATM
  • Made her bed (which sounds a lot easier than it really was... the woman has like 10 decorative pillows and 5 different layers over the mattress all of which she insists must be arranged in really specific ways)
  • Returned a book on tape to a library for the blind
  • Picked her up from school
  • Took her to a cafe for lunch
  • Generally walking her from place to place in all this and making sure she doesn't fall in harm's way
As of today, I no longer have this job, as she realizes that she really doesn't have that much stuff for me to do since she still has another assistant and that she can't afford to pay me for as many hours as I'd like to work. Lovely. Oh well. No damage done. Tomorrow I'm going over to her apartment to pick up a check for 4 hours of work plus $10 for gas (which is way more than the gas I used cost) for a grand total of $62, which is not too shabby in my opinion.
