It has been over a week since I posted. As I mentioned in one of my last posts, I accepted a babysitting job to supplement my living costs here in DC. As all unpaid interns know, it can be very, very, very nerve-wracking to not have a steady source of income, but be spending money everyday on metro, food etc. So far, I have been watching the kids for a week. Since I’ve gotten my first paycheck, it is abundantly clear why I took this job. It feels great to have an income again. However, all is not well with the union of part-time work and unpaid internship.
