  • 09:31 I am now waiting at the dentist for Lindy. She is getting her wisdom teeth pulled. #

I've been writing website keywords for the past 18 months. There have been many problems, but the biggest is that my employer was taking advantage of me. He was way, way, way underpaying me. He's been increasing the complaints the past couple of weeks or so--he wanted me to write 750-1000 words/hour for $10/hour. Some days I would spend an entire day working on the assignment, and writing up to 8k/day. And he was still complaining about the amount I was turning in. Of course, he never so much as apologized when he would delay sending me the money he owed me by one, two, three, even four weeks.

Tonight, it reached a breaking point. He threatened to fire me, then wanted to shortchange me to the tune of $450. So i told him fine, I would accept $600 instead of $900--and oh yeah, I quit.

I don't quit this job lightly. I'm really scared about losing that source of income. And yet, at the same time, I'm relieved I won't have to deal with that anymore.

But I'm also scared he won't pay me. Ugh. I hate this. I'm so scared and so relieved and so sick and did I mention relieved?

I'm starting my teaching job tomorrow. I already finished up the syllabus and I think I'm prepared and ready to go. I'd rather be focused on that than this crap.

I really hate this.
