Can I buy some of your free time?

$3 an hour, which is a pretty good deal in this economy.

Currently experiencing a quite intense amount of backlogged to-do items, primarily at work but also in quasi-work and personal life items. I just this minute voted in our officers' election for Ye Olde Professional Association*, which I had been procrastinating. I want to actually thoughtfully vote for people that I expect will make sound/non-crazy decisions with their limited power, which requires some research (and hence time).

Another opportunity that came up recently was to serve as a reader for my undergrad alma mater's thesis students. I am likely going to pass on that for this year, but it is always an option in the future when I have an assistant more free time to give.

And work is work. Four deadlines between now and the end of September, on enormous projects that are going to take up almost all of my time. I'm reading up on my pomodoros and using co-share offices when the open office environment gets too loud to maximize productivity.

* The idea of a professional body feels pretty antiquated at times, and we certainly have more drama than any association of adults would ever need. Still, they've been helpful to me when I have needed them and provide the connection to young and/or underemployed people in the profession who in turn could use my help, so I stay around.
