I broke even a few weeks ago and am now making a steady profit (when it isn’t raining). The money that I make from it tides me over well for miscellaneous things through out the week (which have increased – read further)
So far the number of people per tour are as follows: (Sunday then Wednesday)
2, 1, 5, 2, 0, 4, 6, 0
I’m still working at the youth hostel, but I’m living at another one in the chain, because our one failed some fire regulations. No biggie, as long as it stays open I should still have a job there, and I can just live here. Works out alright as they will even get me an unlimited metro card
Ticket selling is going very very slow and I’m thinking of it as a few extra dollars rather than a per hour job. I’m averaging about 2 a day ($18), but that is money I wouldn’t have otherwise.
Temp work is going great, I’m getting about three jobs from them a week, doing coat checking, or box shifting or other random things. It pays good money (ten to twelve an hour) and there are great perks – like tips and free cutlery and vegetables.
I’ve been hanging out with a girl a fair bit recently who I met when I tried to sell her tickets on the street. We have been d0ing lots of different things like going to karaoke bars, plays, movies and comedy shows. I’m having a good time. Not always good for saving money, but good for having fun, and I’m not going to be in NY for that much longer. I should still just have enough to pay for the course in France in a few weeks, if I am still going ahead with that……
