Long story short: I just got my account approved two days ago after some trouble getting things going, but I'm on now.
Currently I'm employed by my college as a campus security officer, but we're technically classified as "interns", not employees, so we're very limited in hours and pay. During summer we can work a little more, so I'm currently pulling in around $800/month. While that definitely covers the basics (food, credit card bills, etc) I don't have much for spending money. And unfortunately, I got suckered into the very expensive hobby of bicycles. The race I'm going to in August is $120 just for registration.
So, how realistic is $100/week for someone just starting out with minimal hits? The good news is that between my patrols I can stay at my computer and work on MTurk during my shift (8pm to 7am because I hate myself). Any tips? Thanks!
