The Quest

I have been busily applying for all sorts of jobs. A few administrative assistant things with the state, several instructor/professor positions.
It's a grind and the rejections suck, but something will come along.
I'm looking into alternative certification for teaching, probably high school. Expense and my own health are likely to be the most significant issues there.
I average 2 -3 migraines each week. I am semi-functional through some of them - as in, I can do some limited computer work if I can be in bed to do it. That's mostly how I manage my current part-time online teaching gig.
Often, at least 1 migraine each week leaves me fairly incapacitated.
All of them leave me with a "hangover" of exhaustion and derpiness. And my executive functioning during a migraine is, um, limited. Driving is agonizing and if I have to drive I can't take my most effective abortive meds.
And that's just the suck from migraines. Other health issues add their own excitement.
Obviously, that won't work with a traditional full-time job.
Online work with a flexible schedule is ideal. So is anything with the option for telework from time-to-time.
Teaching at the college level has worked very well for me too. I can usually hold it together long enough to hold class and office hours. Nearly everything else can be done from bed or couch if necessary.
Plus, I love teaching.
So, hold out hope for a wicked cool job for me, eh? I've got to get my own place and start up with the decorating.
So far, the themes include velociraptors and Cthulhu.
