Does anyone here work two jobs?

I know we have a few working mums and dads which are definitely 2 jobs on their own, but for actual employment? Either full time with another part time, or 2 casual/part time jobs etc?

How do you all cope and what hours do you do, if you dont mind answering?

i'd be ready to argue anyone who works and goes to school is working two jobs. which means that for the last 7 years my mom has been working 3 jobs including taking care of us kids

I work one full time job, front a band, and am promoting and putting together a few art shows around town. I have ADD and insomnia so sometimes that helps.

Full time job 38 1/2 hours a week
Full time mom
Volunteer at my kids school

I couldn't do it without Mr fah, he is a wonderful father/husband and takes on equal responsibility around the house. It also helps that my kids do some basic chores (kids are 8, 6 & 4) I am a shift worker and on days that I am working, I am not around. I work 12 hour shifts, the first 2 are day shifts, the second 2 are nightshifts. When I get to sleep, I really enjoy it.

I work part-time at a gallery/picture framers, and then I work on my own paintings and drawings (I get commissions)the rest of the time. Since I can manage my own hours, it's not bad, but before christmas time it's crazy.

I own my own business (landscaping), work part time for my veterinarian, and volunteer/work as an EMT, as well as married and raising a 5 y/o...

so yeah, bit busy here.... it's an easier question to ask me "when are you NOT working.."

(the one benefit of being an EMT - you can sleep on your downtime waiting for a call to come in...)

I work full time as a pediatric RN, and part time in a newborn ICU - usually an extra shift a week. I feel like I'm always working! But do it now while I can I guess...

Both of my parents only have one job but they work more than regular full time hour so it's like they both have 1.5 jobs. My mom usually works 50 hrs a week retail plus has to write the schedule on days off. My dad usually works 50-60, but last week he had to work 70. Luckily me and my sister are 21 and 19 so they don't have to do the full time parenting thing anymore.
Part of the time i've been in college I've worked like 30 hrs a week and it sucked.

I worked a 2nd job over the holidays. It sucked. I think maybe because the other job was retail and I haven't worked in retail for a while. Plus I'm way too addicted to my computer to be gone from it that long. There was a time that I worked 2 jobs and went to school and thought nothing of it. But that was before I knew about blue crack

For the past six months, this is what I was doing:

My post-grad Biotech degree
Job #1 - 25 hours/week
Job #2 - 10-15 hours/week

Essentially you learn to function on about 4-5 hours of sleep/night. It's doable, but you will crash eventually. You also train yourself to take naps whenever possible. I can confidently assert that I can sleep anywhere, anytime!

So true
