I spent the weekend in Dallas. I went to Guitar Center, ate at Chipotle (the best burrito on this planet), saw the fourth Harry Potter movie, which was excellent, and went to the Baylor vs Oklahoma State football game (go Baylor!). I’m back in Waco, ready to do some hardcore Mturking.
I checked my status and found that almost all of my hits have been accepted! In the last 30 days I’ve submitted 1243 HITs. 1124 HITs have been approved, 55 rejected, and only 64 pending. Only 4.7% of my hits have been rejected! I have only really worked three hours total and I have accumulated earnings of $33.72, with about $2 pending. Mturk is a very viable source of income for a college student who doesn’t have a lot of time to put forth towards a typical job. Just turking an hour a night can bring in nearly $300 a month!
I will start turking again tonight. Hopefully I can put in a few extra hours to make up for what I missed. I am looking forward to making my first investment. I haven’t chosen a broker yet so I don’t know my first milestone. Amazon stock is pretty inflated right now but if it comes down I will probably buy some.
