I am now receiving Social Security benefits (USA), and began MediCare coverage too. So I do feel officially "retired," even though it has been five years since I left my last real job.
In three days I will be trained as an "Election Judge" for the county and will assist with the four elections to be held here in 2012 (Primary, General, and two school elections). The county will pay me for my time. An actual pay check (as opposed to Paypal income from blogging and surveys.)
Am I pathetic? Pretty much.
