    The hit from yesterday wasn't a HIT on MTurk, it was a standalone. You were supposed to do that hit, submit it to get paid for yesterday. If you didn't do the hit from the previous day, you were supposed to message her and/or do it again b/c you wouldn't have gotten the qual if you didn't do the work yesterday that was emailed and was not in MTurk Hit Form.

    My confusion was if we had to do another test. Which we don't, until later this week.

    I went to Uni in 1990. Out of my year group of 600 at school, less than 40 of us went to university and stayed there until graduation. Now, the %age of people going to uni is so much higher, what's a degree worth? I was lucky, in the UK at that time, uni was free and there was a grant to live on. But we were the first years of student loans and mine was paid within 6 months of working full time. Now, I'd never be able to afford to go. The fees are too high. But everyone is told that without a degree they are almost unemployable.... well that's something of a self-fulfilling prophecy. Life choices I don't regret mean I'm working on mTurk for pennies, But I'm 100% sure that grinding at a normal job to pay off student loans and car leases would feel equally as bad, if not worse.

    I'm grateful every day that I made choices earlier in my life that means now I'm only needing to cover minimal expenses each month. I'm continuing to learn that those expenses can be reduced and removed by simplifying and focusing less on the material and more on the spiritual and emotional (what the surveys call experiential, but without the hint of hipster).

    Of course, we'd have been great if hubby hadn't lost his job. And I'd not be angst-filled about affording the flights home to go to my dad's funeral. But actually neither of us want to get back on the hamster wheel of corporate (or worse retail) jobs to fund a lifestyle that we've realized wasn't making us happy and we didn't need.

    Remember these?

    Tried 2 of these on the 5 minute timer.... for 4 different recordings of a small paragraph of sentences. Only had to hop a few browsers to get mic permissions right... and then their system has to approve each recording, before you can continue... Pass.

    The HIT from yesterday was "step 3" and it's 6 dollars. She published the 6 dollar HIT today, and you just have to submit the HIT with any code. There was another HIT before that called "step 2", and some people had some problems with finding and submitting that HIT, and she was supposed to bonus them a 4 dollar bonus, but she couldn't figure out how to do that, so she made qualification HITs instead, and those are the 4 dollars ones. Also published today.

    I can't see the $4 ones because I did that survey and it was recorded. If you can see it you might need to?
