I had a terrible case of the flu last week. I’m talking fever, chills, coughing-up-a-lung type of flu. The kind of flu where your entire body hurts and you hate everything — including the world.

Instead of getting an entry-level job at a newspaper or magazine, I immediately started looking for online gigs. My then-husband and I were up to our eyeballs in student loan debt.
