The Perils of Being an Adjunct

Being an adjunct professor at the college level can be awesome but at the same time it carries with it some hazards.  I recently encountered one of these hazards at not one but two schools.  Low enrollment meant that classes were cancelled at both of my schools... so I'm down to two classes this semester.  Such is life, but it's a mean blow to my budget right now.  

Word to the wise- budget as if you'll have one class class than you anticipate!  Always save extra money for the low months!  Luckily I'm a decent budgeter and will be fine, but it is still disappointing and definitely means I have to tighten my purse strings.
