Starbucks hot apple crisp macchiato

Image
In a previous post I reviewed the iced apple crisp. Today is a strange weather day it’s sunny and raining at the same time. Cold from the wind and hot from the sun at the same time. It seemed to be a perfect day to try a fall drink released in summer.  I also had stars that were going to expire soon. I would normally order a tall since I was using the stars I got a grande. The only customization I did was request coconut milk. I know it’s not the best for this kind of drink it’s the one I like the most. Otherwise I wanted to try it the way it came.  Previously I had gone shopping with my mom and then decided to walk home. I had a heavy bag of flour to carry on the 1.5 km home. I was hoping that I could sit outside at Starbucks. All the outside tables were taken and inside was efficient with them having a person opening and closing the door and telling you to go pick up your mobile order if it’s there. I’m not comfortable sitting inside anyways but it was definitely an atmosphere of gra

Update on mturk earnings

If you read by post on New Year's goals you would have seen that at the time I was earning pennies on mturk. I really gave up on it until last weekend. I had some free time so decided to take a look at what was available to me. I did an activity that was like playing a video game for 15 minutes which was worth 0.50 for the work and then I got a $1.60 bonus on it. That hooked me in and I decided to see if I could earn $3.00 a day on it for the week. I spent a couple hours after work completing surveys while watching tv and once I discovered I could do it on my phone I did them on my commute. There was a couple of days where i was tired and didn't really feel like doing anything but I got lucky in that there was a $4 or $5 survey available. I never do anything that will take me longer than half an hour I don't have the patience. I have returned a lot of hits but that doesn't affect the stats so I would just try it see if it was a waste of my time and return it.

I gave up on mturk too early maybe these hits were not available to me previously as I hadn't completed my first 100 hits yet. I am also doing fine with getting hits even though my rejection percentage isn't very good 96% seems to be the minimum for some hits. My percentage is low from when I was doing those 0.01 hits and made the mistake of being really tired and trying to work. Now I will only stick to mostly survey hits as they pay well and they are less likely to be rejected and its improving my percentage I was at 94% at the beginning of the week now its 95.5%

I have been reading on how to make money on mturk and most people say more hits will open up after 1000 hits. I still have over 800 items to go but its no problem making my goal of $3 per day so far this week this alone would get me to my $1000 goal this year if I did it everyday. I am avoiding those 0.01 cent hits now and just going for minimum 0.25 as these are way better. I don't think there are many Canadians that are doing this now so whenever there is a Canadian only survey out they are easy for me to get. I am just not sure if it was a really good week or it's going to be like this or better in the future. I did find that last weekend there was work that was worth me doing  and this weekend there wasn't. The weekdays seem to be the better days.

I also researched how to spend the money as a Canadian and it looks like I can buy whole foods gift cards with the money so I am going to try that and will do a future blog post on that.
