Change of career?

Since January 1st I have found myself in the unenviable position of being a Pro internet poker player! This isn't because I'm any good at it. Far from it. Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan are hardly quaking in their $25k loafers. Amatay isn't ringing me up for lessons (though he probably should). It's more to do with the fact that poker winnings are now my only source of income.
After getting made redundant I worked with Dave for a while and did some temping but since Xmas I haven't bothered. Winning $2k in the first week or so of January didn't help. The last two weeks though have been rather sad. I wont bore you with the bad beats because you've read them in a million blogs and they get worse each time. Tonight I cashed for the second time in 10 days. I actually played worse than I have recently but managed to final table mainly because some guy went on a massive heater and took out about ten people in a row. Anyway, I have a week to make $1k and I'll carry on for the time being. If not I'll start looking for a proper job.
In other news I'm also doing a bookkeeper course. Unfortunately I have another eight weeks to go before I pass. I have worked in Accountants before and I wouldn't mind setting up a little business. A few of my mates, Dave included, have their own businesses and have intimated that they would be happy for me to do their books. Anyone know what the going rate would be?
Haven't been around too many blogs recently but will definitely be looking in on everyone soon.
I'm on twitter "rubbish2407" if anyone fancies being bored on a more regular basis.
All the best.
