i asked about this maybe a year ago, but am hoping there will be some fresh ideas.

i'm a musician but i need a "day job" to support myself. most jobs i can find, though, really, really stress me out. jobs where i have to make a lot of decisions/judgment calls, deal with a lot of pressure, etc, give me enormous anxiety. i'm a little bit socially anxious, too, which contributes to it.

therefore i'm looking for a job that's completely routine and mindless. where i'm just following a standard procedure. the lack of stress is important to me because i need to be working 30 - 40 hours a week in order to support myself, which doesn't leave a ton of time for me to work on my music, so if my job is stressing me out and making me think and worry about it during my non-work hours (which is the case with my current job) i'll have even less time to focus on music. i need something where i can go in, do the work, go home and forget about it, go back the next day, etc.

does anyone have any ideas? i've been applying for some data entry and proofreading jobs but i'm wondering if there are other things i might be overlooking. i live in toronto, if that helps. and i have a BA in psychology.
