I play guitar and sing in a hobby band. We play classic rock. Beatles, Stones, Neil Young, Tom Petty, etc. The pay is laughable. I would estimate in a typical year I " make" hundreds" and spend "thousands". So far so good.

I also make "hundreds" a year from gigging. However, I don't spend much on gear so in most years my gigging income exceeds the expenses. And, of course, since I get paid to play, I can call myself a "professional musician", lol...

I also was a software developer for most of my full time career. After retiring in 2009 at 51, I started teaching part time at a local college (computer science). At first it was one class, then two, ...then after a few years full time. So, watch out!

Part of the reason I do it is the health care benefits from being full time. I won't lie, having the extra money is nice although I've been deferring most of it to a tax deferred plan (457B) and really don't need the pay. But in reality I like teaching (except for the grading), and even with full time the "at the job" hours are pretty good (especially since students these days have migrated towards on-line classes), and I get summers off. It keeps my mind busy, and I love learning new things (because of this I've always said yes when asked if I can teach something different).

I have a child that still has a number of years before finishing high school. Once that happens, I will likely hang it up and officially re-enter retirement.
