Working in a pub is like being castrated and working in a brothel

Not if you work in the right pub.

Aren't there any other jobs near you? How about night stocking at the market, so you don't have to work when they're open?
stop thinking start drinking

I used to do alot of whacky shit -

Sell your plasma.

Order your 12 free CDs from colombia house / BMG under the wrong name, then sell them to a used CD store.

Make water bongs from stolen university chemistry stuff. You can get $30 per bong!!

I used to sneak into the cafeterias for food and take as much out (like bagels) as I could so I never paid for food.

Or, just get a job as a stock boy or at a pub. I worked in a stockroom the whole time I was in college. I could work any of the 24 hours of the day.

Second shift is ideal for me. Go to work in the afternoon, get off at drinking time, sleep late, repeat.

As to the question posed: get a job at the mall, at a store where you get paid ok, you don't have much to do, and you can do your homework. Mall jobs usually end right at 2100 or so. Or, try the work/study program at your school; you can usually choose between a paycheck or money off of tuition.
