my love hate relationship with freelance

LOVE: the money ($45 per hour!!), meeting new people, feeling busy, rounding out my portfolio (what? you mean there are other things to design than silverware, propane torches and scrunchies?)

HATE: working at night and during the weekend, my inability to say no, meeting annoying new people.

I just picked up a new freelance gig doing branding and packaging for some new eco-friendly cleaning products. This is an ideal job since I fancy myself a novice environmentalist and feel the need to contribute something good to society. We have a kickoff meeting this week so I'll have more to share then. Happy Saturday, y'all!

I am feeling this way with my new projects I've taken up. I love my job (which is practically freelance, in the first place), but I keep asking myself why I keep adding new things to my plate.

Good thing A is cool with me being on my laptop all evening...

How was date 8?

ok, date 8 lasted from 7pm Feb 14 until 2pm Feb 16, so I'd say it was a success. eek, am I ready for a relationship??

Courtney said...

I hope so!!! I love long dates. Well, I used to.

I hate freelance because it keeps you from updating your blog very often! We need some updates on BS! (most awesome initials ever)
