Words of wisdom from Adam@Home June 13, 2011Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff, Random musings.
As some of you regular readers may know I subscribe to GoComics’ Adam@Home comic strip. This means I get the comic every morning as an e-mail. I (and probably most of you) can relate to Adam because he also works from home as a freelancer and loves his coffee. This Sunday’s comic strip was too good to not share…
Several of my colleagues have confided in me that they are thinking of taking office jobs for the steady paycheck, social interaction, etc. If you consider doing this you should weigh all the pros and cons. It takes a special kind of person to work and succeed as a freelancer. Not everyone has the discipline to make their deadlines and market themselves when things are slow. But I for one love freelancing and all that it offers. I love being able to translate my texts and then take the rest of the day off if I can. In fact, I plan on doing that today. I have some gardening I need to do and my library book (Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand) is due in two days. With only about 1,500 words to translate today I should be done by 1 or so… I hope you all enjoy your Whit Monday (or if you’re in the U.S. your Monday…)
