The good, the bad, and the ugly

Things I love about being a freelancer (aka "the good"):
  • working in my jammies, if I want to
  • being my own boss
  • finding projects that interest me, not just projects that help somebody else's bottom line
  • actually loving my job, for the first time in twelve years
  • actually getting paid to do what I love
Things I don't love about being a freelancer (aka "the bad"):
  • quarterly taxes
  • bookkeeping in general
  • trying to explain to people what I do
  • not always knowing when to stop working
  • networking
And, finally, here's what happens when you let your home office become more home and less office (aka "the ugly"):

Even though there are the same number of bullets for the good and the bad, the good far outweighs the bad (if this ever changes, I'll start looking for what my hubby likes to call "a real job"). As for the ugly, well, I've got a cleaning spree planned for the weekend.

After you clean yours, can you come clean my office? (I call it Sodom & Gomorrah!) :)

Angie, are you saying you have a mess of "biblical proportions?" Har har.

Kathryn, good luck with that!
