Ah, the freelance life. It is not for the faint of heart. You may experience strong cases of “pajama fever” and forget the day of the week. You will likely come to know more about your clients’ daily routines than those of your family, and your response to questions of, “Doing anything fun this weekend?” will be tearful laughter.
In case you have not experienced the joy of freelance life, here are a few GIFs to help you get the feel for it.
When you lose your planner, and the world refuses to stop...
Actual footage of a freelancer in her natural habitat:
Loitering becomes an art form. “Yes, I bought something! Twelve hours ago. Is that a problem"
Boundaries do not exist. “I’ve been working for 72 hours straight? Just one more email..."
Yes, we work in our pajamas. It’s a beautiful, magical thing.
Some days, we feel like we’ve made a terrible mistake.
But the smiles on our clients’ faces make it all worth it.
And by smiles, I mean emojis. Because we live on the Internet.
Some days it feels like there’s just too much to do.
But we always wake up ready for more!
