Writing this Saturday is interesting, because Monday could be crap. As usual. With Big Photographer Client and all his Mess.
However, after feeling like crap Saturday I’ve made a few good decisions. Here they are:
Replacing the 1500 USD per month I earn from Big Photographer Client is of paramount importance.… Read more
.. which I realized yesterday as I was sitting on that cafe and not really living the ‘laptop lifestyle’:
I have to strike a balance.
Giving entirely up on my strong drive to earn money in better and more enjoyable ways, won’t work.
But I need not to obsess too much about it and let that mission distract me from appreciating everything else in life.… Read more
That’s the question I ask each morning when I go out in the neighborhood with Jay in his carriage, so Char can get some extra sleep.
It would also be a good question for my life currently. With regard to a number of themes.
Since I am so restricted with time and energy right now, helping raise Jay, trying to earn a minimum income regularly through my firm, and doing dishes 3 days old, this is not an easy question to answer.… Read more
So it didn’t happen that we became a family this weekend, although we had made a number of guesses that we would. Guesses we almost believed in.
That’s fine. The term is May 6 and it will be May 13-14 at the latest, as the docs will start it up if nature doesn’t – due to Char’s age (41).… Read more
As I worked through today’s tasks in my ‘home office’, while Photographer Client (CN) is romping around Burma to shoot monks, I wondered if I hadn’t after all made a wrong decision about this client.
If I’m not entirely wrong I have written about it previously, and most definitely thought about it:
Like saying once and for all – ‘I’ll work 3 days or 24 hours a week and no more – if you are not satisfied with what I can accomplish in that time, find someone else’.… Read more
What would my ideal work-scenario look like for my photographer-client?
That I worked only at his office, 3 days a week and got full compensation for it. 8 hours a day, did as much as I could, pushed the rest.
What does it look like for him, perhaps? Or if I should interpret the signs so far?… Read more
Today I went to the photographer client’s office an hour away only to discover that he had neglected to inform me that his plane was delayed from Norway, so I was alone there.
Not sure if I should be feeling pissed or not. I had some files there – no other computer – that I couldn’t have gotten to anyway, if I had not been in the office.… Read more
Had a rather trying day with Difficult-Again-Photographer-Client, CN, and wondered as I went home with the metropolitan train how to kill.
The problems, not CN. Although the two are related.
Basically he overloads me with tasks which I can’t possibly keep up with in the 14 hours a week he has hired me.… Read more
What is this blog for, anyway? Nobody reads it, and I feel too little energy and too little time to promote it.
I know. I have seen the stats. There are virtually no visitors.
With the increasing vastness of the Internet, will it even be discovered when I have 840 posts?… Read more
