things I’d like not to repeat
August 2, 2011 § Leave a comment
The last time I freelanced, I did a lot of things wrong. These are the ones I least want to re-experience.
1 – I was so lonely, and so jealous of colorful tales from my roommates of coworkers and the mythical “happy hour,” that I called Kojo Nnamdi and Big Tig my “coworkers” and gave myself “business lunches” in which I would drink by myself at lunchtime.
2 – I left my hair in a towel for at least an hour a day.
3 – I accepted non-paying work. More than once.
4 – I only ate couscous.
