ruthless compassion


In the past couple of weeks, I've managed, almost effortlessly, to pick up a couple of little work-from-home gigs for friends. This is a nice way for me to let the concept of work back into my life, since I don't have to follow someone else's schedule, or go to an office, or keep someone else's hours. On the other hand, getting used to working from home is challenging for me, since I've never done it before, and it's super easy to get distracted by various things here, and to say, "oh, sure, I'll go out to lunch with X, and I can do my work later," and later becomes much later, and suddenly, I'm doing work at 11:30pm.

On the bright side, I can do my work on the back porch, where it's spectacularly fabulously perfect the past couple of days.

In other work news, I haven't heard anything from the two places I sent my resume the other week, and I haven't found any other listings that make me excited enough to apply, so... the waiting continues.
