Today is officially my very first Thursday working from home. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with myself to be honest, but I figured I HAVE to stick to a schedule, otherwise I’d just play with the dogs and waste my day away.
My friends and family all asked me “What are you going to do on your day off??” Day off? Umm no, this is definitely NOT a day off, and I have to remember that always, esp. since I am becoming closer and closer to being self-employed. If I don’t work, I don’t make money. If I don’t make money….. I can’t go to Target
I’ve decided (at least in my head anyway) that my schedule has to stay relatively the same. Currently I still work fulltime 3 days a week as a Marketing Manager, waking up every morning at about 6am. I leave for work around 8am, get to the office at about 9, and always go out for coffee immediately. This morning I got up at 8, made breakfast for Matt, and then did emails / work related items until about 11am. Got dressed and then went out for a few hours. I didn’t go out for any specific reason, just went out to go out. I definitely *need* to be out of the house, even if only for a few hours, and I’ll definitely always get dressed.. even if I go nowhere but downstairs. There’s something about maintaining my normalcy that feels important to me.
Anyway, about an hour or so ago, it literally just clicked in my mind that I am working for myself. WORKING FOR MYSELF. Doing what I love. Living the dream. Yay!
