#BuckFiftyADay: Freelancing, Free-Wheeling
It’s been the strangest 14 months of my life. The life of a
freelancer, I reckon. I wake up every morning, looking for work. I perform a
handful of odd jobs. I troll the “job-finder” websites, but find mostly
frustration. But, it’s all right. Honestly, I wouldn’t wish this life on
anyone, but it suits me fine, and it’s made me stronger. I’ve managed to earn a
living, thanks to the people, the companies, who have given me contracts. I’ve
learned a lot about myself, and I’ve been able to do it mostly from home, which
is a blessing. Today, I had a second interview for a part-time baseball
coaching job at a junior college. Certainly not what I had planned a few years
back, but definitely what I saw myself doing when I was a freshman and
sophomore in college back in the early 80s. We’ll see what happens.
