This week has been relatively slow. I had about ten orders (two of them being large enough to make me smile) but nothing over the top. I was looking forward to a relaxing Friday. Nothing ever happens on Fridays. Perhaps the odd buyer will pop in with a question or a revision request, but never anything significant. On top of that, it's the summer holidays in lots of places. But this Friday has been crazy. Three new orders popped in on their own. Then I landed a 4000-word eLearning project for a big corporation, a 3000-word and a 6000-word translation through custom offers, from buyers who decided that "now is the time!" I'm glad I can plan stuff like this, so I don't need to complete all the jobs this weekend. But damn. What a Friday! How's your week been?
Happy Sunday people! As a freelancer, one of the perks (and curses) of making our own schedules is that sometimes... we end up working over the weekends! While I don't take the them off completely, I always try to give myself some extra slack during them (and treat myself to some really nice food!) Yesterday we went out and had Indian food for dinner - I swear the food at that place is absolutely heavenly. It was really funny though because we go there so often that we got a bonus appetizer because we're regulars! Today is ramen time! Other than that, I make sure to take some time to walk around a bit outside, get some (Swedish, so sometimes non-existent) sun in, chat with friends and family... So, here's my question to you all: what do you do to make the weekends feel a bit more special?
