Life is moving along well in the world of running my own business. Between working with my clients, managing the business side of the business, and launching a startup, my schedule is crazy. I have evaded a few panic attacks the past few weeks, which is good because they wouldn’t have been worth it. I alternate between obsessing over my checking account balance everyday, and swiping away to my hearts content and forcing myself NOT to look at my bank account balance for days. There’s got to be a happy medium in there somewhere.
I want to thank all the folks again who come by and send me a sweet email or leave a comment to cheer me on. It seems right when I am almost to a low point (albeit dramatic–I really don’t have much to be sad about lol), somebody somewhere says something to put a smile on my face, and I push forward. Thank you.
I have a cold. I need health insurance. I know how to get health insurance. I know how to get affordable health insurance. But I am being silly and want to save that money. I will get my health insurance soon though. SOON. I just have to get my mind right and fill out those forms again. I hate forms. I hate paperwork. So much so, I have $250 free bucks waiting for me. I just have to fill out a form to get it. It’s been a month and I still have not filled out the form.
I had to send a fax out of state this week. It cost me something over 5 dollars to send 4 pages over at Kinko’s. What the mess? I have two fax/scan/copy machines, but no phone line. I don’t think getting a phone line is worth the cost…I’ve been looking into some electronic faxing solutions. If you know of any, let me know.
Now that I am the master of my own schedule, I have been thinking about going to more conferences to beef up my skills and such. I don’t like networking (surprise! It’s because I am shy). But I love conferences. So, I am going to SXSWi this year, and I am batting my eyelashes at The Future of Web Apps. I have never been to Miami, either! I just need to get myself one more fat contract and I will sign right up.
I find that I am addicted to work. Doesn’t matter which project (a client, the startup, my pet projects), I am just always working working working and getting a little lost in my work. Like, I’ll go out on a weekend night, come home at 2 am and then work until 5 am. And for some reason I cannot sleep past 8 am to save my life. My energy is on a hundred, thousand, trillion! I felt guilty for taking the day off to be sick in bed. I need to watch myself. Good thing I have planned a vacation at the end of the month. Going to ATL (again) to see my best bud as well as one of my line sisters, and have a very non-work filled weekend. I am excited. Of course, I plan to play hard, so that means I’ll be working hard up until then. Maybe if I can schedule in weekend getaways every month or so, I will be ok.
Ok, I need to get my day going. I have roughly four hours of meetings today. Fun.
