Yay! Summer vacation is right around the corner. I think I am looking forward to as much or more then the kids.
This week marks the final week of school for them and this year, I have a long glorious summer vacation spread out before me.
I have many fun things planned including one long family trip in addition to two smaller family trips.
Last year I had several long-term projects going over the summer. I am sure many other freelancers feel the same way, it sounds like a good plan to get up early or stay up late doing your work, until you are actually doing it. Then it loses some of its fun.
That isn’t to say I don’t have work this summer I do, but I don’t have a ton…and I am okay with that. After a long day at the beach or amusement park the last thing anyone wants to do is stare at the computer screen for a couple of hours.
Therefore, this year, as much as I like making money (who doesn’t) I am not working on any huge projects over the summer. Of course, if the right project came along I would most likely jump on it, because no matter how much we complain we love to have work.
