So, tomorrow marks my return to the 8-5 world of an office job. I’ve really enjoyed freelancing the last 7 or 8 months and the freedom that came with it but I’m very much looking forward to being back at a regular job. I’m going back to work for my old boss before I left to start 451 Press. I’ve been doing freelance work for them for some time now and it’s just a good fit. I’ll get more into specifics in a later post. There are plenty of things I don’t like about working in an office but I think the pros are worth so much more than the cons. This doesn’t mean I’m abandoning the company I’ve started on my own. In the long term it means more opportunity.
One of the things I’m looking forward to most is a more structured routine. What I’m not looking forward to is getting up in the morning. I’m just not a morning person. Even after working full time for nearly 25 I’m very much a night owl. I really get creative and energized as the night goes on. Hopefully after enjoying the flexible schedule for so long it won’t be too hard to fall back into the routine. Tuesdays were always the hard day for me. This time around I’m going to try and establish my schedule 7 days a week instead of sleeping in on the weekends and see if that helps.
At any rate, I’m excited and if anyone has any tips on returning to work after a long time freelancing I’d love to year it.
