The Joy of Self Employment, Note #345

One of the problems with self employment is that, when you don't work, you don't get paid.

Consequently, I rarely cancel work. There's a week here and there when work gets canceled, due to a combination of events, such as the lives of students, the alignment of the stars, and so on and so forth. This week, in addition to that, I bailed on lessons today because I feel like shit. But, even knowing that I just did that and that it was a fair call, I have guilt, because that's how this thing works, and now I'll go off and write to make up for the cash I'm missing and to make sure I'm using my time properly.

I think I hate myself, just a little.
