I think my post yesterday was somewhat misleading and I left you all (or most of you) with the impression that I was worried about other people’s opinions on my site. On the contrary, it’s not other people’s opinions that are bugging me — it’s my own! One half of my head is saying “prove your skills with professionalism” and the other is saying “do what the heck you like because it’s your damned website”.
I do want to create a proper portfolio to entice potential business clients at some point — this is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time though. While I don’t intend to try and kid myself into thinking I could survive on freelance work, a few bits on the side would certainly be a boost to my savings. Savings? Sorry, I meant spendings. ;)
I went into the local town centre today to hand out my CV to any poor sod willing to accept it. Currys.. or was it Comet? I don’t know, one of the two: said they’re looking for some Christmas workers and they’d give me a ring at some point if they need me. Super duper. I know a job is a job at the end of the day, but I don’t have the patience to deal with stroppy customers who think they know best. So, while I’m hopeful because it is work, I won’t be disappointed if they don’t ring. Apparently lots of spotty college kids have been applying anyway (that wasn’t the exact words of the lady I spoke to, but it was the impression I got.)
Heyho.. it’s the weekend! Not that that is much to celebrate, I’ve got work to do. *groan* Still haven’t finished this football database and it was supposed to be done weeks ago. I will get it done this weekend, damnit.
