I’ve never had a “real” job. Meaning, I’ve never had a constant paycheck, an office to go to, or a boss. I think I’ve done pretty well on my own. I’ve always worked from home, set my own hours, and spent all day working on projects by myself.
I still have a few long-term clients that I really enjoy working with but other then that I’m done with freelancing. I’ve taken my first “real” job. The kind where I leave my house, work as part of a team, and get payed regularly. I’ve only worked there for half a day but I like it already. My only complaint is the 25 minute drive, but it’s not too bad, I’ll get used to it.
I haven’t been working long enough yet to know whether I like it better than working freelance but I’ll definitely blog about that later and the differences of working at home and at an office.
Anyways, I’m really excited about the new job and I’m excited for all the new experience I’ll have in the next couple of months. More to come later… including a new design… who made this fugly site?
You gotta tell us what your new job is. We are itching to know.

Yeah, I’m curious too!
25 minute commute?!! I’d kill for that. I spend about 2.5 hours per day commuting here in fenix.
Not so bad!
But seriously, good luck!

‘payed regularly’. Sounds like fun.
What’s the job?

Your new job sounds interesting. It’d be nice to know about the differences between freelancing and actually working.

[...] Integrum is awesome. I already told you how cool they are. It was fun working with them. I learned a lot about having a “real” job and what it’s like to work with a team. It was really cool working there and I thank them for the experience. [...]
