I love the idea of freelance. I realize it's not all roses but the idea of being free from some cunt breathing down your neck in a soul destroying pattern of repetition as they wear you down and wear you down until you crack or come to the realization that your necktie is a symbolism for a corporate noose.
But freelancing sucks major balls. Getting clients in a pain in the ass, speaking to people about their mundane stupid problems, chasing them for money that they won't pay because they know you're just one person..
Nobody takes freelancers seriously. Banks say good morning sir.. now get the fuck out
