What I want is to escape the rat race, get out of the endless cycles of office jobs, and do work that will make me happy. I've started looking at freelance stuff - article writing initially, which doesn't pay much but is frequent enough that I could potentially make a decent bit of pocket money. I'd also like to get into freelance editing, which could be a bit tricky to start on, but it's something I'd love to do, so I intend to put some time into that one.
My aim is to be able to go part-time by the time I'm 30 though a mix of my own writing and freelance work. I figure there's nothing to lose by aiming high. The older I get, the more dissatisfied I become with being a wage slave, working to live and barely scraping by on that. I don't expect to earn more money by going down the freelance route, but if I could make as much money, I'd be deliriously happy. I don't want to be here in ten years' time still feeling like I'm wasting my life in jobs that leave me unfulfilled. So... watch this space, I guess.
In other news, the kitchen sink is blocked and I have a ton of washing up to do in the bath tub. Bank holidays mean I can't contact my landlord until Tuesday. This does not impress me at all.
