It’s that time of year (fall) when I start thinking about Halloween costumes and Christmas presents. When you’re living on a budget, you try to think of an inexpensive but fun way to look good in a costume or tell someone you care.
Today, I found this as one of my @VicariouslyJane Twitter updates:
And I thought, “Hey, I could totally do that. I have a bunch of t-shirts I like but don’t use anymore … ”
But I don’t know if I would make one for a present. What are your thoughts?
Also, the topic on today’s Daily Post seemed interesting –
Topic #269: “What is freedom? When do you feel most free in your job? In your day? Least free? When is it better to not be free?”
For me, I’d say freedom is being the master of your time, which is what I’m trying to do by launching these niche websites. The idea is to eventually build up enough readership to do a newsletter/book/product thing and work for myself. Some people need structure, but I’d prefer to be in charge of my day. I can think of nothing better.
I feel most free when I am productive, interestingly enough. That seems to work in direct contrast to my time commitment phobia mentioned above. Yet, I feel trapped when I have nothing to do and I’m forced to “waste” time. There I go, valuing time again.
When is it better to not be free? Hmm … I suppose when you want to tell someone that you already have plans. Yup, I just skirted that question.
What’s your idea of freedom?
