Well, I actually like Freelance Job so much because I can work from home. Of course, I enjoy my time staying home with my mom and siblings.
Yeah! Freelance work has been known as Flexible working hour. But it turns to be terrible when I stay at home, yet I have to spend my whole day just to sit in front of computer and work on my freelance task. That’s not fun at all -_-
It’s even worse when that Flexible hour means every seconds for working.
I experience it now T_T
Last month, I worked on experience abroad about a young lady who is living in the USA. Because time zone in Cambodia is different from the USA around 12 hours, the time I get up is the time she goes to sleep. And that if I dropped her a message, I need to wait for other 12 hours for her response. I remember that at that time I was about to sleep at 12 mid-night. Before going to sleep (it alr late actually), I dropped her message asking for photos, I think she has forgotten sending it to me. I almost fall asleep, suddenly I heard a message came. I checked it, she said she alr sent to me.
That’s so stupid, that her photos go to spam which doesn’t appear on my phone. To make it clear, I got up, checked email from my computer. It totally kept me awake the whole night… -_-
These few days, M working on writing feature story about Christmas with my fri Daly. The article features on comparing the celebration of Christmas by Cambodians and foreigners, so we are required to talk to some foreigners. Time zone is still a difficulty.
That’s when I really feel ‘Flexible Hour’ means ‘Every Seconds for Working.’
I interview them via Facebook– Chatting. Whenever they reply me, I need to respond back very quickly. Else, I might have to wait until 2mrw. I keep chatting even when I was eating rice or was doing my personal tasks.
Probably, because there are too many flexible hour tasks–workings, interning, doing school projects, Peace camp project– come at the same time, that’s why I feel all of my time isn’t belong to me lately.
And that I think I really NEED personal space 😥
