among my many failures

...I will add 'posting a youtube video twice, then not knowing how to remove it so that there's only one clip and I don't look like a moron' to the list.

among my many successes, I will add 'cooking a tasty chili made with chicken, green chiles and white beans' to the list.


Mm.

Here's to successes whose tastiness outweigh the inconsequentialness of failures.

and to the art of impossibly obtuse sentence structures.

Freelancing. It’s one of those maddeningly fuzzy terms that we hear all the time without ever quite grasping what it really means. And there’s a reason for that. Freelancers come in so many different stripes, working in such a broad swath of careers, that it’s difficult to define the concept.
Is a freelance worker the same as a temp worker? Is a freelance worker a contract worker? Is a freelance worker self-employed? Or all—or none—of the above?
Quick Definition: A freelancer is an independent contractor who sells services to different employers without having a long term contract with any of them.

And we provide entire Freelance Stuff under one roof called as totalfreelancer.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says about 6.4% of the workforce is freelance. In Virginia, this means more than 200,000 people. Well, a freelancer, otherwise known as an “independent contractor,” can be all of these things. Freelance workers are self-employed. But they don't own a store like a merchant, a professional office, like a doctor or lawyer, or a salon like a hairstylist. Instead they contract with employers to provide services or complete projects. They can travel to a client’s worksite to do a job, or they can work at home and send a project to the client. Sometimes they have a lot of different projects with a lot of different clients all going at once. Sometimes they work for just one client at a time, taking on new work only after they have completely put a project “to bed.” They can be paid by the project, by the hour, or sign a contract with a company to work a finite amount of time for a specific sum.

Some freelancers also opt to work as occasional temp workers, especially when they find themselves between projects—and paychecks. But what's critical is this: most freelancers work on a project-by-project basis. Whether the project is a movie, a video game, a cd, a book, a technical report, or even a performance, freelancers are hired to do their jobs because they have specific skills that can meet a very specific task.
The fruit of many creative jobs is an intellectual or creative “product” that can easily be sent to a client with the click of a mouse. Unlike receptionists, store clerks or dentists who have to work face-to-face with clients and customers, many creative freelancing professionals don’t interact with the public or even colleagues and bosses.
Enticing but sometimes a tough life. Admittedly, freelancing carries a certain allure. There’s something very attractive about deciding when you will and will not work. But the truth is that there are as many hardships as luxuries in this line of work. The life of any freelancer is fraught with uncertainty. Freelancers don’t know where their next paycheck will come from. Such uncertainty takes a psychological toll, as does the knowledge that if the economy slows they will most likely be the first to get sacked. Plus, there’s never any guarantee that today’s loyal client won’t be tomorrow’s turncoat, when a new, bright-eyed freelancer shows up with a few more skills under the belt along with bargain basement rates.
