I don’t go anywhere outside of the house asI’d hate to have background noise in meetings, but I make sure to get up and get fresh air when I can and make sure my work space is purely my work space… just trying to set boundaries for myself

I go to the local library. I hate the noise and bustle of Starbucks or any coffee shop. Libraries today aren't silent, but not as loud as stores. Mine has a few benches outside to sit at and take a call from when I need to.

My local Starbucks has a crowd of chatty old guys that hang out all morning, so that’s out of the question. I think I’m going to head into our office sometime this week. We’re open for those that want to go in, though from what I gather it has been totally vacant and there’s no coffee.

How do we take a sick day if you’re a freelancer? Do you guys cancel jobs if you’re feeling sick? Even if you’re halfway through them and it’s a pitch, knowing that they’d be pretty screwed if you pulled out. Nervous about damaging the relationship…

Need advice: was talking to this hinge guy for nearly 2 months ( only 2 physical dates and numerous long phone calls). Complimented me endlessly, told me he liked me etc. Well, this weekend he canceled our 3rd date twice in a row because he was sick. I haven’t heard from him since cancelation. I checked his hinge profile and he updated his location to NYC from the town we live in hundreds of miles away. Im gutted. What would u do? I know its early, pls dont shame me :(
