1. “So do you like, watch Netflix all day?”
No. I work. A lot. I probably work more than I did in an office job, because A) I’m doing something I actually enjoy and B) I don’t suffer from the general exhaustion that comes with waking up at 6am, working from 9am-5pm, and getting home after dinnertime. I can use all of those hours people waste on getting ready and commuting to produce my work.
That’s not to say I don’t take breaks or do weird stuff during the day. I like that I can do my laundry at 11am when no one else is around, or go to the gym at off-hours. I also happen to work better between the hours of 3pm and 9pm, so being able to set my own hours is super key in maintaining productivity.
