Ohhh, The Conflict!

On one hand, I may have a job soon. I'm really dying for a job... I'm getting burned out on the working on my own thing. I long for hanging out with some people.

On the other hand, a number of people are knocking on my door asking for me to do their website. I guess that's a good thing, because it means that if I don't have a job in the near future I'll have some money coming in.

The conflict is that I'd rather not start a website project on my own if I am getting hired pretty soon. It means working full-time and then some, and adjusting to full-time work will be bad enough. (Technically, I haven't worked full-time since summer 2003, unless you could school and part-time work, which I don't think I do.)

I'm just burnt out on being in my lonesome, sitting in this room day after day in front of my computer. And besides, if I was going to work on websites over and above a full-time job, I'd like to work on cMusicWeb.com, because that could use a bunch of work but it won't get done very well when I'm trying to make money off of other projects.



dude, if you can, do it on your own...it has MUUUUUUCH more potential for profit.

Obviously, you didn't really read the bottom half. Sure, there's more potential, but there's also more hard work, more of me sitting in my room by myself, and more of me having to deal with money, business matters, and such. I still want to learn all that and probably in the future will start my own business, but I'd rather get a chance to learn about all that through some experience at a small company. At least then I'll have some exposure to a small/independent business strategy, but with more financial stability and some others to interact and learn more along with. In my experience, it's a lot easier to work with a group than completely by yourself. I've found that doing my own thing is definitely doable, but I just don't think I'm ready for it yet.
