I’ve taken a part time job.
It has nothing to do with money and everything to do with my sanity. It’s only two days a week but that’s two days a week I get out of the house.
It’s with an alterations shop. So it’s stuff I can do, it’s improving my skills and it’s customer facing. I get to chat to mostly nice people, deal with money, and listen to staff bitching about each other. It’s also 20 hours a week I am not at home in my studio/bedroom feeling angry and frustrated.
And I’m kind of happy about this. If you have the time and you’re working from home and feeling depressed, it could be your solution whether permanent or temporary. It doesn’t have to be related to your industry. You might want to do something completely different. It doesn’t matter so long as it helps to keep things balanced.
