    Times are hard, and I've just actually read a spec for a job I'd be perfect for AND would absolutely adore... and it's freelance, which means I could still do everything else, could still work from home, and would be doing something awesome for a company I really respect. I just have to decide...

    A) whether or not to go for it
    B) how best to showcase my abilities
    C) if I feel I'm actually good enough to carry it off or not

    Either way, I have a tingle of excitement in my belly. Awesome.
    Oooooooh it's an invisible signature... oooooooooh!!

The same way I'm not going to start wearing ties, I'm *also* not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords. Because THAT is what 'acting professionally' results in: people resort to all kinds of really nasty things because they are forced to act out their normal urges in unnatural ways."

    A) What would you say to me in this exact situation?
    B) Take any one of the emails you've ever sent me and display the same amount of interest, except in yourself
    C) Refer to A)

    Job done. Let me know how it goes! What job is it?

    A) You have more time than me though, and it's time that this will need :|
    B) No no no, I mean ACTUALLY showcase my abilities... it's not a job where I can say "I'm this good" - I need to show them with technical examples, and it also has to fit with their style, so that's why I'm wondering how best to go about it.
    C) What they're looking for is pretty specific and although I have the technical expertise to carry it off... I have a very different style to what they do, so I may end up wasting a much-needed day off tomorrow producing something which may miss the mark entirely, and then it'll be another week before I get any time off and I know that next week is a cunt of a week.

    None of my hesitancy was actually negative, just pragmatic But thanks dood

    Go for it. You can always quit if it proves to be shit/too much.

    Would be good for you to have abit of extra money in instead of moaning all the time

    Plus would be a new string for your bow/ feather for your cap kinda thing/bollocks

    I think the reason you should go for it is:
