You Know You're A Freelancer When...

Updated: Jul 25, 2019


In January alone, I held eighteen different jobs.

Eighteen! In one month. How is this real life? I have no idea. How am I not in permanent nap mode? Coffee. Duh.

Freelancing, for me, upholds a combination of substitute teaching through the Diocese of Rochester, substitute teaching through the Rochester Charter Schools, teaching private lessons on flute, clarinet, and saxophone (shout-out to my incredible studio of five), performing, paid rehearsals, transcribing music, arranging music, composing music, and preaching about the contents of this blog.

The list goes on and on. It's not wonder why I'm so exhausted! And I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Segue to me asking all of my fellow freelance artists on Facebook & Instagram

- based on your hustling expertise -
