An amazing thing about being a camgirl: no office hours!
I do try to follow my posted schedules on Streamate and MyFreeCams, but if something comes up (family in town, friend finds an awesome farmers’ market, I discover “The Mighty Boosh” on Netflix), I don’t have to call in sick or ask for a day off–I do what I want! I’ll usually throw up a tweet or two, and then the next day everything is back to normal. Yay!
A not-so-amazing thing about being a camgirl: no paid sick days.
I realize that lots of people have jobs without paid sick leave, but I had them in all of my post-university jobs, so being sick for a few days has never been something that was really on my radar as a problem. Deciding to change my schedule for fun things is wicked, but a no work day is a no pay day. When one sick day snowballs into 4 days of curling up in bed, sweating and swearing I’m dying…well, even watching old episodes of “Foyle’s War” can’t make that that fun.
I’m up and about a bit more now, and I’ve eaten some real food (well, a banana muffin and a Diet Coke, don’t judge me), so I’ll hopefully be back online tomorrow. I mean, there is only so much British WWII mystery drama a girl can watch before she starts questioning her sanity!
Oh, and in case the title seemed familiar, I nicked the idea from Miss Azalea. Fancy indeed.
