firesea: self-portrait

morning linkage

I've read dozens of books and articles on starting your own business, what to do, what not to do, etc., but this is one of the best articles on the subject I've read yet:

10 Stupid Mistakes Made by the Newly-Self-Employed

(And, article title notwithstanding, he doesn't make you feel stupid for having made those mistakes; he actually explains why they're natural traps to fall into, which is refreshing.)

"How are you feeling?"

I have realized that I now have days where my entire mood and mental/emotional state can be determined by one word: "pregnant"

(in other words, "I'm feeling bloated, achy, crampy, tired, hungry, moody, sore, clingy, unfocused, irritable, lightheaded, and restless, with a constant emotional backdrop shifting between euphoria and sheer terror, thanks, and you?")

Midwife appointment later today, and ultrasound on Friday!

I am 20 weeks pregnant today. Halfway through. The mind boggles.
