That's the beauty of Upwork. Because it is home-based, I don't have to contend with the daily hassles of preparing and commuting/driving to work. I have my own daily disciplines though when it comes to working at home so I can maintain a healthy work-life balance.

I feel excited and anxious as well. There hasn't been a lot of assignments lately. My salary is dependent on the number of hours I work.

Very difficult to get good jobs but when you do find one, it feels great to be contributing with my skills.

Meh. The jobs were exciting, but avoiding the scams/phishing adverts was a pain. It got to the point where it wasn't worth the hassle.
