Before I started freelancing, I worked at a large consulting firm. Around this time of year that meant a swanky office holiday party in some fabulous venue, complete with delicious food, free-flowing drinks, a band and dancing in your finest holiday dress. It was pretty sweet.
People sometimes ask me what it’s like to be a freelancer and if it’s lonely working by yourself, particularly at this time of year when everyone else is having afternoons off for the holiday team lunch or enjoying a fancy dinner on the company dime. For me it’s not a big deal because I actually do still have an office holiday party. I happen to share office space with a small consulting firm called Sneetch & Co., and we have a joint office party to celebrate the end of the year.
And if you think your office party gets a little raucous, you’ve got nothing on these guys. I’m lucky that I’m not nursing a killer hangover, what with the cocktails that got served up and the crazy dancing that took place.
Now that I’m fully recovered, I wanted to share some pictures to give you a little idea of how freelancers celebrate the holidays. Happy holidays to you and yours from me and Sneetch & Co.!
