I can thank my roommates for having the credit (and paying extra) for my three-bedroom apartment (did I mention we also had a loft? While I spent a lot of that time complaining about how much I was writing, I, realistically, only wrote for four to seven hours a day.I also had freedom since I was working from home and was self-employed/an entrepreneur/didn’t have a real job/whatever you want to call it.
