How do you manage your time as a freelance worker?

How do you manage your time and priorities as work ebbs and flows during your life as a freelancer? What do you do with your days between big jobs? What portion of your time is spent on paying work, managing your business (taxes, bills, sending invoices, etc.), personal/professional development, trying to find more work, networking, etc.? Do you deal with deluges and droughts, or is your work more steady and consistent, and how much control do you have about this situation? What do you do during lulls? How long did it take you to become comfortable with your workload after you became a freelancer? [more inside]

String on the finger that reties itself every 15 minutes

Best Simple Time Tracking App for iPhone?

Can anyone recommend a streamlined time tracking app for the iPhone? I'm looking for something that will let me set up a few general categories — desk work, studio work, commute, gym, etc. — and basically lets me pick one and hit a big start/stop button. Export functionality in some way (even dirt-simple) is needed, fancy stuff like invoice generation / project management is not. The goal is to get a rough statistical overview of how I spend my days, not to get obsessive granularity or handle timesheets, so the ideal app would be about two taps to pick a category and start the timer.

GradSchoolFilter: How bad did I screw up, and can it be fixed?

I'm trying to get a M.S. in Computer Science, I already have a B.S. in Computer Science. Started last year as a full time student, took a semester off, and now trying to take classes while holding a full time job. My horrible time management skills combined with not knowing how crazy my job gets in August has caused me to do poorly in class. So poorly, that I may be "ineligible to continue graduate study". I'm very de-motivated by the whole situation and wondering what my options are, so I have a couple of questions [more inside]
