So After spending six months last year unemployed, then hooking up with a decent consulting assignment for the last three months, (only to have it come to an end due to a buyout by MET Life) I'll be unemployed once again in two days.

This time I know what to expect, and I can guarantee I won't be eating Ramen for every meal again! I at least have had a promising interview and have a few leads on some other assignments. However, I am looking forward to having a bit of time off, even if it means not getting paid. I've started a new business with a good friend of mine, and we've got some great leads on new clients. I'm actually hoping I have a bit of time off to devote to giving this business a kick-start (more on that this weekend).

The economy around here isn't that great, everything seems to be moving out. I'd rather not move, I like this area (even with the snow, the 2.5 hour commute last night - normally takes 15 minutes - That was a story in itself, but I was too beat to write it up). So, I'll try my luck at keeping employed around here. I'm actually considering getting out of consulting (at least for a while) to take a solid job with the right company should the chance come up.

A few things I won't try this time:

  • Living on free stuff ordered over the internet - I now get about 10 free magazines, but as far as food - I only got some toothpaste and a slice of beef jerky, hardly enough to survive
  •  Begging for money - I did receive over $500 (over 6 months), also not enough to survive (all of that money was donated to Make a Wish once I got a job). I may start begging once again if I don't get a job, every bit helps
  • Switching to cheap beer - not good, bad. bad. bad.
  • Using sugar packets from McDonald's - Sugar is relatively cheap, I learned
