Being unemployed is.... not as enjoyable as I thought it might be. I'm not happy without difficult goals and daily challenges to conquer.
I cannot afford to retire, the career I am passionate about is closed to me*, and what I thought might be suitable niches for my skills have become less than favorable pits of depression** since I last worked that industry.
I need to seriously reevaluate my future prospects.
* I am certain I have a reputation for asking 'difficult' questions. "So.... you say the school has no money for critical classroom materials...... and you have the balls to say it from behind a brand new $4000 handmade desk?"
** A job that should pay $35K a year plus bonuses is offered at $5 an hour plus an undefined commission plan. A position as manager brings a demand for 60 hour work weeks and mandatory open to close hours every weekend for the rest of your life....etc etc.
