We need forward thinking people like you in our organization, people who've actually looked at where technology is headed and gotten a little proactive and gained the skills need to compete today. You don't need to see anyone else your hired!

Nice Tan!

We were scared you'd be another bleeding art school dropout who in between stints as a photographer or a printer had been dealing dope only to come out the ass end of the system and find themselves working hard

....You know, hard like strap-on suki.

Don't forget to mention that you've been freelancing it while looking for the right job, rather than the first thing to land in your lap.

Big payout though!!



Well my redundancy lasted a long time ... just got asked to go back to work as a consultant for twice the money.

Even get my old laptop back.

This job hunting was a hard life ... sitting on my arse watching films and playing on the internet.

Nah and wasn't going to for 6 months. They gave me 3 years money and I already had a stash in the bank so thought I'd have a break.

Maybe I misunderstood your reply, but by "never even tried" I meant you never made the effort to make no effort at all- to ease off the accelerator altogether and change course, while you still can. If you're going back to basically the same job (even if it pays twice as much), you probably haven't made good use of your time off. If I were in your shoes I'd have at least spent the time downloading and listening to some UC Berkeley lectures on Nietzsche ("brief habits"), Heidegger and modern film. (I can pm you some links if you're interested).

Just read a bit about Nietzsche, looks like some heavy shit and pretty cool.

I think I'll just stick to programming computers.
