Even thought this is not a permanent full-time job (then again, what job is permanent?), it gives me an opportunity to re-build my self-confidence and slowly get out of the financial hole I've dug myself. I will most likely not continue this blog, but I will contribute the lessons learned from my unemployment experience on other people's sites. I hope others who have struggled for so long will be given an opportunity to contribute their skills and experience to a company/organization willing to reward them for their contributions.
Good luck to all in search of their calling.
