Just got rejected by my top choice. Got three phone interviews in. The good news is that I won’t be commuting to New York, in all likelihood. The bad news is that of the remaining two, one I have not heard from one in some time, so I’m guessing that’s a no go at this point, and the fourth is the job I lined up if all else fails. It’s not one I really want to take.
The conclusion I’m coming to in all this is that it sucks to work for someone else. Regardless of what happens from here, I need to start developing side income. Long term I don’t want to have to depend on others to keep my head above ground.
The icing on the cake of all this is we could end up getting a bonafide hurricane coming through these parts. Winds here wouldn’t top 80mph, in all likelihood, but these storms tend to drop a metric crap load of rain, and bring winds high enough to knock out power. My basement is dependent on electricity in order not to become an indoor swimming pool, and I can’t stomach the thought, right now, of writing off 250 bucks worth of food in my fridge and freezer.
