As of Friday, I have joined the ranks of the unemployed. For the past three years I have worked at my “day job” in IT while working on GamingAngels.com at night. The day job came to an end on Friday. The company has decided to outsource IT.
So now I find myself unemployed and thinking about what it is that I want to do. In the meantime what I am doing is keeping a schedule. No late sleeping in for me!
Here is my schedule:
8-10am – upload news and work on GA (answer emails etc)
10-11 am job hunt
11-12 am workout
1-3 work on GA
3-4 job hunt
4 and on ..play time. Work on games for GA or Code the new site
I think a schedule is important to keeping myself motivated and not lazy. I already see that I’m going to have to go out and get bagels or something small to eat for breakfast. My tummy is making some interesting noises. lol
I’m also contemplating going back to my coding roots and working on some project ideas I have had. Someone on twitter suggested trying to make an iPhone app. Not a bad idea.
We’ll see where this length of unemployment takes me. I know that I’m going to continuously work on improving myself and my skills. So while my opinions of being unemployed may vary as time goes by. I’m pretty optimistic right now and I love that I’m using this time to learn and better myself.
