Four years productively unemployed

It's coming up to four years since I became unemployed. I'd been in a job of some sort since school and had thought that being on staff with a PhD offered some security.

But after four years of contract (2+2) I failed to win a third. And I was out in the cold, looking for billable hours.

Luckily that erstwhile employer needed me - a lot - but they also needed me to show I had other clients, so that I truly was an independent contractor.

So here I am, drawing money from at least three companies and no shortage of things to do.

I don't know what the future holds, but this four years of being "unemployed" has been very productive.
