Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
Never did worry about you not getting a new job, I believe you've shown you're competent enough.
I have to admit though that I'm a bit curious as to why you quit your old job before having a new one.
Something must've gone pretty awry if you do that.
I was just fed up.
I've been doing the same thing for almost three years and it was pretty frustrating.
Most of all having a coworker who is always stressed and angry and wants you to code how he does even though he's never touched a programming book and hasn't learned anything new in the last twenty years or so (to be fair, I'd be stressed and angry too if I didn't know what the hell I was doing every day).
So anyway, I disliked going to work so much that I didn't want to spend another extra day there.
My bank account/expenses ratio allows me to sit at home for a couple of months and the chances of me not finding a job (any job) within that time are pretty much non-existent
And now, it seems, I don't have to sit at home at all.
The Martian was on TV last week and somehow this quote comes to my mind:
“I’ve been thinking about laws on Mars. There’s an international treaty saying that no country can lay claim to anything that’s not on Earth. By another treaty if you’re not in any country’s territory, maritime law aplies. So Mars is international waters. Now, NASA is an American non-military organization, it owns the Hab. But the second I walk outside I’m in international waters. So Here’s the cool part. I’m about to leave for the Schiaparelli Crater where I’m going to commandeer the Ares IV lander. Nobody explicitly gave me permission to do this, and they can’t until on board the Ares IV. So I’m going to be taking a craft over in international waters without permission, which by definition… makes me a pirate. Mark Watney: Space Pirate.”
I am endeavoring, ma'am, to construct a mnemonic memory circuit using stone knives and bearskins.
