Insanity is Doing the Same Thing Over and Over, Expecting a Different Result (but Persistence Sometimes Pays Off)


For anyone who follows me, I'm probably not stating anything new here, since you probably already know this from my previous posts, but ... For the past year, I've been unemployed and looking for a job the traditional way (hitting job-posting sites such as indeed.com and business networking ones such as LinkedIn). I've even gone door to door, CV in hand, to the local businesses in the suburb in which I live. Nothing has worked in terms of getting any responses or leads.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting the same result. (I would know, having had plenty of turns for the worse in my life.) I have been ready to give up on them a number of times and seek alternatives since I've had no success whatsoever with them. However, persistence usually pays off, eventually.

This morning, two people have inquired about my availability and salary expectations. (At this advanced stage of my prolonged unemployment, those are pretty much "I expect to be paid for the work I do; the rest is negotiable".) I know it's not much, but it's a start. I'm not getting my hopes up and counting my chickens before they hatch, though. I'm still going to keep looking. However, I'm expanding the area over which I cast my net and am including sites like froog.co, which pay crypto to people who do freelance jobs. If I get some work that way, that will be ideal, since I'm looking to increase my holdings in ATOM and DAI and acquire some CRO, so that I can unbank myself and go full crypto.

Anywho; I need to grab some breakfast, go for my daily walk earning sweatcoins and get cracking on finishing some Website work for the company that employs me as an animal handler/exerciser on weekends.

Snark out!

Great White Snark

I am currently unemployed, having quit my S/W & Web Dev job due to COVID-related health issues. I'm hoping to go full Crypto to earn a living, not go back to an 08:00-18:00 grind. Unsigned music producer; snarky; white; balding; smashes Patriarchy some.

Snark Attack: Random Musings from The GWS

Until Nov 2020, I worked as a SW/Web dev, with Java (blargh!) & Python (woot!). I'm currently milking faucets, writing for crypto to stake/invest and dabbling in play-to-earn games. I work part-time with animals. ZA FTW. Sadly, my cerebellum and medulla oblongata aren't Einsteinian in proportion. However, I possess a Brobdingnagian vocabulary and get by with being a barbigerous logophile. I can probably write you into bed. Banner image copyright The Guardian/Shutterstock
