    Good god man! No wonder you're depressed. I've been off since Christmas and I'm only now bored. Hopefully have a gig soon to sort me out though.

      I just got nervous, I'll keep looking for contracts, but due to my limited experience I might have to go perm for a while.


        I spent mine in Asia for 10 weeks. 10 days back in the country had an offer from one of the big 4.

          Funnily enough I only sold one of those hippy campers last year. Didn't do much hippy chick shagging, though.

          I'd kind of forgotten about this thread - I got an offer after a day and a half and ended up cramming loads of things to do into three days.

          I've had a week in between projects since and I was good and did a cert.

          I still found the whole thing strange even with work to go back to and It's going to take me a while to get a big enough war chest (that isn't really our house deposit as I've mentioned before) so I can really start enjoying my time out. Credit card paid off with my next dividend though and then I'm debt free.
