in the fire

And it left a huge hole. They literally didn't know what to do with themselves without work filling their lives. They weren't at all clear on what they were going to put in its place to fill the hole.

This would never happen to my friend. Nor me. Never. If either of us were ever financially set for life, the reaction would be like, "Wow! Now I will finally have enough time to work on my stuff!"

I figured I'd give it a day or so before commenting.. the big question is, are you getting all of your work on your personal stuff done while you have more free time and are looking for a job?

Although I've been enjoying life, I've been busy, and my personal to-do list is just as long as ever, it's the week before leaving for the burn and I'm in a 'last minute prep' mode.

And, I've put much more effort into learning how to code better. Sure, it's "only" PHP, but I'm trying to do it "right" and take my time doing it. Still, I only get 1-4 hours most days to work on things.

Weekends still fall into doing things with other people.. and that is a joy.

Yep. I've been coding up a storm, and I've got various other projects that I'm ticking off the list.
