An honest, if somewhat awkward, view back on my six months of unemployment.
A little over four months ago, I applied for an internship with an open source project that I really believe in. I was on unemployment at the time due to the fact that the previous company I worked for declared bankruptcy, and refused to pay me quite a lot of money that was owed. It was a no-win situation, and I was pretty much reduced to designing websites on shady freelancing services.
It’s funny how things work out, actually.
