Out of work? Take a trip (even if you have to hitchhike). Start an art project. Get that Mohawk you always wanted but were afraid would interfere with your career. This is a great time to write a book. Get laid! Do something dammit! Life is short and you have been wasting your time making other people wealthy with your own blood, sweat, and tears.
Try starting an income producing blog or website. It isn't easy, but it just might pay off in the long run.
