I think I'll go with Kineo. His explanation is way less complicated. Big Grin

The technique is this....

1) Go to the deep end
2) Walk to the edge
3) Hold your nose
4) Jump
5a) Swim
5b) Sink

Good luck.

I'm with DLJ on this. However, I would add that working at the regular job is like riding a bicycle - it's a skill you don't actually lose, it just gets a tad rusty.

I've gone from regular -> consulting -> regular -> self-employed -> regular -> laid off ...
and the experience has always been worried/nervous/oh, right, I can do this.

The kinda job that doesn't involve meeting people. Y'know like a Mountain-top
Tent Putter-Upper.

Such jobs are hard to come by. Applications have to be made in person... bring your own equipment (includes mountain).

I carry with me all of the equipment necessary to pop a tent at any given time. People sometimes mistake this tent for a mountain. Hazards of the business I suppose...

RE: Fear of getting a regular job
Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm dealing with it as head on as I can. I don't respond well to medication. Last one I took three weeks ago landed me in hospital. Turns out I'm allergic to anything that works with dopamine receptors. If I go crazy, tough shite for me. :/

I dunno what job I'd go for, honestly, it's been that long. What I'll be taking will be paying the bills and saving up for school across the country. I want to go into film production.

Perhaps you could produce a few porn videos. Then you'd get experience and money!
