Unemployment Part Six: Getting A Third Wind

Pebbly Beach Kangaroos Australia - 198

I was told early on to focus on getting a second, third, fourth, and fifth wind throughout this process. Sometimes it can be difficult when you’re trapped in the drudgery of the day-to-day comings and goings of the job hunt. Thankfully, there are government-mandated holidays when it’s actually impossible to seek out work and you must - by law - take a break. These are the times to seek out those consecutive winds by escaping the city, and there are cheap ways to do it. Here was mine:

Jervis Bay - 06

Overview: Drive down the coast of Australia camping on gorgeous beaches and petting wild kangaroos.


Borrowed Motorhome - FREE
Gas For Borrowed Motorhome - $35
Food For Four-Day Holiday - $35
National Park Camping Fees - $10


Jervis Bay - 04

Yes, for $80 I was able to get away on the sly, relax, rejuvenate, reflect and prepare my next attack! Follow the trip up with a few tips from my life coaches and away I go upon returning to the city! The best advice I got? “Remember, you’re going to find a job eventually because you have to. You just have to. Therefore, it WILL happen.”

That’s an important thing to keep in mind moving forward. Just relax, take the rejections, learn from them, and remember that I will get a job eventually no matter what. Why? Because I have to.

More on my actual adventures tomorrow!

Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard
on. Any suggestions?

Hello there just came upon your website from Yahoo after I entered in, "Blogger: Don't Escape Reality. Change It." or something similar (can't quite remember exactly). Anyhow, I'm happy I found it simply because your subject
material is exactly what I'm looking for (writing a college paper) and I hope you don't mind if I
gather some information from here and I will of course credit you as the reference.

Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when
opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!

I'm curious to find out what blog system you have been using? I'm experiencing some minor security problems with my latest blog and
I'd like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any recommendations?

Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar
one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses?
If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything
you can advise? I get so much lately it's driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no data backup.
Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
