Please tell me there are some of you out there that have managed to escape the evil clutches of the corporate grind? Some days I think jail might be more fulfilling than my job. Today was one of those days. :cryin:

Don't you do web development or something? That's a consultable skill.

Yeah I've done the consulting gig before...the best thing about it was that I didn't have to deal with all the corporate BS that I do now. Maybe I'll check into that again if I get any more fed up with my current gig.

I actually have a few ideas in that regard, but nothing that would generate decent money right away and my current debts aren't going to just disappear.

I was self employed/freelance during the dot com boom up to 9/11, then had to take refuge in corporate cube hell for five years but then escaped back to whacky interwebs startup world. I'd start some stuff on the side and see if you can build it into something. Always be working on that plan B.

Yeah...I hear you. I was on my way to escaping the IT/corporate thing 10 years ago and then the .com bust happened and I took refuge as a full time drone again for safety. One thing I've learned this year is that I've gotten way too complacent.

I need a plan...

It still could be worth it.
