I have a feeling that I will appreciating my osmotic education in computing, carpentry, plumbing and general handymannery. This is bad news. I have some savings, nothing near six month's worth, and nothing in the stock market. I studied anthropology in college and that is a field that is highly recession proof*, but since I currently work in a field that is basically a luxury, I am reasonably certain that I will be considered expendable. At least I'll be free to explore my writing and get more reading done.
* Sarcasm is another recession proof field.
