Following up from my last post:
1) my job contract got extended by one month
2) last week, I had an interview for an interesting but fairly challenging position
3) the position I have now will be interviewing for a one year contract soon so I applied for that along with around 30 other people
4) even if 2 and 3 don't work out, I am feeling more optimistic for myself. The fatigue I mentioned earlier seems to be related to an unresolved medical problem I had last year and recovered from which suddenly returned. My doctor has IDed it as an inner ear issue and I hope to be feeling better soon now that I have a diagnosis.
