I got kicked to the curb at the end of October 2017 after a long stretch of full time contract work. The company I had worked for sold out and the new company deemed me expendable. It was a shock and made me evaluate a lot in the weeks that followed on spending habits and saving habits. It is amazing how you adjust to having no money coming in. I am fortunate in that I had a good network of contacts that enabled me to snag some work that will begin in February but will require me to be away from home and back in the field (for this think oilfield work). I was wondering if anyone else had similar experiences and how you felt and adjusted. I had previously wanted to visit Montreal in April but now that may change to August at best if possible. Thanks for the time on this gents.
