I have made some progress with my studies, but I am finding that both the job search and going through and clearing out all the stuff I have is cutting into my time.
There is nothing I can do about the job search except streamline the process, and find a job of course. That is a priority right now.
As for clearing out the stuff, I have given up on selling the books and I am now listing all the technical books for free, and I will exchange the non-fiction and fiction books at a used book store for some books I can use such as books on web development.
Being flexible and adapting to changes in your circumstances is necessary to getting through times like these.
