I'm one of the lucky ones.
I lost my job at America's hottest digital agency but found better work--and better money--on the outside.
I've worked everyday but about a dozen since March.
One day last October, I was freelancing at a place.
Making my day rate.
I had to head out to an edit.
And I left my power-source plugged in at my desk.
By the time I got back about a week or two later, my power source was gone.
I'm out a power source.
Today, I'm wrapping up at that same power-source-swiping place. Six weeks. Good money.
Still, I couldn't finagle a replacement power source.
I'm minus one.
But I'm keeping score.
