I have been between contracts at work for a while now. Sometimes it can get quite slow, and dull so I have to do what I can to keep busy. Even if it means reading books on new technologies. I don't mind because I enjoy learning about new and exciting technologies. I get to choose the subject, which makes it even better.
I got a couple phone calls over the last few days in regards to potential contracts. This morning I got a call for a contract with a position that looks like a good fit for me. It is close to home so the commute should be decent. I might even be able to ride my bike, or jog.
