In the process of job hunting, and trying to not feel too disappointed but dang, things aren't as good as they could be.

I'm somewhat out of the loop after teaching for 3 years. So much webdev has changed. And I have a hard time finding a reason to LEARN a specific technology without a REASON to... Every company uses their own stuff.

At the same time, companies don't want you if you don't have prior experience with the language and tools, ugh. I've taught myself so much and yet...

Also salaries in KC range from as low as $60,000 to as low as $100,000. And it's hard to get a place to pay me $100,000. Last time I was making $90,000, but I'm probably going to have to take a pay cut.

I need a break from teaching though, it's so much work for not much stability or pay.

I want something easy and routine. Something stable and limited hours every day. Not working on weekends.

I mean I guess I define easy as like... Just building stuff, reading documentation, figuring things out, but not like... Hmm... Not something that is life and death I guess.
