My name is Chris. I’m unemployed and I live with my parents.
Last year I chose to leave my well-paid and secure job at Sky Sports in search of a new career that inspired and provided personal fulfilment.
It was the hardest decision of my life as it meant starting over again. It also meant I had to swallow my pride and move back home with my mum and dad in Nottingham. Not ideal when you’re in your 30s.
This blog chronicles the fallout of that decision, sharing my emotions and experiences from the last few months, gradually bringing events right up to the present day.
It also provides an ideal opportunity for me to use my somewhat wasted degree in journalism and write about some other things that soothe the pain of unemployment.
P.S. Props to the How To Be Jobless blog that inspired me to create this page.
