Chapter 5 – Contracting

This chapter covers my first jobs as an hourly contractor working for myself as a freelance nuclear consultant. While the pay is high and I saw many different locations, I incurred many travel and living expenses. Due to the transitory and migrant nature of this kind of work, I have sacrificed the steady accumulation of savings and the acquisition of close friends. Time has shown that in my case, the long-term cost may not have been worth it. Who is to say though?
