unemployment here i come
it's been ten days since i last wrote something here. i guess that's pretty standard for me, because when i find out that i'm being laid off, i tend to fall off the face of the internet for a while. i suppose i'll manage one way or another.
jobs in this area are sparse, and i'm not really up for relocation. i've got an excellent place now, low rent, lots of property, beautiful area, heck, i'm home. i've sent out about 10 resumes and applications so far, and i've not heard anything. once again, i guess that's pretty standard. i was unemployed for 9 months before i found the job i've got now (until the end of the month, at least), and in those 9 months i think i got three (yeah, that's right, 3) interviews. why is it that i'm always "overqualified"? right, what do you want me to forget? i'll forget it, i swear i will!
sometimes i wonder if it was worth it going to school all those years and getting those scraps of paper that say i'm a "master" at something. yeah, i've got an education, copious amounts of student loans to pay back, myriad talents and abilities, but yet i'm to be unemployed once again. maybe some day i'll have a job that's got some security behind it. i'm a good worker; i'm rarely sick; i'm multi-talented; i'm organized; i'm personable; i'm excellent in customer service and teaching; i'm a nerd who can explain nerdy stuff to people who don't even know how to turn on a computer. what is it that makes me so unemployable?
right, i guess it's time to fade away now. i'll try to keep up on this a little better from now on between all the job interviews i'll have (wish me luck, eh?).
