Silver linings, etc

(photo from

This has been a hard week. Turns out, I was wrong in my assumption that I would just bounce back after getting canned. My egomaniacal idea that my vast skillset would translate easily into the non-profit sector proved false when I realized that I don't really have a skillset. That superhot guy is avoiding me again and I think it's because my ex badmouthed me. The bf has been working 6 days/week to make up for my lost income and I miss him. Brad. Heath. Republicans.

It's probs just my hysterical uterus and I just need to buck up.

At least I still have all my lady parts. And I have a truly awesome, selfless bf, who hasn't complained once about all the extra hours he's working. I'm still able to line up job interviews and I have another one tomorrow. I get to spend some real quality time with my beta fish, Gene McGranagan. Turns out, my neighborhood is a lot of fun to walk around while everyone else is at work. Netflix. My RSS reader. Facebook.

Update: I was wrong; I am FUCKING AWESOME. I let the situation get me down and I let the dirty, underhanded tactics of my petty former employer make me think that I'm less than I am. Anyone know a good lawyer?

It's ok! You will find something, just hang in there. The economy is doing really bad right now and we are in a recession, no matter how much they deny it. Also the other day an article from a great website, (which i should start saving and posting so everyone can read) was saying that the top 7 jobs for 2008 were all jobs you did not need a college degree for. #1 was waiters.
Thats sad, it shows you how the economy will get. My advise is to get a job, any job that is in any field as long as it's a salary job. Even consider a bank teller, you meet a lot of people and good benefits. Then keep searching for a better job, but just hang in there.
You Can Do It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is so easy to wallow in self-pity, so it is good to see that you have some perspective on your situation. Keep your head up.
