Yesterday (18Sep2019) was a bad day so I developed a 5-step plan to end it all! All, I say! I tried to make my life better and it didn’t work, so I decided to end it. Where’s bad? What happened? The week started out really well! After breaking my own ban against applying to any … ...

It’s a pretty bad sign when the morning after a job offer you start googling how to suffocate with a plastic bag. Drastic, I know. The worst part is I’ll probably show up bright eyed and bushy tailed that Monday morning. Ugh, I hate this. Don’t I want a job? Isn’t this why I applied … ...

I have been unemployed for 5 weeks now, and my life plan changes by the moment. One minute, I’m fixing my mindset for a pre-planned sabbatical. The next I’m ruminating about why no one chooses me for a job. Then I’m forcing myself to be grateful that I’m making some progress on some applications. Each … ...

I’ve been unemployed for almost five weeks now. As I have mentioned, it’s been quite the reckoning of emotions. I haven’t told too many people about my unemployment status simply because I don’t really have that many personal relationships. Since this draft has been staring me down and I’m feeling a bit discontented at the … ...

Can you believe it’s been 3.5 weeks since I last held a job? I just got my final paystub in the mail. Apparently I had 2 weeks of vacation time. So… winning! I haven’t even checked my account balances. #blessed Musings I’ll be honest; I really thought I would have found another job by now. … ...

Hi, friends. So It’s 5a Wed. I can’t believe it’s only Wednesday, to be honest. Yesterday I was having so many feelings it felt as though a week had passed. Tuesday is the official D-Day in the Jobbing Process. I have it on good scientific authority that Tuesday is The Day recruiters or hiring managers … ...

It’s Thursday afternoon at 2p. It’s my 2nd week of unemployment. Because I don’t feel restful quite yet, I have yet to call this voluntary break a sabbatical. In fact, in a panic last Friday I applied to quite a few more jobs. Nine to be exact. This is in addition to the the seven … ...

Today is Sat, Aug 10. It is 11:58a. I am in my bed wearing the same thing I’ve had on for the last few days. The last time I left the house was Tuesday. Wednesday? Whoa. Has it already been that long! I told myself to get out of the house briefly everyday just to … ...

I am officially unemployed for the second work day in a row. I had a small meltdown yesterday. That was unexpected. Work I thought more people from work would email me to check-in. This morning I got one email from a former co-worker. It was in the style of Where’d you go, Bernadette? (Ever read … ...

At 9a this morning I slowly started to lose my mind. So I went on a walk for about 15 minutes around my apartment complex. Came back. Realized nothing had changed. Decided to open a checking account. Shakes head. Non-sequitur, I know. How did I get to this moment? Well I’m kind of stuck in … ...
