Black Friday and I feel Blue!

Friday, November 23, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving to American friends. I had a nice walk along the boardwalk in Summerside, PEI this afternoon - Nov. 23... and it was about 10C... very pretty walk. I managed to get a quick impromptu meeting with my job mentor. She said I looked stressed. How perceptive is that. I told her about the past week and she asked me if I was even ready and capable of going to work, she said maybe I shouldn't be looking.,. but she didn't tell me what to do for money...She also agreed that my sis was a bit$$ and my mother shouldn't be looking at getting any money from me either.. At cards last nite, my mother's friend was telling me about she she works at a call centre, and the mentor told me, "You're better than that, don't do it". When I told my mother that, she had it all figured out, I would be making $400 a week and it's a lot better than nothing and I could STILL look for work while I worked... Between a rock and a hard place.

Then I was helping someone else nail asphalt shingles onto outside stairs to prevent them from being too slippery once the snow and ice come... which is supposed to be Sunday... glad we had company today, to relieve the tension here.

These back and chest pains are certainly not my imagination, but what if I go to the hospital? I don't know what to do and why I can't deal with this crap.

    Good luck with your job search. Hope all goes well. Get the chest and back pains checked out, it is better to know what is wrong than to make your self sick worrying about it.

Hope you have a wonderful day today!

    There is a job out there that is something you will enjoy and that will pay you at least semi-well. Decide what it is you really enjoy doing and apply accordingly. Don't take a job just because someone tells you you should. Hopefully there is something available where you live that you will enjoy doing. That definitely makes it much easier to get up and go to work each day. Enjoying what you do is half the battle. I don't know the answers for you, but will be praying for you. God does have a plan for you.
Blessings and hugs,
Helen

    Sweetie, i know how you feel because i was stressed today as well and i didnt know what to do until a friend of mine told me that i should try and get out more. I told her that for me to do that i have to run away because my house is my prison. I hope that you are feeling better soon because I would love to meet you in person soon. We are best friends forever hun. Take care of yourself and i promise i will to. Dont try working for a call center hun because it is very stressful. The people you have to call likes to bitch at ya. I use to work for the ATLANTIC CALL CENTER in Truro and was bitched at everyday.
Andways take care

    I hope you find a job. I think working at a call center is okay. You will be inside and talking all day. If 400 a week sounds good, it IS good. Other people need to manage their own affairs. Like Survivor61 says though, you won't be working this weekend and you can use the time to devise a game plan. I'm looking for a job too. I have interviewed to work at home and will attend a job fair in Atlanta to work in a foreign country. I hope something comes through.

    emoticon Back and chest pains could be stress, but I wouldn't leave it to chance. If you can't afford to go to a doctor, please try to find a free clinic. There are usually some sponsored by a local church. And a lot of people like to put their two cents in when someone else needs a job. Please take a minute to yourself to destress, it's okay. Your problaly not going to a job in the next day or few minutes, but you can destress and say it's ok. I'm not going to worry and God can worry for me. Then the next morning get up have some coffe or tea and get some paper and make a game plan. Even if you've already applied for a job at previous places it's okay to go back and re-apply. It being close to Christmas a lot of places are looking to hire extra help. So hit the malls, mini malls, Wal-mart, Target, you get the picture. Don't expect ful-time work. Retail rarely starts anyone off with full time. I worked in it my whole life. Grocery stores if you apply in them, try applying in the sub deptpartments you'll mare than likely get more hours. Good luck
