It's only been a week and 2 days and I'm starting to get frustrated on the job search. I applied for Unemployment, but it seems like the State would rather people end up on the street than actually have to pay them while they are looking for a new job. Thankfully I STILL live with my Mom, although I'm hoping that the next job I am able to find (if ever!) pays me enough to be able to move out!

I have been working out more (30 minutes yesterday, HoopFusion class tonight) but the sleep habits haven't been where they need to be. I've gotten used to sleeping in until 9:30-10:00. I need to break that habit QUICKLY!

I know things will eventually work out, as they always do, but in the meantime, it's quite frustrating. I suppose I could go back to Manpower (who I got my previous job through), but there's this thing called "pride". I don't want to have to go in and say, "Okay, I failed at that job, find me another one!" I'll give it the rest of this week and if nothing's moving by then, I guess I'll just have to go in with my tail between my legs and see what they can do for me next. Hopefully I'll be able to find a job where I'm not WAAAY under-employed and under-paid. That was a main contributor to my attitude that resulted in me being dismissed sooner that I would have liked...

Have a great day, all!

    I know it can bne challenging to get a good paying job, exspecially considering a person's skills or age. They don't say it, but iut seems that way. Hang in there!

    Know that you are not alone - there are many of us that need jobs or better paying jobs. Myself I am now retired (been a housewife for 30 years now so that job just does not stop)

    Hold you head up hi - do what you need to do to find that job - trust in the Lord - and all will fall in place. On saying that it is easier said than done.

    Come to my sparkpage and look for the group Changing my lifestyle is a challenge - have a look at the group (we are small in numbers) and if you are interested we would love to have you join us - lots of encourage on this group with pretty much everyone participating every couple of days.
