Down in the Dumps

I haven’t written much lately because frankly there hasn’t been much to write about.

“Today I got up, made some oatmeal, cried a little, watched a few episodes of Fringe, sent out more resumes, cried some more, ect. Latter. Rinse. Repeat.”

Fascinating stuff, I know.

Job hunting, pardon my French, sucks. I get why people who already have a job when they are looking for a new one have a better chance of success than those who are currently unemployed and looking because they are not as desperate. And boy oh boy have I been desperate these days. I reek of it. Money has been a huge stressor to the point where I just don’t leave the apartment at all in order to avoid spending any of it. Of course, this leads to some pretty bad cabin fever, which couple that with some graphic Sci Fi television, and I’m having weird dreams all around.

I had saved up for this acting class over the summer that starts on Wednesday. I think working on a specific project will do me a lot of good, even if it’s just to get out of the house.

Now that the show is over, I feel like I’m at this weird crossroad. I think the next couple of days will be critical in figuring out what the hell I’m doing with my life.

We’ll see.

    • No, but thank you for mentioning it.

  2. I hope that this works itself out soon, my dear.

    We’re still job hunting too, and yeah, it sucks! Most of it is about keeping up the morale! Check her out, she’s amazing! http://www.jobjenny.com/

    • Thanks Adam!

  3. Ha! I can relate. I do, however, have a job, and I’m still fairly desperate, seeking a way out. I think gratitude is increasing and desperation decreasing. However, my loans are about to exit their grace period. I’m fighting to kick desperation and stress in the face to keep them far away. Take a look at a peek of my job🙂 http://theleftsidepoets.wordpress.com/2011/09/16/what-your-waiterwaitress-wants-to-tell-you/
