    This is just a small rant. Technically this time it is self inflicted. But hey. I have 2 interviews atm. Been unemployed.. for .. 6 days now. Its only going to get longer. I have had a few jobs so far.. but no gaps for a long time. I hope i get one soon >< The longer it doesnt happen the more ill feel like eating. and sleeping. I hope.
    This society we live in is silly. Stress of obtaining a job thats worth while. If i ever god rich i would start my own company and employ all the ppl i know. One big happy place. *sigh.

    Good luck to all those who are also trying to find work in this time. *fingers crossed for you all.

    Check with your unemployment office and find out if there are any job fairs coming to your area.. Where I live they have been going county to county helping people get employment..

    I've been unemployed for going on 6 months now, it's frustrating and if there's one thing that work does, it keeps your brain ticking over. While I'm at home I'm getting even more depressed because I have too much time to think.

    So I'm crossing my fingers for all of us that something comes up soon!

    Lost my Job last week. Paid real well and now I've got a month or so that I'll survive and then it's bye bye to all that I own. It's just the natural progression of my life. My wife of 21 years walked out on me a few months ago. An almost total surprise. We were pretty neutral in our relationship, then WHAM, she was gone. It's OK though. I've reunited with an old friend from back in the day. 151 Rum and coke. It got me through a lot of lonley nights when I was a lot younger.Fleetwood Mac may have said it best. OH WELL...

    Lost the best job i ever had about 5 months ago because i took medical leave to deal with some problems (suicidal depression) and while I was on leave they found somebody who would do my job for less. Not as well as me, but for less money. I'm sure there was something massively illegal about that, but instead of fighting it i just started taking the UI checks, which got me thru for a while, but now, i'm faced with a dilemma.
    I've been offered a well paying job, but it is JUST far enough away that it would require relocation (or a 3 hour commute each way, every day), and I can't afford relocation- i have less than $2,000 to my name in total. Pitiful, i know. The company wants to hire me but they can't/won't afford to assist with relocation.
    Plus there's the fact that i finally found love, but it's with someone who is not in a position to relocate with me. And I'm the type, that given the choice between love or money, will always take the love, because money comes and goes, true love doesn't. So now I've decided to look for any job at all (except fast food, and that's not a pride thing, it's the fact that working fast food pays less than collecting unemployment, so you do the math). So, other than fast food, i'll take any job as long as it pays more than my UI checks. ANY job. No luck so far. So many people are unemployed here that i actually got turned down when i tried to VOLUNTEER at an animal shelter. They told me so many people were volunteering just to have something to do with their day, that they had nothing left for me to do.

    I hope in 2012 the whole economy dies off and money becomes meaningless. Then I'll be able to live the life i want, instead of the one others want for me.

    I've been without a job for two months. In and out of hospitals. Lack of motivation :dunno:

    Yup..been out of work for a little more than 2 months and have about 2 months left of money to pay the bills i have every month and then i dont know WHAT im going to do. Def. lack of motivation over here as well...I really just dislike work and am pretty lazy when unmotivated.

    But much like desperate and depressed being jobless for me seems to sink me further and further into depression. I dont have motivation to do things i enjoy creatively like music/writing/drawing because im worried about needing a job very soon. But i also think and think adn think and think and generally just am very restless as a result.

    I guess if i get out of this rut unharmed it will be for the better. I dont think ill see work in the same light ever again...when the job starts getting dull and repetitive i can remember being jobless and find some way to rejuvenate myself i suppose.

    There is nothing more frustrating than looking for job. I am sick of it. I've got invited to many interviews but no luck. Yes i have a lack of motivation but still trying to find one. I hate those capitalist bastards who want you to be extra motivated and rip your ass of work to make them more and more rich. Its slavery nothing more. I have graduated at college and still can't get a job for 300EUR. Fuck this system,fuck everything...
