New Appreciation for My Job – Post Unemployment Life

August 17, 2012 by Lady Unemployed

Bus Stop, Witney

I am proud to say that I’m typing this post after my first completed week at work!

It’s been a fantastic feeling having a regular schedule again. And knowing that I never have to deal with the unemployment department again (I hope) is another level of fantastic..ness.

Not to mention having a pay check.

I do have to say… if I had to articulate the “why” part of my period of unemployment, I would say that it was necessary for me to really appreciate having a job. I’m not sure I need five months of job searching agony to understand that, but the point has been severely well taken.


I mark this post as my official turn signal into the road of blogging about employment. So as to avoid getting in serious trouble, I probably will not be talking about my job much and what I do.

Instead, get ready for a lot of posts about pre and post working life, my daily bus commute, downtown characters, and anything else in between.

Let the adventure begin!

Now…where’s that bus?

    Now for the details and new problems and delights.

    I went through the same experience. The job I have now is SO much more rewarding than the one I had before! Best of luck to you!
