I am in the state of decision making. You know, that thing you have to do as a grown up that can change the course of things for you. The little decisions that can become big decisions. The big decisions that can turn into even bigger decisions.
Okay, I’m rambling.
I am considering a job that allows me to work from home. In fact, everyone who works for this particular company, works from home. It is a permanent, full time job with benefits. The pay is about the same (a little more, in fact) than what I’m making now, too.

Some advice is about as helpful as this piece of paper.
When I first started my blog, I invited anyone to write me and tell me their unemployment story. And I heard from one person in particular that has a very similar to story as my own (and probably yours) and she allowed me to share this with all of you. I was very grateful for this considering I don’t want to be the only standing on this podium bemoaning my life’s current state all alone.
And her story touched a nerve with me considering all the snarky implications I receive from people about how I am not doing enough to get a job. But it was nice to know that I am not alone in hearing this awful stereotype of what the unemployed are doing (or are NOT doing) to find a job.

Apparently hope is that way. So, that’s where I’m going.
Overall this has not been an easy week. I had several ups and downs and two days in a row so far I ended up in tears, I snapped at family members, and remained too long in my “Eoyore” mood.
But instead of writing about all of that, I decided to write about something positive for once (I know, weird huh?).
Today, I feel like I have truly done my best (hush to the person in the back that is about to say otherwise).
I’ll say it again: I have done my best today to find a job.
Now, someone can say that unless I am applying to every job I see, even if includes licking the floor clean, it obviously isn’t enough, but today I am standing up to say otherwise.
