I’ve been a little down the past few days, and I just haven’t found much time to blog, but I thought it was about time to talk about the work situation once again. As of Friday afternoon I have been laid off. This is both a good thing and a bad thing.
Let’s start with the good. I’m no longer stuck on 3rd shift, and I’m definitely not sitting here bitching about it anymore. I’m not working for an asshole boss who doesn’t know the difference between an employee and a slave. I’ve finally got the free time I need to dedicate to other things such as my blogging.
As for the bad, even though I’m laid off, I can’t draw my unemployment right now while I find another job. Because I worked as a temp, when we had vacation weeks at the 4th of July and Christmas, we were filed for unemployment. This means that I have to draw off of that year until July. Considering most of the previous year I babysat from my home, repaired computers, and helped take care of my aging grandparents, all of my earnings where “under the table” and I couldn’t draw anything. So I still have very little income coming in until I find another full time job.
Basically it’s time for me to enjoy about a week of being unemployed before I jump out there and start searching again. Cross your fingers, and let’s all hope I can find something good.
