Blog of the jobless
Haven't posted in a few days, that's because any happy fun time I wanted to put into this blog lately to make it more interesting has been sucked out by my search for a job. The phrase of the day children is JOB HUNTING SUCKS!

I have an interview to volunteer, yes, that's right, volunteer at a hospital tommorow. Why volunteer you ask? Well, a really good friend reccomend I do it, (and I'm really not doing anything else anyway) and I sort of thought it might be useful because then I can use them as references and I can get some more experience that I can put on my resume. I have to volunteer for four hours a week, so I'm thinking 2 hours a day.

I've been faxing and emailing my ass off to jobs. I watched Morgan Spurlock's 30 days last night on F/X and it was pretty entertaining, and no you CANNOT live on mininum wage. Glad he reminded us. I really don't want to go back to Burger King. SOMEONE HIRE ME! (end rant)

Here's a little more on the special at Meat-eating leftist .

Next up, links to my favorite blogs. Stay tuned...

    Okay, Dedra - I added your blog to my list of links. Now it's your turn to put a link to my blog on your blog. How many times can I use the word blog in this post? Argh.

    Btw, don't get all bent out of shape about the publishers - you won't know what would happen unless you start submitting stuff (and getting it critiqued over and over again by a crit group). It's that phrase: "You'll never know unless you try." With writing though you need to add, "and try and try and try and try..."

    As for job hunting, good luck. I'm trying to find myself a part-time one right now, and as you know, the job market in this state sucks. :p

    Job hunting goes so far past sucking I can't even begin to cover it. I am in a similar boat to yours and I'm at the point where I would take a job at Burger King, if they would just friggin' hire me.
    And if you want a list of places that will publish you writing as an ebook, let me know. I am working towards getting a manuscript together (probably be next year the way my life is going now) but the 3 sites I sent emails to were all incredibly encouraging and friendly. It made a nice change after numerous "thank you, but we hired someone who best fit our needs" letters.
