An explanation of sorts

I guess I owe everyone here an explanation for my last post. First and foremost, I have not committed suicide over the crap that has happened to me. Here's a little summary: in two days, it will be 2 months since I had a job. That's right my lovelies, I have lost my job, and this economy can totally kiss my ass. Though trust me, I have handled this the best anyone can handle becoming unemployed. I have been catching up on sleep, catching up with friends, and doing a lot of traveling.

Of course, in between I have been looking for a job, just enough to be constantly reminded that no one thinks I am good enough to hire for anything. Looking for a job in this economy makes the day go by really fast, and it totally sucks. I have not gotten too bored though, because I have mastered the art of passing time by running errands and visiting friends.

I have also been traveling a lot more, and trying to visit friends whom I haven't seen in a long time, and even driving instead of flying to save money. Luckily gas is cheap these days, so it works out really well. Next week, I leave for Europe, and will be there for a month. It's my way of giving the economy the finger. I will of course continue to look for a job while there to make sure that I never forget the fact that I am unemployed and so I do not fool myself into thinking that I am actually on a relaxing trip.

Also, here's a shout out to everyone who said to me: "is this really a good time to be traveling?" You're just jealous, and you should keep your unsolicited advice to yourself! I am sick of people trying to bring me down. I am feeling as good as one can in this unfortunate unexpected unemployment time, so try not to rain on my already tired parade.

Life is good. I am not wasting too much time watching daytime television, and I am channeling my anger really positively. Most people now love me more, as I am making more time for them, and I actually have time to be a good friend. So here's a shoutout to my previous employer: thanks for giving me my freedom, and opening my eyes to that fact that there's a lot more to life than working in the office till midnight!

Kranki - Exactly, I am not doing anything irresponsibly, so I have nothing to feel bad about. I'm going to DOOOO EEEEET :)

Kim - I'm not looking for a job here. Well, I am, but this visit is not for that. Though if something comes along, why not!

Daisy - Thanks! I'm not worried about people, just annoyed by some of them!
