Well, I've had a few days — and a few therapy sessions — to think about this unemployment thing. So far, the best way I can describe it is to use the cliched "emmotional roller coaster."
You'd think I was going through menopause with my mood swings. One minute, I'm all "Hellz Yeah! I finally get to leave this job!" The next minute I'm "Oh my god, I'll never be able to afford Happy Hour again; I'm going to have to work retail."
I've applied to what seems like a hundred jobs (actually it's probably more around 15) and I haven't heard so much as an e-mailed reply. My resume may not be up to par, but I can't look at it anymore. And every one that I show it to, wants to change it a different way. I've tried all their ways, and still... nothing.
Have any of you lost your jobs and decided it was time for a different route? I'd love to hear about your experience.
