Today's Supreme Mathematics: Knowledge Wisdom

Peace....

Y'all.... I lost my job. I'm pissed but not really pissed. I'd been working there for 13 years, so I had a semblance of job security. HA! But the job was beneath me. I took this job in 2004 because I wanted to get back into the working world. My 1st husband died in 2003, and when he died I wasn't working. I started this job a year after my late husband died, just to get back to the regularity of going to work every day. I only meant to be there 6 months... Then the economy tanked, and I was stuck there. I had been applying for jobs the whole time I was employed. Here is the funny thing about Georgia... They don't want to consider you for a job if you have a job. I know... go figure.

I say this job was beneath me, because it is a job that only requires a high school diploma. I have 2 degrees; one of which is a doctorate! I was REALLY wasting my time there. But as much as I felt like it was beneath me... you know what is even more beneath me? Being homeless and hungry. Not being able to pay my bills and have stuff... To have to live with my mother.... The job allowed me to remain autonomous. I'd rather work, than not work.


So this is my mathematics.... After taking a week to plot all kind of evilness against my former employer, including a voodoo doll I made in his likeness... I have gotten to the point where I have organized a job search. Georgia unemployment is 14 weeks. 14 WEEKS!!! That's 3 1/2 months!!! and its not a lot of money. I will be living close to the cuff. I have done the Knowledge. I've decided my next job will make use of the degrees I earned. That's the most important thing for me. What was the point of all my education? It took a long time to earn and I am still paying for the doctorate. I've made a list of the places where I would like to work. I'm going to use the resource of the unemployment office to do the things that I cannot do at home. Like make copies and such. I'm not too good to use the unemployment office. My actions will be rooted in the Knowledge that I am a qualified applicant for all the jobs I'm applying. The Understanding will come with the manifestation of my new job. I won't be willing to take another shit job until week 12. Then all bets are off. I've got grown woman bills to pay....


Peace

Peace Earth! I empathize. I lost my last job a month before I graduated from college. I am now about to enter my last month of unemployment, so I'm stressed out. I have two degrees too (associate's and bachelor"). I don't feel like I should settle for jobs that will pay me what I could have got not having a degree, but now that I am on my last month of uemployment I am reconsidering. My rent is crazy expensive and I can't break my lease! So yeah I feel your pain. Good luck in your job search! Getting on through someone that works for the employer you want to work for seems to be the quickest way. Good luck in your job search!

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your job ...
But on the bright side, you get a chance to start off new
And have at least 13 years of work experience coupled with 2 college degrees
Being the great Earth that you are, i know that you will be successful !!!
