It has not been a great couple of weeks. A little over two weeks ago, the relationship I had with the most wonderful woman I have ever met ended. Then last Monday I lost my job.
This sucks. And the worst part is it really was my fault on all counts. Oh, I had bad luck and good intentions, but at the end of the day though I really tried all counts I could have done better on all counts. This is my fault, and I accept the fact that all of the things that have gone wrong in my life I could have done differently. It hurts knowing that.
So though I did begin looking for work again last week, I really spent most of it moping. No more. Time to get busy again. Time to get hopping. I know I'm just another unemployed, overweight, middle-aged guy looking for work in a time when the economy sucks. I realize lots of people won't want me just for those reasons. I know I need to do better. That I need to learn from my errors and move on.
I have some resources at my command, some money I'd been saving for retirement. I qualify for unemployment. I can make it for a while. I have to make it.
