In the morning , while most will still be asleep, I will be on the road heading home to the Carolina’s. I am sure it will be adventurous as parts of I95 are closed. Guess I’ll cross over to I85 to come in the back way through Durham, which is fine, as long as I get home.
The reason for this trip, is my move to another state was an epic fail. I thought a different location would better my chances of finding employment. I found out it is the same here as in my home state. It is really hard to find a decent job, any job. I was overqualified for retail and restaurants, and lacking IT skills for positions based on my degrees, which I thought were covered in my college programs.
I have worked since I was 15. The recession really took me on a Hallelujah ride. I like thousands of others , lost it all! Career, Marriage, Home, Health and Relationships.
I was actually told not to blog about my lack of employment as it could hurt me from getting hired. I laughed hysterically. Hello, two years and not a spit in my cup, no offer in sight. The conversations my brain has had with me on why I don’t have a job, are nothing in comparison to conversations of well meaning individuals who think I am being choosy and lazy. Just Not True!
Now before you scratch your head and wonder , well how can you move if your broke, I was gifted my travel expenses, in return for free home staging and painting for an old friend. Then once I moved, I stayed with someone i knew.
I truly want a job, and I’m not giving up. I stand in faith it will come, when the time is right. And Oh, this is kinda funny, I eat very little and cant loose weight, my doc said my body thinks its in starvation mode , so when I eat , yup, stores it all as FAT! LOL
Mmmmm, I’m having raspberry and white chocolate creamer with my Coffee, sure is good today! I’m just waiting! God will provide!
Isaiah 41:10 New International Version (NIV)
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
