Day 17 - something that's had a huge impact on me lately

Day 17 - post a picture of something that has had a huge impact on you lately

Well, being unemployed, here's a pic of the latest numbers from Pennsylvania...

I've worked some side jobs, always staying under the legal $200 limit (believe me way below) per week that I can earn. Sewing for the Eagles, doing side work on websites and social media consulting- (which is a fancy way of saying, I set up Business facebook pages and market them for each individual business.)

I am on the second revamp of my resume now, aiming more for the Executive Admin jobs instead of Marketing coordinator. As a Marketing Coordinator I was laid off from my last 2 jobs because of the economy, which btw looks crappy on a resume. 

I wish there was a way to discuss the book writing and the successful beef & beer I threw for the FOP in philly but it's not feasible. 

Money of course is an issue. Especially with another grown adult, my 24 yr old, living with me. Rent, cable, electric,car cost's, phone, food, etc has left me most weeks with little or nothing left to spend. Sometimes with little or no food in the house I rely on the kindness of friends or knock on my parents door. Little things, like the latest dr appt and 100 bucks worth of meds, set me back for weeks. 

But still, I have those friends and family, I have a roof over my head and a car that runs. I have blessing that many others in my situation do not have.  Don't think I don't realize that or appreciate it, because believe me... I do! 

So...unemployment is something that has had a huge impact on my life lately.

  1. I understand this one. My job is one of those that any day I walk in I could be without a job starting that day. I am thankful for what I have.
