And So The Search Continues…

We are now 5 months into the job search, and I’ve been in panic mode for the last 3 of them!  Now, I’m in the freak out stage, where my dad is telling me he can’t keep supporting me, and I still haven’t had any nibbles!  My bank account overdrew, he was supposed to put money in, yet it never made its way in.  Last week, I was dealing with the whole moving fiasco, and as soon as I was back online, I must have sent out 20 resumes and cover letters, and not one phone call!  I’m just so irritated and ready to throw in the towel, with nowhere to turn.  The ony thing is I don’t have anywhere to go.  Michigan isn’t an option, they’ve got higher unemployment rates than Tennesee, and as for living with my mother, NO THANKS!  With the whole country having issues, I feel stuck.  And what kills me is my little brother, 20, who is going to school and working full time, is making more money than I’ve ever made!  He had to drop out of college because of his “depression” and has screwed up way more than me, yet things are going well for him!  I just don’t get it, why am I still going around this mountain??????  I haven’t had an interview in over a week, and I’m assumming I didn’t get that one since I never heard back.  The one the week before that, they said they’d certainly let me know EITHER WAY, and NOTHING!!!!!!  If anyone hears of anybody hiring, where it wouldn’t require me to be on my feet all day, let me know, I have a Bachelor’s Degree and can do anything administrative, and have fantastic customer service skills!

I Don’t See the Problem!!

So, my dad called me today, which is (usually) a good thing, however, he called and the first thing he hit me with was why are you calling everyone asking who I’m with or what I’m doing??? I advised him I hadn’t called anyone but my brother, and he NEVER even picked up the phone, I did text him asking if my dad’s girlfriend (last I knew, that’s what she was) was up there with them, but my dad told me he wasn’t up north with him anymore, and I told him I didn’t know that, because he NEVER ANSWERED THE PHONE! It just makes me mad that my brother would tell him that I’m constantly calling him (of which I was doing so I could talk to my dad), and I’ve supposedly added more stress onto him, because he’s already so stressed out. It just bothers me that he gets after me about something I didn’t do!!! Well, I left a not-so-nice message for him, which wasn’t the best thing to do, but he had no business tattling to my dad, he’s not like that (usually)!!!!! And then, I told my dad I just wanted to know what was going on because I wanted to see him, but (I told him) last summer, he didn’t even seem to care whether or not he saw me, and doesn’t seem that interested this year either. I’ve only seen him for about 48 hours (max) in the last 2 years, and apparently, I’m not one of his priorities!!! Now, my brother, with his depression, which has led him to withdraw from college classes, is still the golden child, makes sense to me!!!!!!

Father’s Day

Well, I don’t live near my family, so the holidays aren’t like everyone else’s, and, especially, since my father lives in England, I hardly get to see him, as it is. I did call him, but I think he was at church, so I left him a nice message, but it’s his home phone, and he travels a lot, and I didn’t get a call from him yesterday, being that Saturday is when he’s supposed to call, and he does forget when he travels. Either way, he’ll get the message, but I just wish I could give nice gifts to them as a token for my appreciation. I love my parents dearly, and despite everything that’s gone on in the past few years, they still did a FANTASTIC job raising my brother and I. My dad doesn’t read my blog, I haven’t showed it to him, I still haven’t worked up the courage to tell him I don’t have a job anymore, but only because I love him, and don’t need him worrying, nor do I need the lectures!
