Yes, you read that correctly. I am exhausted by NOT working… I’m exhausted by looking for work. My new full time job has become looking for a full time job.
I can honestly say I am feeling panicked and depressed… not feelings that are usual for my otherwise optimistic spirit and personality.
I am fortunate to have a vast network of friends and family who continue to encourage me and network on my behalf as well. Without them, I’m sure I’d be headfirst and full throttle into depression overdrive.
I’m going to use the fact that today is Friday, and the weekend is creeping all over my enthusiasm to continue the job search, as my excuse to put an end to it for the week.
It’s a good thing I still have enough cash in the bank to afford some fine tequila which will make for a nice poolside margarita this afternoon.
For now, it’s bottoms up, poolside, on the rocks, no salt, with a twist of lime!
