Those of you who know me in real life know (probably) that I got laid off in July. If you didn't know that.... hey, surprise, I got laid off in July.
I'm hardly alone. I think about 11.2% of Ohio is unemployed right now. I've never been much into being mainstream, and honestly, this is one time I REALLY wish I didn't fit in. BUT, I'm in an ok spot, so I'm going to make the most of it.
Before I go on, I want to say something to folks who read this who might be unemployed, or sensitive, or both: I'll probably end up saying things about being unemployed that seem like I'm not "taking it seriously", or that I think it's a joke. It's not. I know that. Most parts of not having a job suck. I'm just trying not to get mired down in the sucky parts.
So right now, I'm a glass and a half of wine into the day and I still have to paint my porch. (I have been painting this (**@&#*!!! porch since Day Two, I think!) I'm going to sign off. I'll have profound things to say tomorrow. Or later if this bottle is "inspiring".
Ok. Blog Post One done. Over and out!
