Unemployment 2010

1 Jul

Today is the first day of my life as an unemployed person.

I have a bachelor’s and master’s degrees, a gigantor resume, a little bit of freelance writing, and a steady trickle of interviews with potential employers. I have that much to be thankful for, but I also have a whole lot of bills including student loans that need to be paid. Yes, those suck.

I am hoping Unemployment 2010, as I have come to call it, will be a very temporary state in my life. The last time I didn’t have a job for awhile was in 2005 after my first year of college. So not having a job is a pretty abnormal state for me. However, I will try to look on the bright side of this. I will finally get the chance to dedicate some of my time to starting a couple of web projects I’ve been poking around with and writing a little more.

But the most fun part of this temporary state of joblessness is I will finally have a chance to watch a few movies I have never seen and should because they are iconic pop culture films. These films include Labyrinth and Purple Rain. Yes, it’s true I have never seen either of these movies featuring the wonderfully fantastic David Bowie and Prince, respectively.



So as I work away at freelance projects and watch movies featuring some of the greatest musical artists of our time, I will occassionally tweet items related to Unemployment 2010 with the hashtag #UE2010. If you are experiencing joblessness as I am, join me in using this hashtag.
