The feeling of being useless is the absolute worst. For instance currently I am unemployed. I've had a few interviews and am waiting to hear back from some others, but it just makes me feel damn irresponsible! Not that I'm complaining about being able to spend my whole day at the beach or biking/walking down the lakefront. At least I'm not at my parents' house in the burbs. There are plenty of things to do in the city, and when I was in the burbs, I think it was seriously taking a toll on my health! I was crazy depressed. I hope one of these jobs comes along, because it would be nice to work during the week and be off on the weekend, like the rest of the world.
But I've been seeing the most wonderful and adorable man who is also unemployed currently and I have enjoyed getting to know him on a personal level. His name is Eric, and he really is fantastic, which is something that I think I really need right now. So while I most definitely will not get a job in my urban design profession, I would really like something in the administrative assistant or customer service sector. The design profession is doing horribly right now. There is absolutely no work. Even when things really turn around it's going to be a very long time until things bounce back. And with that I'm really ok. I think I need a bit of a break from it all and do something much easier for the time being. It doesn't have to be permanent by any means. I've been looking for jobs on Craig's List and I swear if I get one more freud email asking for my social security number I'm going to go apeshit. It's ridiculous really. Alright it's really hot out, and I think it's time to go exercise with Eric. Love ya's!
A former New Yorker-turned Tennesseean-turned Chicagoan who sometimes keeps himself so busy, he barely has a moment to sit down. Of course I sit for long enough to keep this blog. I'm a self-proclaimed news and fact junkie, and I love writing about funny, touching, amazing, annoying, crazy, or just plain boring things that I encounter in this crazy city we know as Chicago.
