Unemployment: Too Much Work

Sorry I haven’t posted in so long! But I have good excuses: Health I’ve been trying to get to the bottom of a few medical issues I’ve had since my late teens/early twenties so aside from a few crummy visits to the doctor I’ve also been put on New, Better Medicine (’cause throw pills at […]

Unemployment: Moving

Boxes

Getting a little panicky, as I realized that since May is our last month in this house (and good f’ing riddance)…we should probably start considering looking for a new place.┬áThere’s just so much up in the air right now…not having a job is making it a little worrying to pick a location to live for […]

Day Twelve: Work

Today I essentially worked all day: on emails, on branding, on looking for job leads, on fixing my network issues, on unemployment legalities, and getting my desk from the office and setting things up. I made a quick dinner and Evan and I played some Elder Sign and chatted over some tasty drinks he made, […]

Day Eleven: Monotony

Overall I feel out of touch; is my email being received? Is my phone not accepting incoming calls? Are my files actually uploading or are they just pretending to transfer? Is anything being accomplished? I had lots to work on today. Paying work. Of course, none of it was complete and it took forever to […]

Day Ten: Stress

I spent most of the day tersely backing up files for the upcoming computer reformat. Turns out even with a decent sized USB drive, plus all the empty space on my Google Drive and Amazon Cloud, I still don’t have quite enough space to back everything up. It was very slow and tedious trying to […]

Day Eight: One Week

Today has largely been spent gobbling up my bandwidth…my mom’s website is a beast which I had to download, then upload elsewhere, while also uploading archives of all of my old work files to their server. I’ve been working with the slowest upload speeds imaginable. Eight hours in and I’m mostly done uploading my mom’s […]

Day Seven: Uneventful Again

While prying open my Xbox controller to clean it, I apparently missed removing a screw and pried nearly all of my thumbnails off instead. It makes it difficult to use the touchscreen on my phone. I can’t get my budget, bank account, and spending totals to match…I’m not sure where the discrepancy is. Somewhere in […]

Day Six: Slacking

Bright and early Evan and I went up to Fort Collins for a few things. We met his dad at Snooze for breakfast…they had loaded baked potato pancakes as their special, and it was the best thing I’ve eaten there in a long time (maybe even worth the hour wait). The Fort Collins Office Depot […]

Day Five: Confusing

I’ve already entered the special realm of not knowing what day of the week it is. I did a little bit of work and had a phone call (and potentially an interview next week). Most of my unemployment paperwork showed up, which was surprisingly fast. I also heard word about getting to do some absinthe […]

Day Four: Uneventful

My mom decided to wake me up this morning at an ungodly hour (10am) to ask why I hadn’t blogged yet. Yesterday kinda ran away from me, and after eating breakfast, doing yoga, and playing a little bit of video games, I spent the next 5 hours switching webhosts (which was enough to get everything […]
