If you follow my blog your probably know that I’m back on the job market. It’s only been a week since I left my job, but there are not oodles of jobs out there that I am qualified for, and I’m a bit nervous about how long I may be looking. Actually, I’m more than a bit nervous. I don’t have a lot of money saved up, and this may take awhile. So, I took a giant bite of humble pie and I applied for Food Stamps. I want to cringe with shame even saying it. But really this is what Food Assistance is for, is to see people through a lean stretch of time. If I can get some help with food expenses, why not do it? I need to conserve every dollar I can. I need to be a sensible adult here. I mean, I hope I get a job quickly, but realistically, I need to take care of myself and be frugal.
I also signed up for a resume workshop with my local Workforce Center for next week. I think I need professional help with my resume, especially since I’m trying to break in to a new area of IT. I’m hoping they can help me refocus my resume and give me feedback to make it more polished and to have a better shot at getting that first call from recruiters – which may lead to an interview.
Finally, I called Cigna today and asked them where the hell my insurance ID card was, so I can make some appointments with Dr. Drugs and my therapist. They’re waiting on my payment, which I just paid because I just got the damn bill. This is the insurance I signed up for in November, mind you. Cigna, get your shit together!! So I have a week or two until I can make appointments with Dr. Drugs and my therapist.
All in all I’d say it’s been a very low-fun day but I have done some good shit! I also got my light therapy and my walk in, even though it was gloomy and I sure didn’t want to walk. I just treated it like a prescription that I had to take. Bleh!
Hope you all are having a glorious Monday!
