Crunch time

In about three weeks, my unemployment runs out. I am a little worried but I’m not stressing it. Right now, I am working on a four page application for a part-time job as a residential assistant at an Adult Living Home. I found out yesterday that a paper in the county that I live in has an opening for a reporter. I am putting together a package—resume, cover letter and writing samples.

I am trying to be positive but I know I will be going up against hundreds of out of work Charlotte Observer reporters. I am being realistic about my odds of getting this job. So I am going to start applying this week for part-time positions at fast food restaurants. I figure part-time is better than nothing. I’ll keep applying for other jobs. A girl has gotten do what she can to survive in this economy.

The Center is still working on getting approval for me to see a therapist there. The meds are helping me with my appetite and my anxiety. But I would like to see a therapist. It is hard to chop through the red tape and government sometimes.

I finished my article for the NC paper and it is suppose to be the cover story for Friday’s paper. Hopefully, this will lead to more assignments and maybe a future job.
