With much shame I finally caved in and filed for unemployment. I stubbornly refused to file for it at first, I don't know if it is pride or what but the idea of it pissed me off. My birthday is coming up and everyone keeps asking me, "What do you want for your birthday?" to which I reply, "A job."
"Oh nothing else you sure?"
"Naw I don't need anything but a job and I'll be happy."
I went over a month without a job and it was starting to get to a point where logic had to override my pride. I got to say, I am impressed with how much I am getting, but the jobs are opening up around here, and I actually got some interviews today. So who here has had to do this as well?
