Day 2 of my unemployment was fairly productive. I found & applied for 6 jobs. I also decided it was about time I dipped my toe a little farther into the social media waters. As you know, I love my Facebook and recently started Melissa's Colorado as a place to just talk about the things I love to do and eat in this gorgeous state. Theresa told me last week that Instagram will post my photos to Facebook and Twitter at the same time, so I spent the afternoon setting up a second Twitter account for @MelsColorado and figuring out how to switch back and forth between that account and my @strongstarting account.
I love learning new things and adore social media!
That and my children being home with me made the day fly by. No time for sadness. I am good at keeping busy.
Day 3, today, I took my kids back to be with the day for the day and well my house is really quiet. Like, I can hear buzzing in my ears kinda quiet.
Today has been much harder than yesterday. Today I opened the mailbox and my final paycheck has arrived. Knowing exactly how much money I have left until I earn another paycheck really bummed me the fuck out.
I logged on and searched for more jobs that I might enjoy-scratch that-am over qualified for.
I cleaned out two drawers and found my long lost YMCA membership card, at 3 handfuls of M & M's, hung out on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, scrap-booked some souvenirs from my DC trip into my journal and texted with my daughter who we just set up on Facebook. I also polished some of the wood horizontal surfaces in the living and dining room.
Officially 5 pm. closing time!! I can relax now, right?
Command Central so I don't lay on the couch...Journal, souvenirs to scrap book, kombucha for my aching belly, tp for my tears of joy, YMCA card to go to the pool, notebook of companies I have applied to so I can follow up.
