Life Status Update

Hey everyone.

Thought I'd give you all an update on my situation. As it stands, hundreds of applications later, I am still jobless. Apparently I'm not even qualified enough to sell dresses at Bloomingdale's. I'm so crestfallen about it (scarcest).

So…I guess I'm just riding this out until I crash and burn. I'm constantly looking for a job, like so many others i know, and I *think* I have enough for rent this month, so if you are holding back on a repro pattern, now is the time, let me tell ya!

Everything is still so up in the air, so I'm just trying to hold out, particularly one more month. See what happens as I slog through this mess of crappy job applications.

I'm really sad that I can't afford Viva this year. I was gonna enter the swimsuit contest. Ah well.

Okay everyone. I'm really, really gonna start back to sewing. I promise. Give me a bit more time and I'll get back to it.

Talk with you all later!

Delurking to say so sorry that you are having a hard time. He things get better soon. Your sewing is really inspirational too.

I know how you feel! I have been out of work, except for short-term, part-time crummy jobs since the recession began. I left my teaching job and moved to help care for my mother. Thank God I have a place to stay, but I live in a very rural area and there is no work at all. Being 61 doesn't help my situation, despite all my brains and experience! Times are tough!

Sorry to hear of your situation! I hope you can stay positive and wish you all the best!

Wish there was something I could to to help—I'm so sorry. Going through this sort of thing is really scary and so demoralizing.

Hang in there. I'm sorry for what you are going through, it's very hard being knocked back all the time. Thinking of you.

Sorry to hear that you are still having a hard time. I just made a purchase on your etsy shop. Hopefully every little bit helps.

Hey Shelly! I saw this job posting on /r/LAist and I thought of you. I'll be honest and say I'm not sure if you're a graphic designer, but just in case you are, give this a shot!
