My life seems to be in a constant state of tumultuous highs and bottomless lows, up and down, hot and cold… There’s never a slight problem it’s always an avalanche. The last 28 hours have been a prime example of that.
I was laid off 3 months ago from a job I loved. I filed for unemployment, was accepted and have been very actively looking for a job ever since. Until yesterday. Yesterday I received a notice from unemployment that my benefits are terminated, and unless I appeal, I will have to pay back all benefits because my employer is claiming that I quit.
Last evening was a frantic search for any retail stores that might be hiring (note: I detest retail) and plastering my resume on virtual bulliton boards everywhere. After 3 hours of sleep I got up and scheduled an appointment with a temp agency, continuing my search and phone calls until I had to head into town. As I was pulling into a parking space at the temp agency my phone rang, someone calling to say they had my received my resume. When I found out they were only about 2 blocks away I invited myself over for an interview (well, you know what I mean, “Hey, would you like to meet to interview me as soon as I’m done here?”). They loved me. The two people I interviewed with said that I was just what they were looking for, they asked for my references and said I’d be hearing from them very shortly.
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
And I’m feeling good
