I have been unemployed for over a year now. Thankfully unemployment has been extended or I would have been completely screwed.  I have been looking for a job everyday for hours on end.  I don’t seem to be getting anywhere. Jobs are few and far between. Some days there seem to be a ton of jobs, but I am not getting calls regarding my resume.  How long does it take for potential employers to go through resumes? Can they go through them faster? The unemployment is almost at 10%. Look at the resumes, set up the interviews and hire some of these unemployed people! Hello Marketing, Event, PR firms, I am talking to you. Hire me! I am ready, willing and able to work for you NOW!

I am getting frustrated and starting to FREAK OUT!  My FREAKING OUT is the culprit of me not sleeping lately.  I can’t seem to get a full night sleep anymore. I am constantly tossing and turning. Before I was laid off, I was a fantastic sleeper. I could sleep 8 hours each and every night. Now, I am lucky to get 5 hours of sleep. The lack of sleep is catching up on me. I am groggy, run down, and feel like I am losing my mind.

I am remaining positive and confident I will find full time employment soon. I am doing my best to control my FREAKING OUT and not over think my lack of job. One day I will sleep again, hopefully sooner than later.
