It's not the best day for me to start a blog. My up-beat happy self is gone for the month, leaving a dark stain of hopelessness.
Let me 'splain a little why: (and if you don't want to hear me whining you better leave)
I've been a temp worker for 3 companies in the past 5 years.
I have a college degree (completed less than 2 years ago)
I have no idea if my career choices are that piss poor, if the job market in this area sucks that much, or if I am just that unlucky with jobs.
I have not had any benefits in over 5 years. I do not qualify for any state benefits because I make too much money ($9.50 an hour. . . go figure) I have no dependents (and this is a very good thing).
I pay for all my ADD meds out of pocket. I have a mouth full of cavities and bad teeth.
My job I'm at (through a temp agency) decided that working till 9pm doesn't constitute 2nd shift any more and cut my pay by a dollar last month. I've actually gone down in frickin pay.
The company I work at didn't inform my temp agency of my change in pay. When the temp agency found out, instead of sticking up for me they said I was over paid and took the difference out of my next check!!! With friends like this who needs enemies?
I have just been rejected for 2 jobs.
I might write some more later on. But right now I'm sick of trying. I'm sick of losing. I'm sick of work and being screwed over. I'm sick of hurting.
