[tcb] Re: everyone!!!

Took me almost 4 months but I found a new one.  Hit the various job boards hard 
and call everyone you know.  In the meantime, read all the resume and interview 
prep stuff you can get your eyes on.  Find something that interests you and 
learn something new.  Check out a welding class or something.  If it's 
marketable, all the better.

Volunteering can be good too (focus on other people's problems).  Don't be 
afraid to market yourself while doing it.  Doesn't hurt to be able to show 
initiative while hunting.

Oh, and log all your job hunt related miles, phone calls, printing costs, 
etc...  may be tax deductible.

I know it's not easy, but stay positive.

What's the definition of luck?  Some say it's when preparation meets 
opportunity...

thanks to everyone, i am extreemly stressed right now. thanks to our wonderful 
economy the newspaper business is finally getting hit. after all the promises 
that were made in the past 6 months our division of the paper got shut down. my 
last day is the 17th of this month not march 1 like they originall projected. 
when asked about transferring to the big paper they simply said "we have your 
resume" i asked them about an application, something i had to fill out 
regardless at my current job, they said, "we have your resume" so do you think 
i'm getting transferred, no, not at all. i made the carreer move last year 
because the company i worked for was in the pits baaaaad. i thought, newspaper 
business is a good steady job that will be up and running forever. well, just 
my luck, the company i left just bought a 4-color lithoron press and i just got 
laid off. i made a horrible carreer move, i am kicking myself in the ass for 
it. i have so far applied at
 autozone, best buy, hastings, and walmart. all are supposedly hiring, none 
have called and it's been 4 days. monday i go to the unemployment office and 
mooch for the short time that i can. that's the added stress, is arkansas is 
one of 30 states that is projected to run out of unemployment in the next 3 
weeks. someone on the aircoolers site said it best, it's a recession when it's 
your neighbor, it's a depression when it's you. we're doing all we can to stay 
afloat including some shit freelance work...but whatever pays the bills right.

diana says bad things happen in 3's so here's the deal our dishwasher quit 
working, we need a new roof (discovered a new leak), and i got laid off. so 
that makes 3 right, well here's the icing on the cake folks, we did our taxes 
thinking, that will help us in this situation. well, we owe $690. evidently 
those wonderful monthly taxed bounses i was getting for reaching monthly goal 
were taxed and put us into a different tax bracket. of course i wasn't taking 
enough out to cover the different tax bracket. i'm scared of what the other 2 
are gonna be. i hit unsubscribe on the list but it said the moderator had to do 
it. keep me on gerald. i may not post much but keep me on. i have found out who 
true friends are. many of you have emailed me personally offering to help. i 
appreciate that. we'll get by. i'm just depressed beyond belief. there's an old 
habit of mine i haven't done in many years that i've been awfully tempted to 
partake in but then i'm reminded
 that every place i applied for a job at does a certain "test" that i would 
then fail.

oh well, like i said, we'll get by. yesterday was old today is a new day. now 
i'm gonna get back to the freelance work and then try to get hershey back on 
the ground and drive the piss out of him while he still has insurance :D

Whatever it is, don't panic. Always remember tomorrow is a new day and you 
won't make rash decisions. Keep us updated and let us know how we can help.
