I got a jobby Job!!!!

After a long, long, long time of sending out resumes and attending interviews, someone said YES to me. The emotional toll of being out of work has been brutal to my mind, soul, and body. I expressed some of the angst on my blog so the regular readers know what I mean.

I want to thank many of the bloggers for keeping my spirit high when I was feeling so low. Your words made a huge difference in my outlook on life. So a big ups to you guys. (slang for appreciation).

I also want to send a message to many of the talented bloggers out there that are still jobless: Don't let the world make you a bitter person. Also, do not let a job/status define you. Your creativity is proof of your gift to society.

One thing that this recession has shown Americans everywhere is that times are hard. Many people are in tough situations. The recession has touched so many people around us. I tried staying positive when financially, I had little to show.

I learned to not take employment for granted and that we can only control so much in our lives. That portion that we can't control is not worth stressing over.

Last night I went to see some local comedians in Long Beach,CA and when I got home I finished a bottle of wine and slept comfortably.

On my way to the employment agency I played a stand up CD of Greg Giraldo (R.I.P) who died recently and I started the day with humor.

I guess what I'm trying to say is drink wine, enjoy some comedy, and you too can get hired. Stay positive bloggers!
