These past few months have been hectic. I've always held a steady job, and last year when I was laid off I thought it would be easy to take a little time off and spend the summer with my son. Now I'm stuck and can't find a job. I've applied for a few positions and the wait time is horrible. If I would've known it would take this long I would've started looking immediately after I got laid off. I'm bummed because I've taken about 4 clerical exams and this most recent one which I was looking forward to I missed by one point. I was over confident since I had taken 3 tests at other locations prior to this one and passed easily. Oh well let the waiting continue. I never knew so many steps were needed to apply for one position. It feels nice to vent. But this mom needs to get her act together and get a job asap.
