I am an intelligent, hard working woman.  I have been in my field for over nine years.  I am very good at what I do.  Why in the hell can I not find a freaking job????  That pays enough that is.  UGH.  I am single.  I have a little boy to support on my own.  Why, why, why does no-one seem to want to hire me??  Actually I have had 3 job offers.  But they wanted to pay me peanuts.  I can't take $3 an hour less than what I was previously making which is about what these jobs offered.  Yes, I could have taken one.  But then in a few months when my severance is completely gone and any saving I had is gone I wouldn't be able to pay my bills!!!  And if I take one of those then I won't have the time to find a better paying job!!!  This SUCKS.  Big time.  And frankly, I am mad.  I know too much and worked too hard to take $3 less an hour.  That probably sounds arrogant.  But that is how I feel. 

I am in a total panic now.  I still have some severance left so I am not broke yet but I will be soon.  I could ramble on for much longer because I am totally feeling sorry for myself right now.  I am having a Jennifer pity party.  Why did my stupid former company have to close????  I loved my job.  I made decent money and had great benefits and tons of time off.  Now I have to start ALL OVER and I am so pissed about that.  It sucks.  It totally sucks!!!

OK, I have clothes to fold.  Just had to get that off my chest.  Pity party over for now.

Sorry to hear about that.

But 3 bucks less is better than nothing at all.  And you will still have some time left with your savings and severance.
