I worked full-time as a professional educator in an elementary school — in a position where I was stretched very thin and rarely could make time for lunch. I'm going on five months of being unemployed due to budget cuts in the district I was working for. There are days I enjoy sleeping in and watching morning TV while searching the nearly 10 online job sites I frequent every day, morning and night, but then there are other days where I feel so bummed out. . . . Anyone ever feel the same?
A special thanks to PinkTulip for being honest about her situation and sharing her story. I know it isn't easy, and I have heard many friends express the same mixed feeling of being relieved to not face the daily grind while unemployed, but understandably stressed to find another position. I suggest checking out past job search coverage and advice for support and keeping up your healthy search efforts. It sounds like you are working diligently to remain upbeat and find a new position, and I applaud your efforts.
