    I live in an area that has a high unemployment

    rate in the winter. I was laid off at the end of the summer, just before fall. And have been having a very hard time finding work, because jobs are hard to come by in my town in the winter. I have been looking for work outside my city. Before my unemployment, I had been working...

    I struggled for years to get an Engineering

    degree, just to find out that nobody wants a female engineer. How funny is that? I got my degree almost two years ago, and I could only land 2 interviews. In which they politely asked me if I had any children, or wanted to have children, or if I had a husband. I don't. But what...

    especially not if I don't want to be seen as ungrateful or spoiled. Maybe I am, I don't know. I'm ranting because I hate being unemployed. I've been unemployed for about two years now, and I absolutely hate it. The constant nagging from your parents, the boredom, the fear...

    Seriously, Do People Really Love Being Unemployed?

    It's boring beyond belief because there's nothing to do, no one to hang out with and no money to do those things you want to do like go to a cafe or have a drink. You can't join sports teams or clubs because you can't afford to get there, let alone take part. Even if you do go...
