    I sometimes wonder if i was born unlucky

    or maybe God gave me endless trials which would lead to my depression and deep financial debt. I am still jobless since I graduated last April 2013, and whenever I apply for a certain company I really like or the position that suited me, I would end up in a very low, I mean low...

    Standing Outside The Party

    I Hate Being Unemployed

    I'll be honest, there was a point in my life, not too long ago where I believed that being at home everyday would be GREAT.  The following is my rant on the emotional toll of unemployment: I had a full time job and I hated it.  I dreaded going to work everyday...

    Unemployment!?

    I think if people were "actually" willing to work they would do anything. There are enough jobs but people don't want to do them. For example, care jobs are ten to the dozen. Ok the hours are not great but the money is ok and it will change the way you think about things when you...
