    I Know I Need One.

    but I'm so lazy lately I don't wanna do anything.  I have a possible chance as a security guard for 12 dollars an hour, but I'm scared I'm too lazy to keep it.

    I Think This Is Why I Don't Have A Job.

    I've been unemployed for over a year now. I've been searching for a job since I left my last one. I'm pretty sure my lack of interviewing skills is what turns potential employers off. I find myself being very nervous. Sweaty palms, racing heart beat, hard to make eye contact...

    Blackballed

    I've been blackballed in my town by my ex-employer. She is a very, very vindictive and unreasonable person, and I rue the day I ever went to work for her. I've been jobless for almost a full year, which has never happened to me outside of me being a full-time student.
