What's So Funny About Unemployment?

A funny little unemployment blog for your (un) enjoyment

The End?

with 4 comments

It’s been a long time since I posted here at WSFAU, for a variety of reasons.

Such as: Last January, I was very sick. As in, the ER doctor told me I could have died. Thankfully, I didn’t die. But I did spend a week in the hospital. And I’ve had to see doctors and take drugs and lab tests regularly ever since then. But I feel much, much better now, thanks.

And after years of blogging about unemployment, I tired of blogging about unemployment. So I did other things. I worked part-time, I looked for other job opportunities, I kept going to Toastmasters and serving on the board of the Friends of the Ferndale Library. Last month, I started another blog.

Yesterday, I received a job offer from Kelly Services to be a call center representative for my favorite computer company.  I’m also beginning to volunteer my writing services for a few local organizations. They and I hope the pro bono work will lead me to other opportunities.

So this looks like it may be my final post here. I’ll keep WSFAU up and linked to my new blog, though. (After all, I paid for the domain name.)

“The staff” and I thank you for reading WSFAU and its Facebook page.

And if you’re unemployed, you’re in my thoughts and prayers.

I’m back!

After nearly a week of being away from WSFAU and my computer, I’m back.

I missed you. Did you miss me?

I was away for a good reason: I was taking care of a sick friend. Unfortunately, my friend had to go (back) into the hospital this afternoon and will probably be there for Christmas. So think about people like her when you complain about how much of a hassle your holiday celebration is this year — at least you’ll have a holiday celebration.

Apparently I did such a good job taking care of her, and of another ill friend earlier this year, they now think I should become a nurse’s aide or certified nurses assistant.

They aren’t WSFAU readers as far as I know, or they’d remember my April post on medical assisting.
