Just wanted to say that I’m thinking and praying for you! I know it’s tough for a lot of people right now because of the economy. Stay confident, you’ll find a great job!

Lord knows this economy is bad….I work in IT and am so thankful to have a job( even if i dont like it) but i was talking to Fiance earlier this week about picking up a night time gig a few nights a week (after the wedding) to make some extra cash. i used to wait tables when i was younger and was AMAZED by the money i could make. have you ever thought of doing something like that? Plus it will keep your mind of other things.

i’ll be thinking about you – keep your head high and keep looking forward. the clouds will clear eventually

@yearns4god:It sounds like you are having a bad day. Tomorrow is a new day and you are off work! Things are looking up already:0)

Honey and I were long distance for almost a year until one of us had to move (guess who).  Now after 5 months I’m stuck without a job (mine didn’t transfer) and can TOTALLY relate to what you are feeling.  I know what you’re thinking, why would I move before finding a job?  Well, it’s bc Honey makes enough to take care of things, almost 3x what I was making.  Plus, after being long distance for so long and missing him sooooo much when we would be apart, I thought it was a SWEET deal for me to move.  Not to mention I couldn’t stand my wench of a boss, which made it even more interesting.  Now with the holidays and wedding planning, I do feel the extra money would be GREAT! But, I guess all we can do is keep trying.  I like Soladylike’s “tomorrow is a new day”!!

(((yearnsforgod))) Something is going to come along soon. Don’t worry. Just keeping trying. It’s all going to work out in the end AND this economy will get better.

I completely understand where you are coming from. Unemployment has affected my relationship too.  It’s tough right now, but it will get better and you will find something.  Hang in there and keep ya head up!

I totally understand where you’re coming from.  I have a job, but I’ve been working as a server because I can’t get a job in my field.  It’s really hard out there.  Somehow we managed to get engaged and plan a wedding anyway.  Hang in there, things will get better for you.

Uck, I know.  I have a job, but it’s not one I like (terrible management), and not in my field.  But then I have to think….it pays the bills.  And it won’t be forever.

I don’t know if it would help for you, but when I get super stressed and upset, I write down everything that’s bothering me and steps that I can take to change it.  Ie:

-hate my job (apply for new jobs, be patient, try to see the positive)

-weight issues (internet research, set realistic goals, find a workout partner)

I hope it starts to look up for you 😀 I have big hopes for 2011!

I can relate! I’ve been looking for a job for a month now, and that’s including fast food and retail, but nothing yet. It’s really starting to stress me out because I’m moving to a new city in just five days, and only have enough money for one month’s living expenses… Ugh. So not ideal.

Good luck! I hope you find something really soon 🙂

Awww hunny, I can completely understand your stress! We are actually in the middle of planning our wedding, and I lost my job! Talk about stress! We have due dates for vendors coming up, and one income just wont cut it! I completely understand where you are coming from. All we can do is keep our head up and keep trying!

I’m self employed so I didn’t lose my job but I did lose my main & most stable source of income literally days before my wedding.  Everything was paid for, there was no turning back.  Just more debt.

It put such a damper on the event, I can’t even begin to tell you.

Luckily, it turned out to be nothing more than a paperwork glitch & things are slowly returning to normal, but I was not nearly at my best on my wedding day.

I totally get the need to focus on the job situation as number one priority.  Hoping things turn around soon for you.

i know how you feel. this is the exact reason why the mister and i aren’t engaged/married yet. we’re long distance and he’s looking for work in my home state so that’s been hard as an out-of-stater [some employees shy away from applicants like that in fear of having to pay relocation costs] and then i lost my job and now the economy stinks. we both want to have jobs before we get married so looking for work has been our top priority [well, it’s mine now since i finally just finished school]. but you know, remember that all you need is one yes. your job is out there and you’ll find it. try to stay hopeful.

I hear you.  Heading into month 11 for me (though I did get a part-time job in a different field that pays peanuts at the end of August).  My stress now is that I’ve been out of work too long.  Been on interviews but there’s just too much competition for the few that are available.
