- Wedding: July 2011
Hello everyone! It’s my first post on here, and I’m trying to be cheerful, but it’s really hard when you are sinking, finanacially.
I have been jobless since November 2009, when I was let go because I wasn’t able to travel to work anymore (I was in an accident, where I was hit while I was walking–completely unexpected), although my boss liked to say it was “because of the economy”, but his snarky comment of “I hope you find something closer to home” still proves otherwise.
I’ve been readily applying everywhere for a similar position, and I haven’t even got an interview as of yet. The funny thing is that I’m in Human Resources; you would think that someone who specializes in jobs could actually get one, but nothing so far I feel like I’ll just have to find some kind of survival job so that I can have something. Luckily that my fiance is working…but it’s only usually 3 days a week and sometimes a full week if he’s needed.
We’re still planning the wedding, as we sent out our save the dates already, but on a very limited budget; that means more DIY, less guests, having our reception in a community centre (but I still think it’s really nice and clean!) and even cutting down the liquor that we’re having.
I’m just bummed out about not being able to find a job, despite my work experience and education.
Is any one else wedding planning and jobless? What have you done to minimize your costs?
