I just finished a certification class in Dec. for medical coding and billing. Of course I don’t have the work experience quite yet so I was hoping to do some sort of an externship so I could put SOMETHING on my resume. Unfortunately, that’s rare these days. That’s where my one stress comes in. Trying to find a job. I feel like it’s going to be nearly impossible with the way things are in today’s economy. I have learned that if you don’t know somebody to get in, you’re basically screwed. I am still trying to be as optimistic as possible, but sometimes it’s so discouraging after sending in application after application. Of course I plan to work two jobs once I get the first. I’m ambitious. AND CRAZY! 😛
But all has been somewhat well for J. He has a full-time job (not making as much as he should), but we are going to be able to pay off his bills (parents doing) and then after I got a job, we’d be somewhat settled and living in our own place. Well, unfortunately, yesterday happened and now we’re not even sure if he’ll have a job at the end of the week. He’s a plumber (in school training as well) and he’s also learned a lot about how workers are treated during these rough times. I feel so bad for him because he’s a hard worker and his work ethics are superb. I am hoping he’ll find some sort of replacement job where he’s treated like a human being and not a slave for little money. =/ wishful thinking, right?
It’s so hard to sit here and go through these rough times. Sometimes I wonder if things will ever fall into place. It seems like when things are going good for us, something or someone comes around and just laughs in our face and takes away the good things.
I know things WILL work out in the end. Especially because I’ll never give up and I’m a fighter, but I’m worn out. I’ve been through a lot these past couple of years with several different things. I just would love (along with everyone else) that lady luck would stick by my side for awhile.
Sorry for the long venting. I’m not trying to whine or complain about this. I figured there’s others out there who can relate or maybe offer some friendly advice.
Hope all is well with you though!
