What it's like being unemployed
When your eyes open each morning you try not to think about how long you can hold on to what you have,you look at your emails to see if the applications you sent had a hit,where ever you go you keep you ear clean and open hoping to hear someone chatting about needing someone to do something and hoping it something that you are skilled at.You cry alot when you kid says dad I need $20.00 for a field trip and you cannot give him,or when you get him after school he ask for a slice of pizza and you say sorry I dont have any money but I do have something in a can just as nice.
