Unemployment Blues

Well I’ve set up my own website, and right now I’m fighting with my mind what to write. I guess that these posts will be about my thoughts, and for those who just read the words “will be about my thoughts” and are deciding whether or not to click the exit button – I can assure you it is merely positive energy I try and give off.

I was thinking of doing this site like some sort of Guitar review/demonstration to help my YouTube videos (which as of May 2012 are on hiatus). But I fought against it – I’m not going to go uber personal and/or mention any names. It’s just going to be a blog, about what I’m doing.

So here goes…

Today I awoke after 7 hours sleep – it was a rather hectic evening, I was expecting to go to bed much earlier but circumstances prevented me from doing so. I used to think that I was an “Early Riser” and as such my day would be over by 4pm – but it appears I’m wrong!

Well anyway, one of the ‘many’ joys that unemployment brings to a 17 year old is the fact that I have some time now to get on with something useful, so I’ve spent most of the days I’ve been unemployed (well for me it’s out of education really – and that’s been since August 30th) working on my guitar playing.

It makes me cringe every time some cretin blames an immigrant for “stealing their job” or someone else says “there isn’t a job there” – what I usually say to these people is “Are you looking day and night for a job?” and usually the response I get is “No”. I am currently seeking work, something at a supermarket or something to get some work experience/extra money lying around, and although the amount of times I’ve received an email saying “We’re sorry but you’ve been unsuccessful” would drive any other human being into depression. But it’s with a level of optimism that I keep trying, and it’s the same level of optimism that I hope to put into this blog.

Thanks for reading
