Day 73 of unemployment

7:45 Get up uncharacteristically early because the daylight is streaming into the room. Chat to house mates who are up for breakfast because they did proper degrees and have actual jobs. Check facebook. Post something inane on Twitter.

8:30 – 10:00 Apply for jobs online. Change a word or two here and there in the cover letters to make it seem like I actually read the brief. Drink numerous cups of tea.

10:00 – 1:00 Watch bad day-time tv, chat to remaining housemates who are also currently jobless. Try to beat housemate at stupid game. Fail. Attempt to make former employers recommend me on LinkedIn. Apply for a couple more jobs. Not hungry? Eat 17 jaffa cakes anyway. Phone rings – secure an interview – YIPEE!

1:00 – 5:00 More bad TV. And Murder She Wrote. I love Jessica Fletcher. Wait for housemates to get home. Check facebook 23 more times. Wish the appropriate people happy birthday, as told by the little box at the top. Tomato soup – yummy. Make soldiers out of brown bread toasted. Wonder what the bank balance is… better not check – depression central!

5:00 – bedtime: Countdown. Facebook. The Chase. Soaps. Facebook. Chat to housemates, who are tired, ’cause of their jobs. Tweet someone famous. Tweak CV.

In conclusion, I NEED A JOB!
