Expect a journal every time I have a mental fart for the next while. Could be in the middle of the day, could be 2 am in the morning for all I know. I just found out that I qualify for EI, which is awesome. EI is one of those things that I HATE but am incredibly thankful that it exists. I hate having to file for it about as often as I get my haircut but I probably would have starved to death if it weren't there.
Just to clarify, I am doing everything I can to get a job. I have a few things against me however. Being a rather small sized female isn't going to open any doors for me...I don't think anyway. I have to consider all my options and go from there. Union/non-union, military, reserves, industrial, going out west (gak). First and foremost I need to be accumulating HOURS. These are important because to reach the next level of my career I need to accumulate 8000 hours in total to become a journeyman (person lol), 2000 for each of the four steps towards that goal. It's fucking complicated and annoying and means putting up with alot of crap until you get there.
Anyway things are slow in Halifax right now. This recession isn't over by a long shot. The next few months are going to be interesting.
