My Life the Last Couple of Weeks

Posted by vannila-guerilla - December 31st, 2015

Since graduating a couple weeks ago I've found myself with little to do. I've been applying for numerous jobs, watching videos, and then there's not a lot else to do. I live in the smallest town possible that I've been trying to get out of because I haven't gotten a job yet. There aren't any jobs in this town, anyways. Not unless you're a student. That's neither here nor there, though.

Fighting boredom sucks. All my friends either live 70 miles away or are on holiday break. I don't have much to occupy my time and everything seems so formulaic from day to day. Wake up, fill out job applications, find out employers lied about where there business is (Chicago my ass. They're in fucking Oak Lawn, and I can't get there because transportation sucks.), fill out more applications, watch the latest stuff on Newgrounds, fill out more applications, practice my guitar, play a game, more applications, then read a book (I've been reading a history of Prussia if anyone was interested, named Iron Kingdom: The Rise and Downfall of Prussia, 1600-1947). That's how I finish my day. Sounds pretty pathetic, but when you're miles from home, unemployed, and all your friends from the university are out of town you don't have a lot to do to occupy your time.

By the way, I'm not from Chicago. I am putting in applications in hopes of landing a job in inner city Chicago where I plan on living in the O'Hare area, but that isn't working out so well for me since the places that clame to be in Chicago turn out to be 45 minutes away from the closest border of Chicago, which is one hell of a commute. I wouldn't have anywhere to stay if I did that, so it's inner city or nothing. Most of the places I've been applying to are in my hometown of Peoria, which is more convenient for me. So, I hope I cleared that up. 

I'm going to end this post with an unrelated pic of Steve Buscemi.

May the power of Buscemi be with you! You'd really want to work and live in a big city like C-town?

Yeah. I've always lived inner city until recently.

Zombie apocalypses are more fun in the country, in cities, it's like a mosh pit, or so I'd think...

I know how much it sucks to graduate to unemployment. At least you're making a better effort than I ever did. Keep it up.

Thank you, I will keep it up.
