Yeah, it's been a while. I didn't realize it had been three months since I posted something here. After doing the last Skyrim webcomic I just haven't been feeling the desire to draw much. I was stressing out. I lost my last job back in November. (I keep meaning to write down that story.) I've been unemployed for almost eight months. That's not a good thing.
I've already burned through my savings. Unemployment benefits don't cover much. It's been getting to the point where I've been using credit cards to pay for things I shouldn't have. I've been looking at the 401k... wondering if it's time to tap that, too. I haven't yet.
I don't mean to sound like it's been the end of the world. It's not like that at all. It has been stressful going on interviews, getting all excited about a job I think I'm going to get... and then not getting it. That's happened several times. It'll be down to me and a couple of other people. I get second interviews, and then I found out they went with someone else. Or worse, most of these companies never bother to call back at all. I guess I'm supposed to assume after a week or three that I just didn't get the job. That has been a very unfun emotional rollercoaster. And it's something else I've been meaning to write about but never got around to.
Yesterday I got a call from a headhunter agency. I've talked to them dozens of times, and I've went on interviews for them a few times. This time they had a job for me that won't require yet another interview! I'm going downtown and starting work tomorrow!
Now I'm a bit nervous because it's been eight months since I've done any desktop support. I'm feeling very, very rusty. I don't really know anything about this job yet. I think I'll be a part of a small team that are all employed by the headhunter agency. I just spent the last couple of hours updating my USB flash drive with all my desktop support tools.
I do plan on writing and posting a lot more soon. My loyal sidekick has me working on another webcomic project, and I actually have some new art to post soon. It's about time for the next movies list. I've been to a few more cheeseburger joints, and I need to write those reviews. Now that I'm working again, I won't feel like everything besides looking for a job is a waste of time! It already feels like a major relief.
Wish me luck.
