It wasn't supposed to rain today, but rain was falling anyway. It isn't raining anymore, but it was soggy outside for most of the morning and early afternoon. There isn't much going on in my life aside from being unemployed for six months non-stop. I'm used to earning roughly $800.00 to $1,000.00 per months. Now I'm earning $0.00 for the past six months. I've been accustomed to being unemployed for only two weeks. The flawless job hunting skills that worked so perfectly in the past isn't working anymore. I need to relearn how to find employment. I'll certainly become a better person because of it.

Summer has been pretty much concluded. Now it's time for Auttumn to arrive. I'm still job hunting. Not much results. However, I do get to have the odd occasional job interview. It's not easy to go job hunting in a recession, but I'm not giving up. I'm surprised how quickly summer has sped right past us. I wish summer was a few months longer. It's not easy to go job hunting in colder weather---Especially with a bicycle as the only mode of transportation. However, I will continue my job hunt come rain or shine. I will become employed again.

I'm praying in church more often these days. I spent the past twelve years avoiding church. Now I'm starting to reconsider my stance towards religion. I'm not used to being unemployed for six months non-stop. I've found employment easily in the past. From 1989 to March 2009, I've been unemployed for only two weeks maximum. Suddenly, the job search techniques that has worked so perfectly in the past isn't working anymore. It's frustrating because I'm not used to unemployment for such a long period of time. I need to reexamine the way I fill out job applications. With luck, I'll find employment if I succeed in learning from my mistakes.

I only have four minutes left in the computer lab in the Cuyahoga County Public Library. I'm checking my assorted e-mails, internet blogs and job hunting web sites. I'm leaving no stone unturned. It's not easy to job hunt in a recession. However, I'm not giving up. I know I'll find employment if I'm persistant enough.
