Ok. So I spend a lot of time on the internet these days.
And sometimes I learn stuff. And sometimes I find jobs to apply for. And sometimes I find ways to spend my time. Here are two things I have recently discovered - the first I found through a group on LinkedIn and the second, a friend sent to me.
The first is a quick list on Mashable of the thirty best websites for the unemployed . I looked through it and it's pretty good. There are some links to job sites you might not think about and there are some links to ways to spend your day. The worst thing about unemployment is not having something to consistently do with yourself during the days. If you are also unemployed, I think this little website will be a pretty good resource.
My friend S sent me this link to Dessert Corps, which is a volunteer opportunity in my neighborhood. If you're familiar with my other blog know that I like to bake, so this is right up my alley. And, unemployed or not, I think it's important to remember that there are always those who are worse off than you. I'm not sure if this is something that I will be able to do weekly, but I think I am going to try and make something for tomorrow and the next week. It's something that I enjoy doing and also something that other people will really enjoy. I'm also going to post this on my Facebook page, as I think it's a great idea.
Tomorrow, I am helping a friend out with his thesis film at will be in New Jersey all day, so I'll be off the 'net and have my phone off for most of the day ... but I think one day away from that, in an unemployed state, is maybe not such a bad thing!
