I've been unemployed for 3 weeks now. It's not fun. Actually, that's not entirely true. Some of it is to be completely honest.
I don't have to wake up early right now. I can watch YouTube on my "breaks." I can go to coffee shops to do some work (that doesn't pay me anything). That's the fun part.
There's also a horribly depressing and stressful part of unemployment. I'm not getting paid right now. I need money. You need money to survive in this world. It's been really rough. My anxiety gets pretty bad sometimes because I'm not supporting myself or my family. I feel pretty useless.
I haven't let that bring me down enough to just do nothing. I've been applying to jobs. I've been submitting proposals to freelance jobs. I've been researching and continuing learning in order to keep progressing independently. I'm even working on an app right now.
I'm trying. I've done this before. I really hate it, but I'm not gonna stop until I get a job. I need to get one.
