tired, hot, sweaty and itchy
yup I've been out walking and taking pictures AGAIN this time I covered grassland, woodland, a canal including some very bad wildlife shots, and derelict factories. I only meant to go out for half an hour but I didn't have my watch on so I lost total track of time and came back 3 hours later

Today I am feeling wretched and worthless. And angry!

Ten months ago I was laid off from a job I truly loved, that I have held for ten years, with the promise that when the workload improved, I would be recalled. Two weeks ago I learned that they do not plan to rehire me, and my unemployment benefit has been depleted, and I must look for work immediately, starting with a state-designed program meant to improve one's employability and job-search skills. I discovered that everyone who goes on unemployment in this state is put into this program immediately, but somehow I fell through the cracks in the system. So with no income I am commuting to a neighboring town for this silly (in my opinion) program, and yesterday my car broke down ten miles from home, and I had to be towed, and then pay a fortune for the repair. I have this fantasy of running into my old boss, who always was very pleasant to me, until he fired me. He will smile and say "How is everything?" and I will tell him the truth about what it's like to live in poverty and have to find a new job at the age of 62, thank you very much!

Thanks for letting me vent.

:( You're not worthless. You have 62 years worth of skills. But I know that doesn't help when you can't put food on the table.

Hope you find something else :handgestures-fingerscrossed:
