and again...  
So this time I've requested that the local library people okay my LJ, but we'll see how it goes, basically I still can't see my own journal, and now I can't see my friends page.


Here's what's new - I'm now unemployed officially. Anyone have a job for me? I can pay my mortgage this month and one other loan that's secured against the house and then that's it. I can't even afford train tickets or anything so basically I'm screwed. I need to have a job in the next fortnight or I default on my mortgage. This is really not a good time for me.

So anyway, I'm running low on time here, and the guy at the computer next to me seems to be staring at my screen (probably wondering why I keep getting these inappropriate content messages) so I'm going to go now.

I still miss you all, I have no idea what's going on with anyone, so please? Let me know?

*hugs you all*

Oh dear, I'm sorry. I hope you manage to find a new job real soon!

*glomps* Wishing you the absolute best of luck. Can't offer my usual help when folks get unemployed, since you're not even remotely local. . . . Heck, even my bizarrely extensive knowledge of the American UI system can't help.

So wishes and luck and crossed fingers and hugs. You're a terribly strong, intelligent woman, and any place would be lucky to have you as an employee. Remember that, even when it might get tough to do so.

First, in case you doubt it right now, you are brilliant - don't ever forget it.

The first thing is just to find work and don't be picky - anything that will help pay the bills. You might want to sell the house - I wish I had that advice earlier in our situation, since now we're having it taken from us. Put it on the market now.

This is just a low period. Things can and will get better. I'm not sure if you believe, but I do and have just put you on my prayer list.

This is all temporary. I have faith that things will get better.

I'm so sorry! I agree with the advice about selling the house--weren't you thinking about it earlier, anyway, because it was so far from town? Better to sell it than to lose it.

{{hugs}} to you. I can barely imagine how hard this must be right now.

Sorry to hear RL is so crappy for you right now. It will get better soon.

Personally, I'd follow Lori's advice here. She's been through some similar trouble and most definitely knows what she's talking about.

I really hope things work out for you quickly. Remember, you're smart, qualified and you have mad skilz. Somewhere out there is a job with your name on it.

being jobless SUCKS. this i know from personal experience.

what's your work background? i work for a pharma research organisation b/t maryhill and bearsden and we've been known to hire people short-term to do study recruitment, etc. *shrug* dunno, might be worth a shot.

also a friend of mine had good luck getting placed quickly through the bruce murray recruitment agency, for what that's worth.

hang in there - good thoughts/vibes being sent your way.

Sorry to hear about the real life problems. Hugs and hang in there.

As for me RL and non-rl are tremendously busy right now.

Oh sweetie,

I'm so sorry to hear this. While I don't know the circumstances, I do know you loathed this job and wanted to do something else. Maybe it's a sign for you to get into gear and go out looking. I know I'm kind of in the same boat.

Like previous posters said, go and find something now, to help you get your finances in order. Then after that, put your resume out there and really start looking. Recruitment, placement and temp agencies are your best bets for the first, while online job sites like Monsterboard have tons of jobs daily.

Take care and know we're all thinking of you.

I'm sorry to hear this is happening to you. I wish I could do more than send good vibes your way, but that's all I can do because I'm not even remotely local. *hugs*

I'll keep my fingers crossed that something breaks your way and soon.

Jeez Sho. Sending positive thoughts & love your way, so sorry I'm not nearer.

Listen to Wench - so much sense in a one post. You will get through this and be better for it.

bastardsnowbastardsnow on August 2nd, 2008 09:16 pm (UTC)

Sorry things are turning out so crap. Can't offer any real, actual help, but I'm definitely sending good vibes and thoughts your way.

Hang in there! You will make it through this.

::more hugs::

I wish I could be there with you now.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

oh honey *hugs*
I miss you!! I hope you can find a new job soon!
I really wish I could come and hug you *squishes*
I hope it will work out darling, love you x

Hey Mara,

I've not been able to be on LJ much at all and I didn't know that you've been having such a hard time. I'm so sorry to hear that you're having such a difficult time right now. I agree with selling the house. The sooner you can get it on the market and get it sold the better. I hope that you get a new job very soon and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

(Hugs you)

Theres nothing going on with me, I have no life.
