Default Being Unemployed

how do you kill time? wtf, there's so much time and it goes by SLOOOOOW.

Got up at 4:30am and ran into the restroom when midway, I realized I no longer have a job, so I went back to bed.

7am: get up and eat

7:30am: clean my apartment

9:00am: realize it's barely 9 fvcking am in the morning

10am: watch el chapo series on netflix

12pm: eat

2pm: jogg for 30 minutes

4pm: sleep on couch

5:30pm: wake up and get on ish...

what do i do know? bored AF.

edit: just realized it's saturday. so used to working on the weekends that i don't know what a weekend feels like.

Every day feels like a weekend when you're unemployed.

Collect unemployment (not sure how this works in 2017)

go do some work under the table.

shouldn't be hard to find those types of jobs if you're Mexican.

you might make more than you were originally making.

I've been unemployed for 4 months in the last 8-9 years dude, couldn't help ya. I would work on personal projects even more tbh.

Why don't you look for a similar job to the one you had at Apple in other companies?

Go to the gym or play ball. You live in nice climate, should be warm all year long. Pick up a basketball, it's a great time killer if you love playing, plus obviously it's a good healthy thing to do.

Please don't turn into another Justin. For the love of God, don't.


Job growth numbers are rising each and every day. You will find something. When in doubt, I'm sure there is some call center somewhere in your neighborhood. They're ALWAYS hiring.

i would rather kill myself. i've done a call center before. not only does the job suck, but the quality of people is absolute rock bottom.

i'm actually applying at our competitors, google(waymo) and cruise(gm).

both pay less and don't offer the same bennies, but it's a job to hold me over for 6 months until i join the service.

Go on a Royal Caribbean Cruise if you're really bored.

those vacations are super cheap these days. Still haven't been on one yet.
