pardon me, but i’m still unemployed

this morning i heard on npr that the recession is over.  yes, morning edition asked me: “does the recession feel over to you?”

well, let’s see.  yesterday I spent four hours cleaning my parents’ house so that i could have a little extra cash.  despite my ‘amazing resume skills,’ (thanks, mom) i can’t find a job, so i’m contacting a temp agency today.  i’m considering selling the use of my body to a medical study.  and honestly?  i’m one of the privileged folks, you know, with sweet, loving, cushy parents to support me.

so, no.  the recession does not feel ‘over’ to me.
