pardon me, but i’m still unemployedPosted: 17/08/2009
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.
