Making life changes.
Posted by btchakir
Today I got my hair cut and I started filing job applications, something I haven’t done since I retired, off of Craig’s List. There were four local jobs I felt qualified for, so I answered the ads for them. The biggest reason, of course, is that being retired is boring… and even though Social Security is adequate, I would just as soon have some or all of it cut back (depending on the income I get from a part-time or full-time job) and have something to do that I don’t have to invent myself.
I think I’m going to do a little bit of hair and mustache dying as well… perhaps if I look 55 instead of 65 and no one asks my age a job will come along easier. Ever since I was laid off (with my whole Department) at CSC a few years ago, right at the beginning of the deadly recession, and started my long and unsuccessful job search, I have felt simply OLD. It’s hard to work with that feeling, but I’ll get over it.
I’m not really sure I can get anything, but I’m sure going to try.
