Oh the Shame

At the end of this month, I will have turned 30 years old. Ugh... and um, can I get another ugh?

Today, I went down to the local VFW post, and I voted. But not just any vote. I voted for the very first time in my life!!! I know I know, the shame of it!

I've never been into politics however. Quite frankly politicians are slimy and evil.

However right now, is a very scary time for this country. I know alot of people sit in thier very warm little bubbles of security and are patiently awaiting the "recession" to begin. But for my family it already has.

I was laid off at the end of the summer. I have now been unemployed for over 2 months. Despite the fact that I have a degree and am very nearly finished with my MBA, I have yet to recieve a job offer. I've been on 8 interviews.

There is just so much competition right now. Its not easy to find a job.

The possibility of losing our house is no longer a shadow in the distance future, its more of a bright screaming scary red light only a few months away.

I've told myself that I just want to get through the holidays, and will then deal with this mess after all of that is over. Its scary... its uncertain... I pray every day that I find a job.

So yes, today was very important to me. I voted, I voted for a person I hope will help save this country out of the mess that Mr. Bush has so kindly put us in.

I voted for my family.... I voted for Obama.
