I’m a recent victim of this horrible economy and was laid off from Microsoft in early 2009, which is the second layoff I’ve experienced in about 3 years. I started blogging after my layoff because I thought it might be fun to tell the world my stories from the land of unemployment. The ones about me sitting in house pants going unshowered for days on end and eating gallons of ice cream with a fork. Those kinda stories. Stories that other unemployed people can relate to and stories that give our employed friends insight into the daily happenings of the unemployed.
This blog is meant to make light of a rather difficult situation, which is why unemployed people should start referring to oneself as a lord or lady of leisure (an LOL) vs. a jobless loser. By using this positive phrase, you might just fake your subconscious into thinking that everything will be ok and you are simply enjoying your leisure time.
