It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here, so I should update you on recent news.
As friends on Facebook know, I was extremely excited to start employment at a local realty agency as their marketing and social media specialist. Three days before I was supposed to start, I received an email (not a phone call) to give me the news that after some research, they decided it was cheaper not to hire me.
I was very excited to start a job after three and a half months of unemployment, use my brain, meet some new people, and get out of the house.Earlier that morning, before I got that email, the lease on my place in Boulder ends at the end of April, but they asked to extend it through August instead. I didn’t have any reason to be in Boulder because I had a job in Colorado Springs, which would give me some independence back. But within a couple of hours I didn’t have that job anymore.
I’m extremely disappointed that I have to look for jobs again. My experience has been in the outdoor industry, and there aren’t so many down here- I know a lot of people in Boulder and hope I could find a job pretty easily.
I guess it’s good to stay down in Colorado Springs, though, because my parents are here, and I’m back at the stage of life where I need them. I’m very lonely, because I have very few friends down here. Tonight, I have the Colorado Springs Young Professionals meeting, and I planned on going to a young adult weekly meeting at a church (kind of like a bible study, I guess) so hopefully I’ll expand my comfort zone.
