State of the Fay

(Taken from a friend on LJ.)

You know how sometimes people on your friends list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think, “Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when?” And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.

Please copy the topics below, erase my answers and put yours in their place, and then post it in your journal! Please elaborate on the questions that would benefit from elaboration. One-word answers seldom help anyone out.

NAME: Tristan A. Arts, AKA Fayanora

AGE: 27

LOCATION: Portland, OR since 08/01/2007

OCCUPATION: Unemployed, looking half-heartedly since 9/08.

PARTNER: Don't really have one. Not particularly looking. My capacity to feel romantic love is currently AWOL.

KIDS: None. Couldn't afford any, anyway.

SIBLINGS: One younger sister, gonna be 18 tomorrow. And an older half-sister I didn't grow up with. No idea how old she is.

PARENTS: Mom and Dad, still alive, still together.

PETS: None.

LIST THE 3-5 BIGGEST THINGS GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE:

1. Have to find a new place to live by February.

2. Pretty much given up on looking for a job. Trying to dig myself out of depression enough to apply for disability (Asperger's plus chronic depression) and get low-income housing.

3. That's pretty much it.

Number two, there, ain't festive. Unless you have some serious physical issues, go apply at a 7-11 or someplace. (Don't be like the woman I overheard, laid off from BMW, who insisted on “$25/hr or nothing.” Guess which she got.)

Remember, it's always easier to get a job if you already have one, no matter what it is.

From what I recall from entries I've been privy to, she has been.

Faye's been applying to all kinds of jobs, including minimum wage jobs, without success.

Yeah, it doesn't help that you're looking for work in the worst job market in over 25 years. It's rough out there, I know. Hopefully you can get your housing situation sorted out, though... that sort of instability, having dealt with a house fire, I know how unsettling it can be. You've got my sympathies.
