Unemployed Girl

It's amazing how Kazimir Malevich's "Unemployed Girl" is still relevant today even though it was painted in 1904. This is basically what the scene is like at my apartment. Except instead of that bench, it's an Ikea Ektorp armchair. Instead of a park behind me, there is a wall that is slowly closing in on me. Instead of the jaunty bowler hat, there's a backwards baseball cap that says "Aruba: The bar is open!" across the brim. It's sole purpose is to keep me from pulling out individual strands of my hair, which is what I do when I'm stressed out. I am wearing a tie but it's really more of an autoasphyxiation thing. Like this girl, I am also wearing last year's clothes because that was the last time I could actually buy clothes. That was a pretty genius touch on Malevich's part, by the way. Just look at that skirt. So 1903.

I'll post this again because I'm thinking eventually this is all going to sink in to your noodle. While you are looking for the next job why not become your own boss kiddo. I've read the traffic on your blog. With some tweaks it wouldn't take long for you to make money. Put that domain of yours to use. Upload a content management system into it. Set up a an account on something like BlogAds. Sure int the short term you will still need to seek work through other people but if you believe in your talent then use it to your advantage.

I've been out of work for a while and I'm feeling pretty useless. I don't have to worry so much about money because my husband has a great job, but I feel like I'm not contributing enough to the household. I do all the housework and stuff and make dinner, but I feel like that's something even working women do and I should be able to contribute monetarily as well.
