    Tired of everyones opinions and thinking I'm lazy

    I am so tired of people and their reactions to my unemployment. I have now been unemployed for 10 months. I have not had any job offers in this time. I have been applying for at least 3 jobs a week sometimes over 9 a week on a good week. (Over 200 applications and counting to date.) I look through about 70 email feeds from job sites about 5 days a week. I don't see what else I could be doing. I...

But that career never panned out, and so I did a few temp jobs...

    Train Up
