Well, for only the second time in 7 years, I am technically unemployed. I have resigned from Edward Jones and am waiting to start back with Moores this coming week. There has only been one other time since I got my first job that I have been technically 'unemployed', and that was when I left Moores to come to Edward Jones.

So, in the last 7 years, I will have been unemployed for a grand total of 5 days. Now, that includes me working as part time and everything, but I think that it's quite impressive that someone as young as I am has been able to stay gainfully employed for that long.

I look at some of my friends, some of whom don't even have jobs, and I don't see how I could still be at school like they are. I mean, I have a real life now, I'm married (first of all my friends), have my own home (first of all my friends) and I have a full time job (first of all my friends). I look at most of the people I know and I see them worrying about final exams and next year's courses, and I think to myself, 'wow, I don't have to worry about any of that'. Instead, I have to worry about rent, hydro, food, credit cards, phone bills, cable bills and things of that nature.

Maybe the college life isn't so bad after all. Just kidding.

Technically it's 'unemployed'not umemployed!
I swear you are a 40 year old in that young skin of yours. Good luck at Moores. You have to love what you do. Sometimes that is the more important than anything.
