so, i just got an email from project wonderful saying that my site doesn't meet their criteria for having an ad space -- that the reason it was turned down was because there wasn't enough content here. i guess because i don't write a blog a day and have 30 blogs, i don't qualify.
lately, this has been the story of my life. i don't qualify for jobs i used to be a shoe-in for and now i don't even qualify for consideration for a stupid blog ad. it kind of makes u wonder, what, if anything, i'm qualified for. like -- am i worth anything??
the other day my daughter and i were having a discussion and i explained to her that after i stopped being a secretary and working in the real world to have children, i concentrated my life around being a wife and a mom. now that i'm no longer a wife (long story), and one of my children is grown (20) and the other will soon be going off to college (16), i feel like have no useful purpose in this world. its ridiculous, but its basically the way things have turned for me.
so, in an effort to keep my finances above water (so to speak), i decided to start looking for a real job in the real world, only to discover that the secretarial work i used to do is no longer something that is needed -- that's its much more extensive and guess what, i'm not qualified. don't think that wasn't a real shocker. because i've kept up all my typing and computer skills. one would think i could get a job. but that doesn't seem to be the case, so here i sit.
and evidently making jewelry doesn't count as a real job and evidently i'm not very good at that either because even though tons of ppl say they love my designs and the prices r good, nobody is buying anything. so yeah.... feeling just a little unneeded right now.... something has got to turn around soon.
