Confessions Of An Unemployed Coconut

I am unemployed! Yep, it means I am broke 362 days a year ( except on my birthday and on Christmas because my family actually blesses me during that time). Being unemployed has made me kind of a dragπŸ˜‚ like they are certain things I do that make my friends hate me. Do wail or relate but above all just laugh out loud.

  • I can’t relate to month end excitement.

Uhmmm, I am really sorry I have the same mood January to December πŸ˜‚ because I am just but unemployed and broke.

  • I always want you to be online

I can’t help telling you what I saw on The Doctors πŸ˜‚. I am just but a Housewife but in my case more of a decorated lazy couch potato with no hubby or kids.

  • I feel sorry for myself half the time

Like am I cursed? Or just not connected enough. Please email me a job notice, please.

  • I am no longer cool

Like why you hanging out with your work friends without me?πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Being unemployed is hard but here are few tips to stay sane and look like you got your life together.

  1. Find a hustle you can do to at least afford to buy something for yourself. Think Avon, Inuka, hairdressing(if you can plait that is), tutoring and babysitting.
  2. Get a gratitude journal. Thank God for small mercies ie waking up (i know it’s hard when your bank account says $0.00)
  3. Work out. If I am being honest the willpower to skip goes with your wallet but just do maybe 10 situps to stay in shape and look amazing for that coming job.
  4. Apply for jobs. They will be many shut doors but God ain’t sleeping on you (or me) it shall open.
  5. You will get sad and totally lose it 😭 Take care of your mental health at this difficult time.

Till next timeβ˜•

  1. Girl!!!!! You are my sister from another mother, I promise. I have purposed to deal with the unemployment period with Grace. I am applying for all sorts of things and I have been doing some volunteering to keep my CV active. Mehn, 2019 has been a year like no other. And Amen to the exercise otherwise the kilos will just try to creep up on you. I have also tried to steer away from emotional eating. I keep track of my testimonies everyday and every month. I came up with a folder on my laptop called the testimony box. Last but not least I am working on my long-term side hustle. Aunty is going to bake.
