I ran a red light yesterday. One of those roads without much traffic, but with a light in the middle of it? I saw the corner, saw no traffic anywhere around, but missed the light and totally blew through it. That's not something I do. I'm a very good driver, very safe. I guess I was just preoccupied with . . . well, Becky and I had been talking about jobs I was going to apply to and I just started thinking about the whole unemployment thing. It's been over seven months looking for jobs and being told no over and over and over. I handle stress really well, but that's a lot. I guess I'm starting to feel it a little bit.

Over the past week I've put in applications at United Health Group, Pizza Hut, Pondersa, Applebee's, Papa John's and Jimmy John's. Hopefully something pans out so I have some type of job while taking my class.


  1. Keep at it, Jack. Something will turn up and work out. I promise. :)

  2. Yeah, thanks. I'm sure it will. Just got a call from Pizza Hut a few minutes ago to get some information so they could look up my DMV record.

  3. Being unemployed is tough. I do hope something turns up for you soon. That red light you ran yesterday won't be on your DMV record, will it? ;-)
