Default On unemployment and im bored!

I am going to school for 13 credits, but its slow and easy. Now i understand why i liked working, because i did not have idle hands and i earned a descent wage.

Applied at Target, Walmart, Fry's, stocker jobs in random stores, Arizona State University, janitor, labor. Everyone wants experience in whatever and i don't have 3 to 5 years of general labor. Why do i need 3 to 5 years sweeping floors and picking up garbage? These requirements are getting stupid.

I can't take 26 credits because colleges don't allow such a thing and i wouldn't get anymore financial aid out of the deal anyway.

I am trying to save my mind with learning the piano on my own as well as reading extra books. Anyone else going nuts?

Hang in there, Wingster. Sounds like you're doing all you can to keep your mind healthy and your wits about you. Just keep on keepin' on, and eventually this too will pass...

One word for you w1ngzer0:

Volunteer.

I'm sure there are plenty of charities out there looking for free help - especially right now when demand for their services is so high.

It will keep you busy, help out your community in a time of need - and possibly even eventually help you land a job somewhere.

No one should complain about being bored when there is so much need for help for others even worse off than yourself.

I am working on volunteering for Mesa PD, but it is a 6 month process.

That's good, but find another charity to help out with in the meantime (I'm sure there is no wait at most of them).

What sort of wages are you looking for? I know of a few places that are hiring, not sure if you'd be interested or not though.

One of my hobbies is "scambaiting" It's fun and doesn't cost any more money than sending emails or chatting on these message boards.
Goggle "SCAMBAITING". Being a scambaiter is really fun but even just reading some of the scambaiters "baits" is entertaining.
