so finding a job when you haven't had one in a while? not so easy. especially when you find out companies discriminate against people who don't have current jobs.

i'm currently about $1000 behind, my electric will be turned off soon, my credit cards are all overdue and i cannot afford my meds when this month's batch runs out. if it weren't for ramen and trader joe's, i'd be starving. the person who left me like this was supposed to help since he abandoned me without warning, but now he refuses to answer and emails, phone calls or text messages. i'm seriously about to start taking shit to pawn shops. i have a killer bass amp that would hurt to get rid of, and a great deal of CD's i've already burned copies of. i'm about to go through all the boxes he left here for me to take care of until he "gets around to coming to get them" and start hocking shit since it's his fault i'm in this position.

i'm just furious, i guess. yeah, my life is much better without him, but some warning would have been nice. i wish i could just walk away from my responsibilities scott free.

unfortunately, i'm a grown-up.

There are different ways of formatting a resume to hide gaps in employment. Google has a bunch of links for it. Could you put in your DJing to help cover up gaps? I'm not sure how that would look, though I suppose it depends on the type of jobs you are applying for. School too- that is hardly slacking.

I'm sorry to hear how everything is going. And sad to hear how bad things must have been if your life is still better off without him. Have you looked into getting some sort of assistance? Even for just a short time. And yeah- he is a dick to just drop off the face of the Earth like that. And a dumb one if he left things with you like that.
