Assistance and Job Search
In order to receive cash and food assistance I have to work 30 hours a week or at least be job searching and have proof. Considering I am only working my actual job about 15 hours a week its been a struggle. I work for my ex-boyfriend (the tummy monster's father) which is kind of rough too.
So, I'm looking for a data entry, call-center, administrative, receptionist, ANYTHING other than factories and food service. There aren't a lot of opportunities for retail positions in my area so that's a hard job to snag, even if it isn't completely desirable, its better than the alternative. I guess this is what I get for staying in BFE after high school.
This pregnancy has pushed me to want to be better. I want to go back to school in the fall. Computer Science is the goal right now, or web design. Something marketable.
If anyone has any tips or words of wisdom I would love to hear it.
The program was through Department of Human Services and Michigan works. They make it horribly difficult (understandably) to receive assistance. I may try again in the future but I'm exhausted with it and although I would love to have food that I actually like, given my current living circumstances with family I'm not going to starve.
