Spread the love

Six months ago, I was fired from my job as an engineer – our factories don’t need engineers nowadays. We don’t need engineers, that’s all. Unless you want a quarter-time job, and if you don’t like it, quit. It was scary, but it was simply impossible to live on a quarter of the wage. I quit. I wonder what to do. I know how to work on the computer. I heard that you can find a job on the Internet. But I don’t have a computer!

I went shopping and realized that I couldn’t afford the credit. I started asking acquaintances, and a friend of my friend agreed to sell me an old computer for a quarter of the price in installments. Hooray! I took the computer! I know how to work, but I somehow need to find a job. I sit almost around the clock. Money is running out. I look at some sites, twisting them exactly, like a “monkey glasses”, somewhere to sign up, and the silence… Complete.

Guys I know promise: I’ll come and help you figure out where and what to write… and no one goes. I got angry… and I got into it all by myself! I found a suitable option for a creative job, wrote my CV. My brother said – well, now wait! And I can no longer wait. I ran out of money. I thought, it won’t be any worse, I just wrote the employer and attached my work. And he saw me and took it! There was no limit to my happiness. I got my first hundred bucks for my work! I bought a cake for all my ex-workmates. I went to their house, and their former boss said: “Maria, we’re not doing well here without you. Come back, I’ll give you a full-time job.

There you go. I fought for one thing and got another.

There was a new problem, though. My old computer broke down. But now I know that it’s definitely not a problem. After all, there are friends in the world. They assembled a consilium and my expensive computer was fixed, the only thing left is to reinstall the programs.

It was just a little episode in the life of an unlucky woman. But I know, I believe, that everything will be all right. Because there are friends in the world, and I myself do not give up and will not give up.
