Chicago! I lived in Chicago, a city of contradictions ... so many rich, so many poor. Always knew winter was coming when the plastic Jewels bags were wind wrapped in the tree limbs Anywho, I love me. It starts with that. Being unemployed is a temporary situation, it does not define you. You know, there was a time several years ago in this craptastic economy that I got laid off from my high paying graphics/publishing job and I had to take a job at Walmart. After being unemployed for quite sometime, I was damn proud to walk into that store and know that I was working, getting a check, and doing a great job. Eventually got back into my field, but just working, at any job, really lifted my spirits.
