In order to collect unemployment, I have to provide a form called sf-50 which shows my current status as non-pay. I have a job but there is no work for me so I’m not getting paid. That’s part of the problem with these on-call positions.
I have the form. It was emailed to me earlier today. PDF is a fine format. Except. Except the only option for getting this item to the unemployment office is to fax it. I cannot email it or upload it to an account.
This gives me a chance for a small adventure tomorrow though. Apparently I can do these things for free at the local workforce office. Now notice that there is no local unemployment office, there is only the job placement office. This is mildly annoying but the big thing is to handle it for the lowest cost possible.
In other news, my roommates’ cat Hamlet is not doing well. The question is, do we let him keep going with poor quality of life or do we take him down to the vet and send him on his way. I’m glad I don’t have to make that decision. He is a sweet loving kitty who cannot walk properly any longer and who is not grooming himself. It’s not good. And yet, at what point do you decide for an animal that enough is enough? So sad.
Trying to maintain a good attitude. Visiting friends and family, keeping busy, going to support groups. I hope to make some art later today and take a shower. It feels like a good day for a shower. Study some Japanese, watch some anime. It’s going to be a good day.
