gainfully employed

Global Unemployment

gainfully employed

lose employment
another degree
up the ying-yang

your platform
a catchy pitch
shiny resume
beefed up CV

contemporary economics
praise the few
sustainably styled
scrappy spirited

limelight, pride
shining star
your life’s
a rambling poem

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. “Your life’s a rambling poem.” — So many are, it seems!

  2. It would be funny if it weren’t so dead serious… Love ‘a rambling poem of a life’ though 🙂

  3. Hello.
    I agree 100%!
    Nice. Thanks for sharing & visiting.

    I’m with you on the no verification. I find some of the words impossible to decipher & like you said, when you have so many blogs to get through & 95% of them have WV, well let’s just say I have more gray hairs than anybody else! I’ve displayed the sign on my blog with a link back to you.

  4. So many acquaintances, particularly recent university grads, could tell this tale. Right for the times, but I think the times are changing.

  5. That’s one of the things I am truly thankful for – that is, I’m gainfully employed 🙂

  6. Good and concise. The attitude is great as well; you need to be expectant.

  7. Ah, I can empathize with the part about degrees.

  8. all too common occurrence these days!
