365 Writing Prompts: Unexpected

Unexpectedly you lose your job( or a loved one, or something or someone important to you.) What do you do next?

If I lose my job unexpectedly, I’ll look for another job in town if I’m unable to find one I might move to another city.

Since I live in a smaller city,there is only a few vacancies, I’d have no choice but to look elsewhere. I can only look for teaching jobs,  yes there are jobs if I want to be a substitute teacher. It is not something I’d like to do, besides the regular teacher has to be sick for a job opening, also it  only depends on  who the Principal decides to call to teach that particular day.

The only other option for me is  to go back to school and register in a cooking school to become a chef. It does not sound very appealing to me, I’d have to study for how long I’m not sure, then after spending my savings what if I fail to get a decent paying job.

There is another possibility I may opt to sit at home and draw unemployment insurance, it would give me time to do some planning.

You know what losing one’s job is not a very good thing, I hope I won’t lose mine!
