today, i went to the unemployment office for my 4-week check-in. you have to do that to keep getting unemployment benefits. the office is at 17th and paseo. and i didn't fit in. gasp! was i surprised? no. this city is so segregated it's insane. i mean, really. and i knew that choosing that unemployment office meant i was going to stick out as a white girl in a hot pink shirt with a tattoo on her arm. and i did stand out. who cares? i didn't.
but what i do care about is how dumb it is that i have to go to an office like that once a month, sit down at a computer, type in my name and pin number and that's it. THAT'S it? yep. so lame, right?
the system sucks.
