Unemployment Diaries: Tell us your story

For three days, a group of unemployed men and women in the area kept diaries for The Washington Post, detailing how losing their job has altered their routines and perspectives throughout their days. They include an architect, an iPhone applications designer, a housekeeper and an editor. A series exploring their words will run next week, including full texts of these Unemployment Diaries here on Story Lab and video of some of the participants in this project. But we also want to hear about your experiences if you've recently lost a job and are still searching for employment. Please tell us exactly what you now do with your days and evenings and how those hours have changed since you left your job (or your job left you.) Give us the lowdown on how you fill your mornings, afternoons and evenings. In what ways, big and small, has your life changed? Share your Unemployment Diaries with us on YouTube and Here's how to do it:
