I flinch when I tell people that I am unemployed, so now I’m saying, “I write for a website.”
I’ve also said, “I work from home.”
Additionally, “I consult.”

The 18-year-old got a chance to redeem herself Tuesday on NBC’s “Today” show when she was again asked why one-fifth of Americans can’t locate the U.S. on a map.
“I would love to re-answer that question,” Upton said. “Well personally, my friends and I, we know exactly where the United States is on our map. I don’t know anyone else who doesn’t. And if the statistics are correct, I believe there should be more emphasis on geography.”
