What is it like to be on unemployment? Specifically, I have a few questions about being on unemployment I'd like to ask.

I live in Wyoming. My wife lives in Denver. I'd like to live in Denver too. I haven't been able to find a job there, so I'm considering going back to school.
The state of Wyoming is having a budget crisis and the place where I work has to trim 8% of our budget, so I'm guessing people are going to be laid off. I might be one of them. If I am, and I go on unemployment, can I:
1) Be on unemployment while I get a Master's degree?
2) Still get unemployment from Wyoming if I move to Colorado?
I'm generally curious about what it's like to live "on the dole." Assuming I'm financially pretty secure and going to school, is there anything else to be stressed out about?
