Looks like its back to Atlanta soon, folks!

Hello my readers (if you're out there)! Well it looks like I'm headed back to Atlanta at the end of next week and doing a bit of job hunting (hopefully). It's hard being a long distance relationship. It's especially hard since in the beginning of our relationship we practically lived together. And now...we're 1000 mi apart. We know that we're supposed to be together, but with the current job climate, being unemployed means home with the parents...FUN! We both wouldn't mind living in either city, but we both can't afford to move anywhere without a job first. My sister moved to Nashville for 8 months and couldn't find a job and had to come all the way back home. I just can't do that. If I leave I want it to be for GOOD. But...nothing without a job. So recently I've been using my boyfriend's address as my info when applying for jobs.

My mother suggested that I apply to be a pharmacy technician, just for the time being and to pay the bills. It doesn't sound BAD I guess...I just wish I could find a job in my field. I know I know I'm being a typical whiny 20-something...I guess when I get back I'll have to just suck it up and do it. My student loans are going to be up soon and I went to school for extra time...I just changed my major really late in the game! Not cause I'm a partier--trust me I would have rather graduated on time and gotten a job like all the other people who I would have graduated with!!

Well my readers, I am getting very very sleepy--enjoy the night and I'll be back tomorrow (I promise!) and I'll still sign off--

I'm getting lazy!

Sorry sorry internet, I need to keep up on this blog writing! Well today I spiced up my usual walk around the pond with actually running for a bit! It was hard, I honestly haven't really ran since high school, on the tennis team, but it really felt great afterwards. The pond has lots of landmarks that I would run between. It felt great to establish a goal and achieve it. Albeit a small goal, but at least I accomplished something..for once. I sent my resume out to a recruiter in Atlanta for some "creative" jobs. As proud as I am to finally get back on the job-apping horse, I know I'll never hear from them. Just like all the other jobs that I haven't heard from. I just want to get going on my life as a grown up. I want to get out of my parents' house and create my own home.

I was thinking of contacting my alma mater or my department head to see if they had any suggestions. I just don't want to look desperate or stupid or get back an "Everyone else you graduated got a job already, why haven't you?" email. NO STOP--POSITIVE THOUGHTS FROM HERE ON OUT!! I need to stop being so negative. Positive things happen to positive people or at least that's what I'm going to tell myself...

So Internet with great smiles (some forced...) I sign off still yours and...

I mean its not like I'm busy or anything...

Since my return from Atlanta, I feel that my life is just blah. NO responses, NO emails, NOTHING!! ugh I am getting really depressed. I applied to a part time job this weekend and I haven't even heard anything from them! I've thrown myself into exercising--walking the pond, eating better, not eating as MUCH. And I still just feel like I'm never going to get a job. However, I am going to Atlanta again actually pretty soon! So hopefully this time I can get more interviews scheduled while I'm down there. I just want to be settled somewhere; with a job, my bf and our cat (I really miss that fuzzbutt!) ugh this whole job thing is just really bumming me out. The days are starting to blend together and I can't sleep at night. I just need something to come in...ANYTHING!! PLEAAASE EMPLOYERS OUT THERE!! Seriously I think it wouldn't be that hard just to send out a NO email to people who applied, just so people, like me, won't be hanging on for your job posting!! SO my readers, on that note...I am still (un)happily

Whoa Long Time, No Blog!

Hello my (non-existent) readers! I am so sorry I've been so busy! I just got back from Atlanta yesterday and I came back with a great sinus infection from the pollen...gross. BUT I think I'm pretty much sold on the idea of living down there. I feel like if I stay in Boston, I'll be stuck at my parents' house forever and that doesn't sound like fun. Plus all my friends, my boyfriend live in the south. I'm DYING of boredom here. I really need a job soon. I've actually agreed to clean my aunt's house in return for money. First things first, I have to get over this sinus infection thing before I start hitting the part time job scene so I don't look like I'm diseased. I also got a little networking done while I was down in Atlanta. Networking is really big now--using your contacts to your advantage was pretty much hammered into my head by one of my (least favorite) professors. But my boyfriend's friend works at a recruiting agency--uh hello? Why didn't I know of this earlier?? I gotta send her my resume! I'm still scarred from that last company that just up and changed their mind and I still can't believe I still haven't heard from any of the companies I've applied to. It really sucks because I've only applied to jobs I thought I was well qualified if not more than qualified for. What am I doing wrong? I feel like everyone else in my graduating class has found a job except me. I feel like a failure sometimes. And when June comes around and my loans start pouring in, I'll have nothing saved...The fun is starting to run out and I really need to get a job soon. But so far...I'll still be...

bad day, good day

So today, I sent off my design test to the company I was going to interview with next week. I was so nervous about sending it, I decided to go to the pond to take a walk. When I got back, I saw that I had received an email from the HR guy. Apparently the guy who currently held the position that I was going to interview for decided to stay and that they didn't need me to come in and do the interview. I was so sad. I can't believe the company let the guy just change his mind when they already started reaching out to potential replacements. SO I tried to get back in the job search game today, but I just couldn't do it. I worked so hard on this test and I felt like it was really good. The good news however, I got money from a missing account that my late grandfather left for me! The state of Florida recently contacted me, telling me that I had an unclaimed bank account and I got the check today! Unfortunately, it pretty much went to all my bills...BUT that meant I didn't have to use my savings...again. I also plan on giving some to my alma mater!
Right now I'm watching my fav show: Project Runway and they brought back Anthony who, I feel, was unfairly sent home last week...ugh and that ho jessica alba is a guest judge...lame.

Well readers, my quest for a job continues and I still sign off as...
