Hello it’s me. I haven’t blogged in a while, and that’s because I normally only do when something in my life drastically happens.
I graduated from college eight months ago. Eight. And I can’t possibly put into words how crazy that is.
When I graduated I thought, ‘Oh I’ll be fine. I’ll get a job soon after I graduate. I’m not worried.’ Well damn was I wrong. It took me more than half a year to find a full-time job and it’s not exactly in the field I have a degree in (but not necessarily a bad thing either).
The process of finding one is a series of demoralizing experiences, or at least it was for me. I spent many weeks feeling worthless. I hated when people asked me what I did for work or if I had a job. I felt like I was being judged because I didn’t already have one. I was told that something will come, or I’ll find something, and that I have time… all that BS. But I still felt like a pathetic loser.
In the end, everything worked out as part of God’s plan. I accepted a job at a 5-Star resort in the North Country, and I moved to a town that’s home of two Olympic Winter Games. It took me eight months, but I’ve come to realize that it was worth the wait. I now live on my own and I’ve never felt more like an adult than I do at this very moment.
To anyone still struggling to find a job, it does get better and you will find something.
