I finally did it, you know that thing everyone encouraged you to do, Graduate and get your degree… Well I did it, and now what? I’m sitting here with a piece of paper that shows I spent 8 years of my life studying something that I absolutely love, Mass Communications, Mass Media, Journalism, whatever you want to call it, I have it.
Why then do I feel so helpless? I keep telling people that I am going to give myself 6 months to find a job that has to do with my degree because quite frankly working at Home Depot for the rest of my life does not seem like something that I want to do. I want to blog, I want to write, take photos and just show people my life experiences through my own set of words. So many people are expecting so much from me, and to be honest, I myself am expecting so much from me. I know I can do something amazing, but I feel so stuck right now. My greatest wish in 2014 is to find a passion, a purpose, and a place that deserves my time and talents.
I apply to at least 5 jobs a week. I get many interview offers, but when I research the company I realize that I do not want to be stuck in a place where I am not happy. Am I being too picky? No. I’m not, and I know that for a fact.
When I go work for a place I give them my all, my 110%. Yes, I might not love my job sometimes, but I make an effort to do my best at it and that is why I do not want to be stuck in a company where I will be working my butt off for nothing. I want my next career to count, to soar, to grow, and most importantly to learn.
So, now what? Now I write until I find that awesome job, so stay tuned because I am something big in the making. I trust myself, I trust my family and friends, but most importantly I trust God.
