A Case of The Blahs

I have a serious case of the blahs. I am in a rut, a serious one. I have always had some sort of a side job while going to school and have been in school for the last 4.5 years. Now I have neither of these. I am so anxious about getting a job that it is stressing me out and it is basically the only thing on my mind.

I went to a job fair where we live last week. 900 people where there, or so the news station that was covering it said. Yes, 900. It was a circus. I felt so hopeless. I did get 4 pre-screening interviews but haven't heard anything yet. I didn't know that finding a job after graduation would be like this. I feel so defeated. I know after this week, I can hit the pavement hard and hand dropping off my resume but I hate not knowing in the back of my head that in August, I will be employed.

I know God has a plan and that everything works out for a reason, I really do, but dang-it, I am so impatient.

I don't blame you. The process is very stressful. However, it has been my experience with schools where I have worked that they don't typically get into hiring mode (meaning moving beyond looking at possibilities, to posting a job, to interviewing, etc.) until the school year has concluded. It is awful for those of us looking, but that time will be coming soon. I hope that makes you feel better. Something good will come so you can relax and enjoy your summer! :)
