Not telling you goodbye.

So where have I been? Or rather, where haven’t I been? Avoiding telling you goodbye. So, I’m not going to do it. I have too many stories I haven’t told you yet about my trip to Asia.

Right now, however, the only traveling that I’ve been doing is back and forth from my computer screen to the kitchen. I’m job hunting. Apparently I’m not chesty enough to work in a front office, and I’m not experienced enough to do much else.

Today I got calls for two interviews… I was so excited. I immediately googled the companies to see what they were about. One of the jobs is “events management,” which I soon discovered means selling bootleg t-shirts in a parking lot… and the other job, well, it’s actually for the same company- super sketchy, they go by different names. I’ve never laughed so hard while crying.

Why did I think it was going to be easy? Alright, I didn’t think it was going to be easy, but I didn’t think that it was going to be this hard… having a degree from such a fine university as SMU, volunteering extensively, not asking for a high salary or benefits…

And maybe I’m a little disappointed because I thought that being unemployed was going to be great. Watching day time television, eating junk food, not having to write papers all the time. But now I can only tell the passing of the days by the new stains on my pajamas, and the man with twenty-five kids on the Montel show didn’t make me feel any less sorry for myself.

I’m in a funk. But it will get better. Right? If not, will you buy a shirt from me in the Albertson’s parking lot?
