Feelin' Blue

Not really feeling like blogging today. I am down in the dumps. To be honest I feel like my hard work in school is not paying off in the real world and it stinks.

Today Michael and I discovered, while searching for jobs for me, that an "Entry Level Staff Accountant" requires 2-3 years of experience. How do you enter something with experience?!? I don't understand. I just want to badly to have a job. yes yes I know, I have my whole life to work, BUT I/we have/are going to have at least $100,000 in debt if not more by the time Michael finishes school next year and that's just scary . I don't like it at all. not. at. all. Oh you have a Masters degree, you are halfway to attaining your CPA, and you work your behind off?! NO JOBS FOR YOU!

Not only is the lack of jobs frightening we also had a second opinion on our A/C today. Yep, it's totally broken, needs fully replaced inside and out and this dude was guessing around $3, know what just tack it onto our bill called life.

Darn it. I want to enjoy the fruits of my labor in school, AKA a job, but apparently I am either over or under qualified for everything. Due to this awful feeling I have  I was unable to make it to the gym to do the interval training I have been dreaming about. I guess since I will never get a job I will have plenty of time to workout in the future.... sorry for the drama queen exaggerating post...whew...I had to get that out.


  1. better to use your extra time working out than mastering pillsbury break and bakes, which is what i've done lately :) a job will come along, but it might not be what you want when you want it. try to enjoy now for what it is, though, because when you do start working in the super exciting field of accountancy, you'll really miss the down time.

  2. Job hunting is not fun! Don't panic though. Look for all kinds of jobs, even if they are part time, don't pay all that well or are slightly outside your field. You can always keep looking while you're getting a check. It's just one of those things you can't control and you can't plan for. Jumping that hoop out of school and into a job is kind of the final step in growing up, and it's a scary one. And MB is right - working actually sucks - you will miss having free time soon enough!
