My apologies, Tumblr friends. This is probably not the last time you will see a post about my job hunting woes. The fact of the matter is that with graduation approaching in one week, that brings me closer to the dreaded day when student loan deferrals can no longer be used. I love my current (part-time) job and have no intention of leaving, but I need an additional job that will bring in exponentially more money. And by “exponentially more money”, I mean I can actually pay back my student loans monthly and still have enough money to help out my family with bills (my two biggest concerns).
Tumblr friends, I’m sure most (if not all) of you know how the job market is. Some people may even think I’m crazy for pursuing a career in the nonprofit sector…and maybe I am. But I am hardworking, driven, optimistic, and passionate about improving the quality of life for others. In the words of a lady I met at Starbucks a few weeks ago, “How the f*ck can one of the richest economies in the world not afford to take care of its own people?” (true story). I’m one of those crazies who believe that with enough support, manpower, and education (in and out of the classroom, peeps), people can get band together to get things done and improve the quality of life in our communities.
With that said, please send prayers and positive vibes this way & I’ll return the favor. I’ve started to feel somewhat discouraged and have (over-dramatically) thought I might have wasted my time, money, and am pursuing the wrong thing. I know deep in my heart that this isn’t the case.
