Dead Ends

January 16, 2008 at 6:01 am 2 comments


Today was my last first day of school.  When I finished high school I was so happy to get out of there and move on.  But now in college, I can’t say I’m happy to leave or want to stay…I just know it’s time to move on.  After being in the same place for four years, nothing really suprises me.  I know what to expect on campus and have an extreme comfort zone.  I guess you could say I’m famous for my comfort zone.  I love living in my own little world where nothing bothers me, which is why I rarely leave it.  Yet at the same time I think it’s finally time to grow up. 

Although I’m at school I’m still just a short car ride away from my parents.  That’s not to say I want to pack up my things and move to the Middle East, because let’s face it my arabic isn’t good enough.  All I know is how to say is things like bathroom, different foods, and swears….don’t think that would get me too far.  But I would not want to move to an area that I didn’t know anyone.  I would love to move with a friend or a cousin, because I need some stability if everything else is changing.  Even with all of this about to change, that part gives me very little stress ( just the other day I took my blood pressure, and it was so low, everyone around me was wondering why I was still breathing).  The part that stress me out the most is finding a job. 

I feel like I’m not qualified to do much of anything. All of the jobs I’ve read about require at least a year of experience, and just out of college, I don’t have that.  I’m not even sure what industry I want to go into.  I’ve thought about fashion, magazines, retailers, and hospitality, but they all lead to dead ends.  Any suggestions?

    Theres plenty of entry level jobs out there. Most start at about 30K which obviously sucks, but they are there.

    Hotel Management seems like a cool field. Ditto to starting at the ground level of some sort of PR firm.

    One recommendation though…well actually two…

    One: Stay out of sales if you like staying in a comfort zone. Getting rejected isn’t a whole lot of fun. The money can be good…..but trust me…theres much better jobs out there.

    Two: Look into stripping. Great money, you stay in shape, and if your lucky…you could meet a sugar daddy and all your money problems would be solved. Also: easy access to drugs and booze.

    …as always…i hope ive helped
