The Truth About Life After College

Ramblings

Hi. It’s been a while. Well, not really, but to me it has, considering I started this blog nearly a week ago and I’m already kind of slacking on it. That’s my lazyness shining through. My bad. I’ll try to keep some sort of schedule with updating this blog. Possibly once a week or so.

No promises, though.

Anyway, since my last post, I’ve still had no such luck with my job hunt. Shocker, right? Yeah, okay, not really. After all, it’s not like something is just going to happen overnight. Great things take time.

I haven’t heard back from that CNN producer woman, though, which is vastly disappointing. My dad keeps talking to people, trying to find me something. It’s really nice of him. He wants to see me succeed just as much as I do. I know I can count on him for anything. My mom’s been helping me as well by sending me many job openings that are geared towards the field I want to go into.

Incidentally, I want to be a writer, in basically any way, shape or form. When I was younger, I wanted to be an author. Now, I’d still love to be an author, but I’ve broadened my horizon in terms of which medium I want to use. In my senior year of college in particular (just this past year), I took screenplay and play writing courses. Now, my dream is to become a sitcom writer. I’ve always loved television, even more so now, I think, since I’m not working or really doing anything right now, other than being lazy and going to the gym, haha.

Okay, my train of thought keeps derailing. So, about the job thing, still looking, but not really as of late. I’ve been slacking. I guess I’ve just been discouraged. People have told me the very opposite, to not get discouraged and to be persistent, but sometimes it’s just hard.

Still, I’m not a quitter. I’m writing my own story of my life. Just haven’t reached the next chapter yet. I’m just kind of in limbo right now. Maybe the pages are stuck together or something. Who knows.

Also, on a somewhat random note, I was pleasantly surprised when I got e-mail notifications letting me know that a few people liked my first post, and that one person is even following this blog now. And to that I say, thank you kindly; I sincerely appreciate it. That’s how things start, right? Starts out small at first, then through word-of-mouth and sharing, it begins to grow. Pretty soon I’ll have my own little cult following or something, haha. You will all be my followers.

Okay, that sounded mad creepy. I meant I’ll have a fan base. Maybe. Just maybe. Look at me, with my ego.

All right, I think that’s all for today. More to come soon. My life honestly isn’t interesting right now so it’s gonna be hard to entertain you guys (or should I say you, one person who’s following this blog), but I’ll do my best.

Really quick, on a side-note, my friend suggested that I start posting a story on here. She’s very smart and always has great ideas like that. She’s an artist and very awesome. πŸ™‚ Anyway, I think I just may take her advice and do that. I started writing a one act play a few weeks ago but haven’t gotten very far with it yet. We’ll see. I’ll try to pick up on it and possibly post it here one day.

All righty, bye for now! πŸ™‚
