My Life Today

What else is a drag you ask (probably not, but I am going to share anyway)? Having a crush on a guy who doesn’t really want the future as you. I am trying to stay away, because I know the end result will be a disaster, but it is a struggle. He’s not even willing to look at jobs out of state. This is fine for him, but just proves we aren’t really a good match.

I have also begun searching for public/global health master’s programs. So far there are a few schools I like. I have also found some jobs that I like/am qualified for so I need to redo my resume.

It has also finally hit me that I graduated from college. Usually, by this time I would be working on summer classes (I took summer classes every year, along with being a full time student in the fall and spring for the last 4 years). While it feels weird to not be doing class work, I have a sense of freedom that I have longed for. I feel like a real adult, kinda.

Can Everyone Just Stop

This idea of people being lazy for not having a job really ticks me off. 1) The people saying this are on social media all day ready to spew their hate at the first chance, so chances are they don’t have a job 2) it isn’t exactly easy to get a decent job. In order to get a job you have to have experience in the given area. However, you don’t have experience because you have to have the experience to get a job that would give you experience. It’s a twisted cycle.

Thankfully I am able to work at the lab at the college I attended which gives me research experience and have been doing it for almost a year now. That’s not the point though. Not everyone is able to do something like this in their field. They just have to wait until something comes along and most likely work in a job that does not pay their bills. Yes, some people are lazy so they are jobless, but that isn’t everyone. Once again, it is easier to judge others, rather than looking at the big picture. Stop with the hate and spread love. That probably makes me a “snowflake”.

 

 

 

Post Graduation

Well, I’ve finally done it. I have a bachelor’s degree in biology and ready for the world…not really, but that’s what I’m telling myself. It actually hasn’t hit me yet.  The next few months I’m going to be here, there and everywhere, then it will be time to start really looking for a job. So far the jobs I am qualified for are in places I really don’t want to live. However, beggars can’t be choosers right? For right now I’d rather dream about days I’d rather dream about days in Caribbean, New York City, New Orleans, and where ever else I end up going.
