I’m really starting to see how much of an overly dramatic Leo I am with this blog post title but I like it so we are sticking with it my loves. I’ve just sent out my zillionth resume and cover letter and you’d think I’d be frustrated but surprisingly I’m not, instead I’m very optimistic like a caffeine addict, high off coffee and life babyyyyyy (no I’m not faking it, I’m really hopeful for reasons unbeknownst to me).
I’m okay with a steady 9-5 to be completely honest.Girl in Her Twenties
I grew up seeing the women around me always working, hard too so while I didn’t know what career path I would take, I knew I wanted a good job, one better than what my mom had and one that would eventually become a good career for me. Like I said in I Wanna Be Where The Money Resides!, I’m not aspiring to be crazy rich but your girl would like to be a homeowner before her late thirties, travel some countries, appease my online shopping addiction and take care of those around me; financial freedom is my goal not the desire to be rich.
When I compared my fresh out of high school 2016 resume with my 2021 unemployed twenty something girl resume, I can see the growth and I feel proud. Jobs are hard to come by right now, it’s a whole pandemic still in play and most persons are unemployed and trying to re-enter the work force, it’s competitive and you might feel discourage but stay strong!
I understand and I have dealt with the feelings of frustration, depression and distraction through hours of binge watching Netflix series, I know how it all feels and I’m thankful for faith in God, songs like SZA ‘Good days’ and supportive friends and family because it’s hard when you want or need something and you are trying soooo hard but nothing is happening.
There was a quote on Instagram (yes, I’m always on Instagram because I have nothing going on in my life I’m single and unemployed LOL, you can follow me at _cassaniek_), anyways back to the quote, it said “this is just a chapter, not your whole story sis”, I have never forgotten this and I mentally repeat it like a prayer when I feel stuck or hopeless, bad days don’t last forever and good days aren’t savoured enough.
I’m going to bed now, the sun is coming up and I need to rest because I’ll be binge watching Too Hot To Handle Brazil on Netflix today (don’t judge me people).
Stay safe and hopeful!
