I need a moment

...to vent. I try not to make this blog too much about my personal life (though I guess that's sort of the point of a blog, huh?) but right now I just need to spill.

I finished my master's degree in May from a very good school in a very good program. I have a nice resume with numerous experiences, credentials, etc. And yes, I KNOW, the economy sucks right now. But I'm so unbelievably tired of this ridiculous process of job searching. I am very organized and methodical and devote a lot of time to it but it's been NINE MONTHS. ARGGG.

I am very well aware that things could be much worse. I have wonderful supportive friends and family, a roof over my head, food on the table, and health insurance.

But I hate feeling like the last 2 years of hard work were a waste.


OK, I feel better. Thanks for letting me whine. I promise I won't do it often. I'm going to go bind a quilt and listen to This American Life.


  1. Everyone needs to vent sometimes!! Feel free whenever you want, and may you find a job you love very soon!

  2. I'm sorry you're having such a tough time. It surely must be frustrating to have put so much time and effort into advancing yourself in your chosen field, only to feel stalled now. Your turn will come, and when it's the right job, you'll know it! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.

  3. Vent, vent, vent! My husband has been out of work for a year now but every time I mention it I feel the need to say "but I know a lot of people are hurting right now." Why can't we ever just complain and not make excuses for it?! I'm sick of being Molly Sunshine. Grrrr... lol


Kind words, funny stories, and recipes are always welcome. :)
