Regular American Dream…

It’s almost been a month since I graduated, and I feel so anxious to do something with this “degree” already! I’ve been sending out my resume to people left and right and I’ve gotten to luck. Although I can’t work till after my internship is over, I would at least like to be given an interview and see where the chances go from there. I’m really aiming to obtain an opportunity that will allow me to start working August 1st…the Monday after my internship is over! Yes, I know, I’m quick, but I rather jump right into something than to wait around. I’ve been doing it my whole life, and I think it’s better this way. A lot of people took a break after high school to gather their thoughts and go to the “school of their dreams”, I didn’t! Even though I would have loved to take a break, I started college right away! I started my internship the day AFTER my graduation! No resting time from anything there. I just feel more confident this way. I stay on top of my game and I’m already used to the schedule. Now, the question on my mind today is…what in the world do recent graduates do!? I’m sitting here, emailing resumes and trying to find my first job, and I’m getting no luck! I really hope I don’t end up having to work my minimum wage job for another year because I’m going crazy there already! It’s not a bad job, but I dislike giving up my weekends…I just want to be a regular American with a 9-5 Monday through Friday job…Where are you at Uncle Sam!? Help me out?…

I just may know what I want to do now…

Since high school, we have been programmed to choose our destiny, what do you want to do in life is the big question. Honestly, I don’t have the slightest idea as to what I should want! Does anyone out there really know? I hear from so many people that I’m not the only lost person out there, but I feel that if I don’t have a goal, then I am running without any direction. Now that I have my bachelor’s and I’m job hunting, I think I may just have a goal…I WANT TO BE A COPYWRITER! Aah! I’m freaking out about it! Ha ha! When I started college I wanted to be a copywriter, that’s why my concentration was advertising, but as time went by I changed my mind to public relations, marketing and now back to square one. I have been watching Mad Men and I can proudly say that it has inspired me to go back to copy writing. It will be hard! But I think I can do it. I’ve always been very open with ideas, therefore I think I will fit in well when I find a nice company to contribute to. I’m also looking for an upbeat, exciting, and creative place to work at and what’s better than with fellow creatives? I’m searching for that place that will welcome my weird self to their company. I wish I could find that home soon, but I think that the quest for this first job will be a long one. I have sent out my resume to about 20 places thus far, and I have only gotten two replies with bad news. I’m not getting discouraged though; I knew I would be anticipating many turn downs due to my lack of experience. I’m so excited to get an interview! I want a real job already, so tired of working and not learning anything helpful! I want to be able to talk about my job with a huge smile on my face and brag about how much I love working there. I can’t wait to start somewhere!
