Well, I haven't written a blog post in a while and it's because I'm not sure what to say. I mean, by now everyone knows that we graduated and it was really cool to have my family there to celebrate it with us. A lot of people were surprised with how many we had there, but my immediate family is eight people and then adding in a few more and you already have a lot of people. But that was fun.
A lot of people enjoyed the article with the Roanoke Times we did that came out the day before commencement and we even got recognized at our local mall because of it recently. The woman even said that we're '[insert hometown here]'s local celebrities'. Not wanting to have a big ego I tried hard not to laugh at it because if that were the case, I'm sure we've been 'local celebrities' for years even before we graduated high school.
Now all we're doing is starting summer, getting ready for Steph going off to her internship over the summer, Mere going to ODU over the summer and...trying to find a job. That's what's really frustrating to me. I see so many of my peers getting interviews and whatnot and even when I was in college I couldn't get an interview or a internship to save my life. Recently I've done a bunch of phone interviews (mostly because I wasn't home around the time to do a interview where I went in) and have been turned down from basically every job I've applied to. I'm waiting to hear back from some more before I start out again but it's very discouraging and scaring me. Especially considering I don't want to live at home for a long time trying to find something and I don't know if it's me or what that's not getting me hired.
Like I said, I can get to the initial interview portion otherwise they just look at my resume and don't talk to me to see what sort of thing I know about the company or how much interest I have in what the company is about before they tell me 'no'. Thankfully I got the phone number to the HR department of a place I'd really like to work...and have no idea what to say when I call them.
At this point I'm trying not to compare myself to my peers so much but it's really getting daunting and frustrating and I'm practically screaming at the sky 'can at least one person just give me an interview/hire me?!'.
I'm sure everyone's felt that at one point and it's like my Mom, Dad, and brother say, all I have to do is wait for one 'yes' and that's it.
But I've never been a person that was very patient. I guess that's just my energetic personality getting the best of
Loves anything red. Rock music, playing the guitar, drawing, writing, tattoos, and sports are some of my interests and hobbies. I like to laugh, I like to think I'm funny. I talk a lot...just a warning.
