Post It

I have been really slacking in the blogging department lately.

Mostly what I have been doing is job hunting.
One would think that once you graduate that you would have a job 
to help pay off student loans.
However, all that has happened for me is that
I am everyone's second choice.
I am tired of coming in second.
I want to be first for once.
And my life experience tells me that I will always come in second
So I am having a hard time seeing the glass half full
instead of half empty
And each passing interview confirms it anew for me
And really? Who cares if I can label the diamond
that defines Comp Guidance?
In real life I can look that up
But wouldn't you rather I knew how to deal with 
a suicidal teen, or change your schedule
or know what you have left to take to graduate
or how to help you with your grief and pain?
And I am a dang good counselor
So hire me already.

That and a bunch of stupid life/family issues are really draining me.
I hate when someone else's choices cause hurt and pain and fear
for me and my kids.
And that those choices leave me with a choice between
bad and worse.

I did get a summer job.
I will be working at Target as a cashier.
Can I help you find something?
Did you find everything today?
Thank you for shopping at Target and have a nice day.

My cheeks hurt just thinking about it.

So I am going to try to blog a bit more.
I stole this 30 day blog list from my niece
I think I'll try it anyway for the month of June

So if I pull it off 
here is a "menu" of what you can look forward to.
If I'm not too tired.
(surgery on Friday to fix that toe I broke in Sept. Still not healed)
