I've Lost Hope

I had an interview this past weekend for something in which I thought was a great opportunity, but in fact it turned out to be a sales position at Sam's Club.

I am very sad and have lost hope in myself finding a job.  I feel like I am a great worker, I have great work ethic and I am devoted to an employer for years, but no one is really going to give me a chance.  Why?  Because my resume says I'm not experienced enough.

I don't want to sit here and brag about how I can't get a job because I know there are so many of us out there.

I just want advice on how I can gain experience and tips on where to apply so that I can get that job. 

I have been applying like crazy and have been interviewing as well, but I just don't have what experienced candidates have. 

This interview was a reality check for me.  I didn't see what was coming even when it was right in front of me. 

I was really bummed and almost broke out crying, but my bf was trying to help me feel more positive and be positive.  He said, "It was a good learning experience and practice." 

Maybe I really should just go back to school for my graduate degree. 

Please let me know if you have any tips on job searching, applying, and interviewing!  I need some advice because clearly I am doing something wrong.

It's Been a While


It's been a while since the last time I sat and wrote a blog post or wrote in my journal, yes actual pen and paper.

Life as everyone sees it has been flying by.

There's been a lot of things that have changed and things that have stayed the same.

I am for sure trying to relocate now and have an interview this weekend!  I'm super excited for it and none of my employers know, nor do my parents.

I am ready for change and a challenge.  Change in my eating habits, and a challenging workout.  I am ready to move on with my life and not feel like being held back, which is how I feel at this point and time.

Being someone who has always been there for my parents and family, I think it's time that I be more in control of my life based on my own decisions.  At the end of the day I'm the one who makes the decision to turn off the lights.

I don't want to be sitting in the same chair this next summer.
