Still bored, no longer unemployed.

So my journey to go through all of my songs didn’t work out.  My iPod ran out of battery because I left it in my truck on a cold, cold night.  So not good!

The good news?  I found a job! It was about time!  It is not using my degree or anything, but it’s paying the bills. It is Monday through Friday from 10-7 and yes, it’s boring. I am a button-pusher. I click here, check there, verify this, approve that.  Look at this, match that, scroll here, stamp there, edit that.  Boring indeed!

Even better news? I took my content exam for my alternative certification and I passed. Woo hoo! My goal now is to take another exam and hope to land a teaching job by this Fall.  When that happens, I will no longer be a button-pusher, perhaps a paper-pusher?  I don’t know, but I know it will be great!

Since I now have a job, my blog will change. From Bored and Unemployed, to Post Grad, which is what I wanted to change it to before. Greatness!

The real Post Grad

So, in anticipation of this new movie, Post Grad, I have stopped to look at my life.  Maybe I should wait on that and just watch my life on the big screen.

Post Grad, a movie that recently came out in theatres, is about a recent college grad who has to move back in with her parents and struggles finding a job after going to several interviews.  Well, move over Alexis Bledel, that movie was made from my life, and sadly, many others’ lives. 

I too am a recent college graduate, had to move back in with my parents and have been on several nerve-racking interviews and am still unemployed.  I am even starting to think that college was a waste of time.  Maybe I should have skipped my pursuit of higher education and stayed working full time.  Who knows, maybe I could have been manager somewhere by now, or better yet, at least still had a job. 

Nowadays, if you have a job, you are considered LUCKY in my book. 

It’s sad that a college degree can’t really do much.  It used to be that if you had a degree, you were set.  Now?  Who knows, maybe you need a Master’s degree but who has the money to go back to school if you can’t even find a job?

I hope my “post grad” life gets better.  I need to pay off my student loans!!!

I am thinking of changing my blog name to “Post Grad.”  Fitting, don’t you think?  Vee’s Blog was only temporary anyways.  Do you think I will get sued for copyright?  I should know this.
