    Frustrated Is A Colossal Understatement!

    I can't even begin to describe my frustration at being unemployed! I hate it. While I am freelancing at the moment (and have been on and off for the past decade), it's not regular income. I completed my master's in 1.5 years and my bachelor's in 2.5 years and it's been 8 months...

    I Feel Lied To.

    I've been told since I started kindergarten that if I did well in school I would be able to get a good job. So, I buckled down and charged forward, receiving only one A- in high school to graduate as salutatorian of my high school senior class. I then went on to a good college...

    No Rest For The Wicked.

    Long story short, I grew up poor and had nothing. In high school when all the rich kids were punting around pigskins, I was busting tires at the local docal tire shop. When my senior year came up, I was scared out of my mind because I had no way of making it on my own. My parents...

    Was An Education Really Worth It?

    My Bachelors was easy. I had a good man, a place to live away from my mother, and I worked steadily on campus in the bookstore. I had it by the time I was 21, and entered the Masters program. I couldn't keep my position in the bookstore anymore to make time to work on my thesis...
