So its been almost 2 months since I've graduated from UTEP and I still cant believe I don't have to wake up every morning and go to school. With that said, I have been job searching and job searching since I walked. But it still feels awesome that I can sleep in and not worry about textbooks or materials for the semester. But I do miss some part of being in college. Like my financial aid checks, walking through the campus, hanging out with friends and my favorite professors. I don't like the insecurity that being out of college creates. What I mean is that when I was still in school I knew that once the semester ended I signed up for the next and the next. It was a cycle that I was familiar and comfortable with. But Now what? I'm still at my part time job pretty much waiting for a "CAREER" to call me or email me. It's frustrating at times when I don't know what to expect. I feel that I am beyond qualified for many places I just wish they'd give me a chance. I know the job market is tough right now but I gotta keep optimistic and keep my head high. I'm heavily considering going back to grad school at least till the job market cools off. Hopefully things get easier and I wonder,..... are others going through the same thing I am even though i started job searching months before I graduated..? interesting how the real world can be. I've been on my own for 2 years now yet NOW I feel like I'm in the real world.
