I don’t know about you, but graduation is about 3 months away for me. There really is no better way to describe how job hunting has been like than with gifs, so here goes:
I realized I’m graduating. soon.
And then I realized I have to look for jobs but… even 3 months is still “too early”
So having to get started but not feeling like it was something like this.
At first I said
So I search and click and type
and network til
After awhile, what I wanted and where I wanted it, changed. Even the things I thought were going to be great, turned out not to be all that I imagined.
People around me have gotten job offers or have started to lose hope themselves, spreading that negativity to me
but I keep telling myself
And other people (my mom) tell me
But after awhile you just feel like
And at times I just want to say:
or do this
But besides it being completely unproductive….
it’s just not attractive. Let’s be honest.
So it’s time to WAKE UP
I’m going to step outside,
clear my head
and remind myself of who I am.
And where I wanna be.
Gotta tune out the noise and distractions and fight for my future.
I (and You) am/are too young, too smart and too beautiful to be sad or to give up so easily.
And even though it feels like this sometimes
and I wonder:
I’ll keep my eyes, ears and mind open.
Cause feeling like this after an interview…
or like this after all that correspondence (finally)
Will all be worth it in the end .
when I’m eating macarons to celebrate. 🙂
and when I’m at a place I want to be.
Just think… I won’t have to say I’m a student anymore
and catching the eye of attractive men in suits will be within reach 😉
Becoming that attractive, well dressed person in the office always kicking ass (a la SUITS)
and having that moment where you make friends with the people you work with, making that job 10x better
is all within the realm of possibility.
Besides, don’t I owe it to myself to become the best version of Me, in a city I love?
The least I can do is never stop trying.
I just know this will be waiting for me.
and when that happens, I can sit pretty
knowing I worked hard to get where to where I am and that I didn’t give up.
So even though it might suck right now…. I’ll prepare…
and try not to forget..
“Know what you deserve and be patient. Don’t ever settle.”
“Don’t settle for less than you want, go grab the life you dream about, tomorrow may be too late.”
