Hi, Blog! Let's get reaquainted.
There seems to be, however, a light at the end of the tunnel. You see, I've been internally conflicted with many emotions lately. I want a career and a job that I truly enjoy (I know it's possible -- and if not, what's the point?!). I have been working hard towards a higher goal that is now unattainable at my current workplace.
We can blame the politicians or the debt, but one thing has been made very clear to me: I'm in a rut -- and unless the budget allows, I'm not moving up financially or getting a title bump. So, that leaves me with the agonizing thought -- "What is the point?! (Should I try harder?) What are my goals? (Excel in my career) How can I reach those goals? (No answer on this one!)
I never paid attention to the economy when I was in college. My head was stuck either firmly in the clouds or in my textbook as I rushed though my academic career. I demand more, though. It can't really be this bad for much longer... Something's gotta give!
