Life Freakout
I would love to vent to someone. I would love to vent somewhere. I feel like I have to put on a face, pretend to have some kind of reputation when I. am. nothing. So what I finished college?! I don't have a leg up on anyone! I don't have skill. None of my teachers OR peers ever saw me as someone they'd ever recommend. I haven't been special-- my skills aren't special. How the ******** am I supposed to make a living off of "my talents" when I don't have anything marketable?! I HAVEN'T BUDGED since I graduated from high school! I am no further in life! I am NOWHERE. Who wants to hire me?! No one. Especially at this time, this economic struggle, this state. Things are ********, and those of us who just don't have a sparkle are absolutely useless! The most productive things I can do at this point are a) to keep my room clean, b) apply to jobs, c) try to keep up my drawing or other skills, and d) don't get discouraged.

Well guess what? I'M REALLY DAMN DISCOURAGED!! There are kids on HERE that have more talent than I've got. I know no one who sees a lot of potential in me to the point where they have faith that I'll succeed. I'm a loser, man! I am going NOWHERE!

    Haven't I, and don't I, feel the same ways sometimes? @_@ (Kids these days know the strangest things... very smart. @_@ )
    At least you've gotten to college. You have that, which is more than a lot of people right now. @_@ (particularly me, lol. XD I'm trying to get into a community college right now, sadly. T__T; )

    As for skills, if you don't have anything marketable... from this, there's an implication that you have at least persistance. Are you doing your follow-up calls on all of your applications? Bugging the hell out of them, saying, "have you looked at my application? Have you looked at my application? What did you think of it? H ave you looked at it? Am I being considered?" Until they either tell you "No, you're not hired" or "Come in for an interview!"

    Just one random piece of advice: never go to an interview for Vector marketing. It will only end in tears and confusion as well as a great deal of anger. @_@;
