- Wedding: June 2014
I graduated with a degree in Cinema & Television almost two years ago, and spent a year and a half underemployed as an extra, which has a coule of perks but is a shitty job. A couple of months ago I finally quit, and this week I got my first full-time job! It’s such a relief, not having a good job was starting to make me feel really depressed. I’m now the nanny for a sweet, hyperactive 4-year-old boy with issues with impulse control. It’s a challenge, but his parents and behavioral therapist are great. It’s not my chosen field, but I had a part-time job working with kids for 6 years, and I think this will be more rewarding. I’m just so happy I have a good job now, and I’ll focus on my career again after my wedding next month 🙂
I just needed to write this out, and if anyone else is struggling with unemployment, please know that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel! It might take a change in direction, but if you apply yourself, the right opportunity will find you. And if you like working with kids, I highly recommend care.com. Anyways, Happy Friday! I’m sending good vibes into the universe.
