Oh, I hear ya about not wanting to be an adult some days!  Be thankful you have an in for a job somewhere…so many people leaving college and even those that have a lot of job experience (like my FH) aren’t so lucky.  I know it’s not what you want but it seems like everyone is making mucho sacrifices these days and taking what they can get in the job market.  Thankfully it doesn’t have to be your “forever job.”  Wedding planning is a great distraction as long as we aren’t thinking about paying for it! 🙂

I’ve been out in the real world for less than a year, and I must agree. I miss being a kid. 


@MissNewYork – just out of curiosity, what kinds of things “must” get done so early out? I would think if you are so busy, you could put off planning for a few months?

Oh I hear you on the naps, snacks and playtime! Hahaha…but, don’t be discouraged about the job situation. The good thing is, you WILL have a job come graduation.

I was the first graduating class after 9/11, and believe me, jobs were scarce! I got a job at the place I had been working PT, and I totally didn’t want that job…it wasn’t anything I wanted to do at all, but it was the only thing I got after graduation. Then, in October, they ended up laying off our entire sales force and half the people I worked with. It was a total wakeup call that I was super lucky to have the job.

The layoff got my butt in full gear for job hunting again, and some random recruiter found my resume on monster.com. I ended up interviewing and getting the position, and now I’ve been with the company for 7 years. To say that I love my job is stretching it just a little, but it’s in my field, and it’s fabulous experience. Things may come along when you’re least expecting it, so keep on applying and keep on trudging. Even when you start the job you don’t want in June, don’t let it stop you from looking for something else! At least you can look for a job while you’re getting paid really well!

Yeah, it’s overwhelming sometimes.  I remember being little and telling my mother that I couldn’t WAIT till I was big and I could do what I wanted.  She would always tell me that adults don’t always get to do what they wanted.

I didn’t believe her then, but boy did I find out!  

I’m so sorry that you might take a job that you’ll dislike.  Sometimes we have to do things to get by, but if it will really make your heart hurt to do it, reconsider.  You don’t want to be miserable all day on top of all of the stress you feel!

I hope you find what’s right for you.  I’m still struggling with being an adult too, and I graduated in 2008!  It’s definitely tough and many times frustrating as hell.  I think it’ll take some more getting used to 😉

I am a very young mom and the other day I started wondering when did I become the person exhausted by their children instead of being the exhausting child. Where did all that energy go? My kids could keep going forever, I am the one who truely needs nap time!

I know how you feel.  Maybe you could just take the other job just for the experience and then in a few months to a year when more jobs are available you have that job underneath you to help you get something that you really want.  I am trying to find a new job now, it’s taking a lot longer than I thought it would sadly.
