Making Extra Dough

Again with the job hunt. This time I need a part-time job. With B starting school on Monday he will be starting part-time. Which means we will really have to cut back. I don’t know how we can cut back anymore than we already do but we will try.

If im going to have a part-time job its needs to be a fun job. I deal with so much crap at work I really don’t want to go to another job and deal with more crap. I also want a job where I already shop at so I can get a discount. I would love to work in a retail place like Crate and Barrel or Homegoods, rather than Macy’s or Ann Taylor. I like to furnish my home more than myself. B told me I should work the streets. He thinks I could get a lot of money…such a sweetheart :0)

When I get a second job I am really going to dedicate myself to making as much extra money as I can. That extra money is going to savings a paying down credit card. Except for the first check. I already said it was going to buy me and him new clothes. He desperately needs jeans and I need fall work clothes. I told him its my extra money and I get to spend it where I want. ha!  I’m going to drop off some applications around the area the next week. Wish me luck!

 

Its A Job Looking For A Job

Truer words have never been spoken…typed. So Much time and energy goes into looking for a job. Once you look for the right one it then takes forever to physically apply for the job. The online applications take forever to fill out then you have to make sure your resume and cover letter are correct and set up well for the job. Its hard work!

My issue I have is that I don’t know what I want to do with my life. I’ve had ADD since I was a kid. School was always something that was difficult for me. It was always easy for all of my friends but I really struggled with it. I was always very active and had something going on. Looking back I know why my parents were so supportive of me being playing soccer, running track, performing in the show choir and school plays. It helped me learn responsibility. I knew if I wanted to do something I had to finish my homework first.

Even with all of that I honestly never thought I would go to college. My parents knew how hard it can be to get a job without a college education, they told me I didn’t have to go to a 4 year University if I chose not to, but I did need to get my associates from the community college. I went to CC for a year before deciding that I wanted to get by bachelors. I chose a close by 4 year university. I decided to live on campus even though I could have still lived at home. Looking back at my student loans I shouldnt have lived on campus…but looking back at my college experiences im so happy I did.

I graduated college with a BS in Mass Communication. I interned at a PR firm and a film studio. I have graphic design, radio and film experience. (ps I really want to work on the design of my blog I just don’t have the equipment and time to do it right not…maybe sometime soon) I have all of this experience from college and have no idea what I want to do with it. To be honest I am completely scared to try something new. I stick with the safe jobs and am very afraid to step out of my comfort zone. I think it goes back to the insecurities I had when I was a child with ADD. I’m not afraid anymore to tell people I have it. I think I have accomplished a lot and I am very proud of myself. It just a lot of pressure to find something that you want to do for the rest of your life.

I have completely redone my resume. I have added key words and describe what I do perfectly. I feel really great about it and I hope some good things come my way soon! Wish me luck on my job hunt!
