My life since graduation

-Nine months of unemployment
-Eight months working retail
-One month working data entry (for wages only slightly better than the retail job)

And now I'm right back where I started: Unemployed. I know I've made my share of mistakes, but I don't think I deserve a life of continuous misery.

Writer's Block: 9/11

Where were you?


School. I was in Eighth Grade. I walked into English and Mr. Mahaffey was sitting at his desk, watching the news. He said, "Somebody blew up the World Trade Center again." We spent the rest of the day watching coverage of the attack in all my classes. Two months later, when I went to NYC with my family, there was still smoke coming from the buildings.

I can't believe it's been ten years. My heart goes out to everyone who lost someone on 9/11/01.

So, apparently, I'm not supposed to be hurt when people say hurtful things to me. I'm supposed to just say, "Yeah, whatever" and move on. Thanks for the advice, Mom, but that's not how I operate. I don't see why I should have to passively take abuse. Oh, and thanks for trivializing my feelings by telling me how much worse you have it. It's nice to know you care so much.
