Don't feel too bad, no doubt they see you're studying mathematics at undergraduate level and deem you overqualified.

I just need money for ramen and bus tickets, I don't plan on outmoding them or anything. Angry

I mean, what kind of bullshit is that? You always here conservatives talk about "well if you need money just apply to this dead end job" and then if you are educated you can't anything?"

I guess I am just going to have to send up like 15 fucking applications or something *sigh*

I had the hardest time trying to find a job. Like places would either never respond or I would get an interview but they would ultimately not hire me. Aside from working at my older sister's job as an intern, I didn't get a real job until this past month over at Wendy's, and they wanted me to come in for orientation after the interview (which I thought I wouldn't get hired after tbh). For the longest time, I felt like I was underqualified, but I might have just been overqualified because of certain things

I find that you want to apply a bunch to your first few jobs and once you have the experience even if its for a small amount of time that you work there, you can use small tasks and qualities about your past jobs to get into places you want to go into.

For example, I got my early jobs managing and supervising for small businesses so now it's easier to get into jobs just using the responsibility and availability needed from those positions.

It's more about seeming trustworthy on paper because people might already know whether they will hire you from your application when it comes to small jobs, interviews aren't super important past portraying confidence


~And other faggotry~

The job I appiled to last week is one was one I applied to about four months ago. They called me and said I was their choice but then someone else in the very next interview sniped the position. She then quits out of nowhere so not only did she steal my job, she didn't even stay there very long and I had to get a job in retail just to pay bills ugh.

Howdy mates. Yeah, life's a bitch.

Quote:@ Rayne, seems like you extended to us as your way of therapy. Nothing wrong with complaining. You know what you need to do. You've lost your drive because you feel that it's eventually pointless, that, or there is too much against you to put in much effort. Kinda of a defeatist mood. Anyway, I believe in you and know that'll you make it.

Well, I'm still in the army after 10 years. It took me forever to get promoted from E4 (Specialist) to E5 (sergeant). Most people obtain it with in their first 5 years of enlistment. By now I should be E6 or E6 Promotable or even E7 (Staff Sergeant or Sergeant First Class). There are people who have been in the army less than I have and are "more successful" than me.
I'm being viewed by senior leadership, peers, and subordinates; having to explain my life to them sucks. So I'm now trying to go SOF (Special Operations Forces). Which is usually those soldiers who do kick ass shit that you never hear in the news.

Currently, I'm trying to go with Psychological Operations. I spoken with a recruiter and I've been told that what I need to do for my initial packet. Unfortunately I'll have to get 3 letters of recommendation from people in charge of me.
I'll do my best to explain my situation in terms you civilians can understand:

Enlisted personnel take care of the people. They are the ones who train soldiers and run things. Pretty much managers. Officers are the ones who make the policies and rules. Basically the CEOs. And then we have Warrant Officers. They are the technical advisors for the regular Officers.
I have a 1st Sergeant who is in charge of an entire unit. My company commander is our boss. They pretty much own us... think Mom and Pop with children.
Well, my base has a real world mission going on. This means people are relying on us to produce information and other products that will affect real things. People can be killed or not killed by the information provided. This mission requires an element. Soldiers are needed for the man power along with administration. Officers and etc.

Well, this element has soldiers who out rank my 1SG and Captain (CPT)/Commander that require soldiers (like myself and others). But those high ranking people answer to my 1SG and CPT. It's a strange situation that is common for military intelligence. Basically it's this analogy: I'm the youngest sibling, but I'm being forced to play with my older sibling. If I want to do something, I'll have to ask my parents, but I have to go through my older sibling before I can even see my parents.

In order for my packet to get approved, I need to see my boss who out ranks my 1SG about wanting to go PsyOps. He has to authorize me to request authorization from my 1SG...
the army gets stupid, fast, and can get unnecessarily dramatic quick. Most people can't deal with it, but since I've been in for 10 years-- I'm dead inside and can handle this type of shit.

What I'm worried is my clearance is coming up for review soon and if I'll be able to attend selection on my projected November class schedule.

Have you found out whether or not you've earned those credits, Ascaris?

Well I guess I've hit the point in life where I don't know what the actual fuck is going on any more, where I want to go from here, or why I am doing anything I'm currently doing.

Work wise, I'm making $12 an hour, basically being a manager/foreman of sorts at this campground. I'm pulling anywhere from 45-70 hours a week. But it's all seasonal worknow and will stop at the end of October. I might stick around for another season there unless I find better job during the winter months. But I have absolutely no idea where I'm going from here on a professional standpoint.

Other than work I don't do much, I hang out with an older gentleman. Around his late fifties. He works on my truck and teaches me some shit about fixing vehicles, and we go out to dinner and take turns paying for the meals. If were not doing either of that, were just shooting the shit or trying to find our next hustle to make some side money on. Kinda of an odd relationship but it works out between the to of us.

I don't have much of a love life what so ever. I hooked up with a chick when I was drunk and month or so ago, other than that there's just been this girl i met at work who's texts me constantly. Now at work I meet a lot of people and don't get a chance to process them while I'm meeting them and interacting with them through the weekend before they leave. So I've been talking to her, nothing really much just random bull shit. Supposedly she's 18, but recently Ive think she's lied to me about that and I've been kinda standoffish in texting, and ignoring her. So I'm just cutting my losses with and moving on. And recently I've just been feeling almost as if I don't really need a significant other at the moment or at all through life. All the ones I've had, and from what I've seen through friends have been drama and a waste of time. Not saying as if I'll never find a person to settle down with, but at least in my age and where I am now I don't think it's worth the the time to look for something serious like that.

Instead of having a relationship I have decided to buy a puppy, so I can have a companion and a friend. I have put a deposit down and met with a lady about Serbian husky puppies. They were born this past week I have seen them and picked one out and she will be ready to be taken home around the 31st of October. The dog is purebred and I will be receiving papers for her. I'm really excited about this.

Other than what I have mentioned it don't know how to look at life, or describe my feelings towards it. I know I'm not unhappy with it but at the same time I'm not fully happy either. Id just say I'm content with it at the moment. But just like anyone else i have my ups and my downs and just try to live on day at a time right now.
