I am totally frustated. I am getting a degree in political science, and I don’t much know that I want to know anything more about. As a matter of fact, I even stopped reading the paper several weeks ago. Now, I am just going through the motions, see if I can get out of here soon enough. Though, soon enough may have been LONG AGO!

Anyway, so now, I am starting to think about what I want to do; and honestly writing, I just want to do something that doesn’t make me feel like I have to do it. You know, something I really enjoy doing. So, I have been looking into Web Design and Applications Development. I’ve always liked that, and I don’t think that I’d mind doing that for a while. But I also want to go back to school eventually, because I’d like to teach, college that is. But I can’t see myself doing that again for a while. Anyhow, I’ve wanted to write for a long time, but to be honest I’m not too confident on that plain, probably because my papers in college haven’t done as well as I’d like – though I’ve gotten some poems published.

I am getting really anxious the closer graduation comes. I have friends who’ve been out of college for a year and still don’t have a good job; and some that don’t have a job at all. I know the economy really sucks right now, but we spent over $160K getting this education and the least it should do for us is get us a job paying $25k a year. Let’s face it, that’s just fair. In the meantime, I know people who didn’t even spend $5k in their education, and because they graduated 3 years ago, now make $35K per year. NOT RIGHT! Plus, it’s also not the cost by the quality, and it doesn’t get much better than this!

Anyhow, I just wish that I can find something that doesn’t leave me stuck in Nowhere, USA forever; and something that doesn’t leave me commuting between office and desk day in and day out for the rest of my days, with nothing to do in the weekends because I have no friends around where I live. THAT would just suck!
