Journal Entry: Fri Aug 8, 2014, 6:32 PM
So a lot is going on right now with me. I'm working 3 days a week in a factory (good money but it has nothing to do with my professional skills), and volunteering at a local school on Tu/Th. I like the latter more, but it's not for pay. I'm estimating my cost of living expenses and trying to see if it's enough to live on my own. I loved living on campus during college in my small dorm room so a small apartment is fine by me. No kids, no wife, so I don't really need a lot of room. So basically a lot less time for anything online beside my phone games that I play once in a while. I never really made it as a "3d modeler" so I guess that's something I have to just see as a hobby. I'm not even an entry-level guy so yeah. At this point I just want to make money. My factory job has no real room for "climbing the ladder" so I'm going to work there for a while still looking for bigger and better things. I really like my volunteer opportunity and if things go well there I will be an assistant to a teacher when the semester starts and that's interesting to me. I like teaching and helping people but I never studied that in college. If I could go back in time I would probably get a degree in Business Administration, because this "Graphic Design" Major is useless in the current economy. Hopefully things will get better soon and I can put my skills to work, but if not, the only thing that is really getting me "through the door" is my college degree. Showing that I stuck with something for 4 years, determination and all that. I'm hoping my volunteering will also help my resume.

I've filled out more applications for more things than I ever thought I would. Things that have nothing to do with my college degree of Fine Art, but there's nothing really that I qualify for (I need more experience but I can't get experience without a job, so go figure.). I've had interviews for being a Financial planner, laborer, selling phone data plans, life insurance salesman, many other things. I am registered on 27 different job search sites and I get daily emails on my phone for jobs they think I'd be a good fit for. I sometimes get calls on my phone because I have put my resume on so many websites looking for work.

I'm also not dating. I get my hopes up far too soon on things before I even know what they're really about. I get distracted with too much of social life to be honest. I've online dated to death and there is a very specific type of girl I continually attract and it's not who I am. I just keep reeling in the same fish and I'm done with that fishin' hole if you know what I mean. Plus there is ton of catfishing online and that's not fun.
