Everyone has to work for a living. Even in Socialist Workers’ Utopian Paradise European Union. Even Stalinist Russia. It sounds like you’re psyching yourself out - anxiety over interviews or over having to work.
I have no problem with working for a living. I’m just frustrated with being young and inexperienced, with not knowing what I want to accomplish, like the rest of the twenty-somethings.
But I’m comfortable assigning these feelings to anxiety right now. I feel like anxiety is weighing me down right now, and I want to scream.
You’ve got an interview, that’s a good thing. Just relax and let life take you places. Opportunities appear in strange places. Take them as they come.
I’m glad you said this. I think I needed to hear it.
Alice gave me some good-natured nudging about getting my resume out to more places and making sure to get my foot in the door, and I went on Craigslist and bookmarked some listings, but overall I’m just…
fatigued by the whole prospect. I know I can’t afford to stay unemployed for long, but I feel really personally unstable right now, and it’s just not what I needed to hear.
I just feel really stressed out and it’s not even good stress.
I try really hard not to be a resentful person, and I’m not, except that there’s this one person who committed actions I cannot forgive.
And it has been pissing me off for most of the day that this person is petty enough to try to be in any way relevant to my life, a year and a half after breaking ties.
Also, and this has nothing to do with the first point, I am frustrated by the fact that I want a job, not a career, and I want money to continue existing, not a soul-sucking drudgery that makes me believe that the alternative is viable.
In other words, The Great Job Hunt of 2014 is underway and I’m already depressed. Maybe tomorrow will be better.
Maybe my interview on Wednesday will go well.
So you all love the “Girls/Girls/Boys” video, but who doesn’t? Well here’s the director’s cut, can you spot the difference? Also this is the new single, so let’s blow it the fuck up.
To celebrate the release of the new video, we teamed up with the Human Rights Campaign to sell two different Girls/Girls/Boys inspired shirts. 100% of the proceeds will go towards the HRC, and it will only be available for a limited time! Get them here.
One more thing! If you Shazam the song, you can enter to win the Fender® 2014 MLB All-Star Game Standard Stratocaster® Guitar used during the MLB All Star weekend. Did we mention it’s signed? Because it is.
