Shows the thoughts and messy life of someone that finished college and can't find a job

I did It…and I’m still as confused as ever!

It’s been 11 months since I’ve graduated, and like when I started this blog, my life is still a chaotic mess. I do not have a full time job, and the real world has hit me with reality extremely hard in the past few months. 

I get more and more frustrated every day.

I apply to jobs every week, and I write cover letters for almost all of them trying to explain why I’m perfect for that job at that specific company. Now that I have a degree you would think it gets easier to find a job, but that is certainly not the case. 

I have exactly three weeks until I have millions of more graduates applying to these same jobs, like there wasn’t enough pressure as it is.

I would gladly take an internship within driving distance, since apparently I don’t have enough experience for any entry level job that I apply to. But no internship pays enough money for me to pay off my thousands of dollars in loans for the degree I’m not even using. Most internships don’t even pay anything. I’m stuck working 40 hours a week as a host at a restaurant. This is some great post-grad life, let me tell you.  

The worst part is, I’m one of millions of graduates that are in this position. if anyone reading this is in that position, how do you cope with the frustration? Because I’m struggling.
