Nov. 29, 2013: I find myself with very little motivation for school and/or trying to find a good career. I worked a job over the summer that was excruciatingly boring and by the end of the summer I couldn’t stand it anymore. They liked my work and wanted me to contract with them afterwards, but I have no interest in that anymore. By now I was supposed to hear back from the company about the contract job and I wondered why it’s been so long, then realized they didn’t have my new phone number. I’m not going to give it to them either (the job was too far away anyways). The job made me lose interest in my degree though, and that scares me. Now what do I do? I’m going to finish this year, graduate, and find another drafting/design job—hoping that I just worked for the wrong company and it isn’t all as tedious. If I still don’t like the field however, I don’t know what will happen.
I signed up for a bartending class in January, which I’m excited about. I hope I enjoy it as much as I think I will; maybe I can get really good and make a career out of it. I could work for a catering company or a fancy restaurant where I’ll get tipped a bunch. I didn’t sign up for the class to find a job though. It was something I wanted to do for myself, so I can learn how to mix drinks for friends, family, and myself in a little over a year.
