#61: HELP! This 9 to 5 Life is Not for Me!
First I would like to begin this blog post by saying that everyday I thank God for blessing with employment so that I can keep a roof over my head and food on the table. The last thing I need are comments saying that I'm ungrateful and how there are so many people in America that don't have a job.
My first thought to statements of that sort are always "What does that have to do with me?" I don't mean to be rude but I never understood why wanting more or better in life is seen as being ungrateful. It's called having goals people!
I was offered an online math tutor position today but because of the variance in scheduling, pay and hours, I will pass on the offer.
Such a bittersweet moment. To be one step closer to living your life on your own terms, but then having to be realistic about things can be frustrating at the same time. One my goals on my vision board is to work from home in 2015. I'm tired of the commute to work, the office politics and being in a position where I have no passion for what my job title entails. I spend 37.5 hours a week watching the clock, praying for the speedy arrival of five o'clock.
No one, but many of us do, should have to live like this. Whoever told me that if I go to college I could be anything I want to be should be bitch slapped. Twice. The only thing my college degrees has done for me is scream to employers "DON'T TRY ME WITH THAT MINIMUM WAGE BS!"
And trust me when I say I've applied countless times for what I thought would be a "dream job." But of course I'm given the lack of experience speech. Dear sir or madam, please tell me where I can get this experience you speak of while making AT LEAST 40K a year so that I can survive? Internships were cute at 20 but I'm 28 now and I have bills. Lots of bills.
I have to create my own dream job and become my own boss. I am now convinced that entrepreneurship is my only way out.
Wait, did I just create a new blog series or nah? Awwwwww snap. Stay tuned folks. We are about to embark on a new journey....
