On the plus side, I really think my adviser was wrong in telling me that I'd have another three semesters left. I've gone over and over and over my transcripts repeatedly, doing the math, adding up my credits. And I'm pretty sure that I only have TWO semesters left!!! Keeping my fingers crossed, because I want to graduate sooner rather than later. If I'm right, that's only a year left of school! It's hard to believe I've made it this far already.
I will try to get around to visiting everybody later today. If not today, then later in the week for sure. I've really missed everyone so much!
*******Took this from here.
1. When did you have the weakest self-confidence ever?
It was after I got fired from a job that I hated with every fiber of my soul. I applied and applied and applied for jobs and just wasn't having any luck. I rarely heard back from any of the employers, although I did some interviews that lead nowhere. I remember going to the Dept. of Labor and having a meeting with them to see what I was doing wrong. They reviewed my cover letters and resume, and we did mock interviews. Overall, it wasn't super helpful and they didn't have much advice to offer in regards to my resume.
Over a year later, I was still unemployed and extremely depressed. It did not help to have my mom and various friends comment about it. My mom told me that I needed to stop only applying for my dream job and start applying for others as well. If she only knew how many jobs I applied for and did not really want! Then there was the friend who said, "I can't believe you still don't have a job yet. What's wrong with you?" Yeah, that's a real confidence booster right there! There were many other comments as well...
What finally pulled me out of it was going to school. I finally had a reason to wake up in the morning and to go out and see people every day. I really feel like school is where I'm supposed to be right now.
2. Among the people you know, who would you choose to be able to read all your thoughts?
3. How old were you when you realized that other people's families live totally differently from yours?
I don't really know. My father was in the military, and we moved around frequently. I went to a new school almost every year up until high school. It felt weird to me when I finally did realize that other families did not move every few years, and that manly of my friends had never even been out of the state they were born in.
4. Show and tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.
These past two weeks have been extremely stressful with a lot going on. Now that they're over with and I can actually relax, I've been doing a lot of this! The only real difference is that my chi's are curled up next to me.
