Misadventures in Unemployment

So it's been approximately forever since I've posted, but I was busy for while, and then I was home and unemployed and couldn't bring myself to blog about how pathetic it feels to watch Netflix all day.

Anyway, post-thesis to my birthday was pretty awesome. There was Beach Week, Graduation, a cruise, The Boy's Brother's Wedding (I shall call them "The Golden Boy" and "Little Miss Perfect", because, well, they are. You'd have to meet them. Also, those names may seem snarky, but really it's just a statement of fact. Really.), a trip home, and then back to current city to pack up The Boy because he gave up his apartment and came to crash with me. We're now in his hometown, having gone up to DC for the Fourth again. This year was a little lower-key, but we still had a great time. I played the best game of cornhole of my life, but The Boy's college roommate, who was my opponent, kept matching me and therefore I wasn't actually scoring points. So tragic.

Anyway, I've been applying to jobs and not hearing anything, and it's really upsetting. If it doesn't turn around soon, I worry that I may become full-on depressed, y'all. We leave for our new adventure in like 22 days.

In the meantime, I have a meeting with a friend of The Boy's family who is a career consultant, and then I will be heading back to my apartment to pack and clean and get ready for the move. Oy.
