day 20-I am struggling! Ahhh!

day 20 in blogging everyday in may is about struggling. rofl. well, when i look at the world in general, i wonder am i really struggling? i have food, shelter, water, in a safe nation etc, so what is there really for me/us to struggle about. think about that for a minute or two.(insert jeopardy song here). ok, so now here are my struggles...

1. i am struggling to find a job that is equal to my education level. i do not think this is too much to ask. i have a masters and i am making less than $30,000 a year. yes, it is a job, i am pleased with it, but would love to work in my field and have a chance to move. perhaps one day soon. are others feeling this too? you have a degree or are working towards a degree and well, nothing the job market for you over $10 an hour unless you are a doctor? any tips, advice, where to look, which job search engines are really best? thanks for helping me out with this "struggle".

2. i am struggling with my shoes right now. yes, my shoes. if i did not know it was monday, i do now! my shoes, both the right and left foot, just broke these were the shoes I got while we were stationed in Sicily too! boo, so sad. had to go get a new pair. this is where clearly this is a first world problem. #firstworldproblems. 

ok, so what are your struggles?

  1. I keep trying to tell myself I have food and water I'm good, but my brain does not agree ...I feel ya:)

    1. Shana Jane, thank you for your comment. I am happy someone else feels my pain. Yes, my head is not catching up at all. What did you get your degree in?

  2. Bahaha at your first world problem! Sorry though!
    I know what you mean about the education vs job situation. I know so many people working towards their masters, and racking up debt, to then not be able to find a job. I'm so so thankful that my husband is in the military.

    1. yes, the military sure has its benefits. it is harder to get folks in now, but those that are in already are good to go. so glad for your husbands service and glad you all are comfy too!
