I have just graduated from college this morning. BS in biology with a chemistry minor. Certificate in wildlife ecology in management, graduated Cum Laude with a 3.8 GPA. Internships, honors, extra curriculars. etc. etc.
And yet I have no job prospects...
I'm terrified of the future and becoming increasingly stressed. I always thought my graduation day would be happy and momentous...It wasn't.
Congratulations! It'll get better. You'll be grossly underpaid for a while, but it'll pay off. Welcome to the world, fellow ecology geek!
And try not to take my whining about job stuff to heart-- you were much smarter than I and did not go to grad school yet
well a child might be where I do not agree with and I have to go now, they are messing with me when they know I do not have a phone to answer them, lol. I am sure I will take care of this even without glasses.
ugh I have one more day left at the school. I got yelled at today for "my attitude" I'm sorry that I get frusterated and irritable this time a year, I had a lot of bad things happen around this time of year and I never got over it. no matter how hard I try to be happy the more frusterated I get. I'm getting help with it and its a work in progress. so Tuesday I was really frusterated with myself because my teddy bear heads weren't coming out right and they gave me four hair cuts. I felt really overwhelmed and I got really frusterated. so my "boss" (she's my bosses wife) took that as me not being happy about being at the school. which, btw, I'm not because I have to listen to yelling all day. then today, my first dog was being a brat for drying and I told her to knock it off and my "boss" comes in and says you need to relax and stop yanking dogs. I don't treat the dogs any different than I did when I was in school. so she comes up to me and sternly tells me that I need to "change my attitude" and that she's seen enough of me "yanking" dogs and if that's allowed at my normal place of work then "heads are going to roll" which it's not. I usually keep my mouth shut when I'm there to avoid getting yelled at md now when I do that I get yelled at, but I'm afraid to talk because I don't want to get yelled at. I can hardly wait to go back to my normal place of work and get a talking to by my boss. I never want to go over to the school again she makes me feel so uncomfortable that apparently I come off as "stand offish"
