New problems.

New year has brought with it new hopes but also new problems. I spent the time between my college graduation, December 14th, and the end of last year working full time at my part time job. Because of this I was unable to follow up with the interviews I have had and apply for new jobs. Now things have slowed down and I am working part time at my part time job and full time as a stay-at-home dad to my one year old daughter. The latter is a great gig, I get to set my own hours and take naps, but it doesn't bring home the bacon or fry it. So I can't help feeling that I am letting my family down.

After I got my Bachelors, I spent two months applying for employment and finally got a part time job at U-Haul because the manager confused me with a guy who was supposed to start that day. One thing lead to another and I found myself manning a fort in the middle of a local mall and thinking that I don't wish to spend the rest of my life this way. So I dusted off my study skills and got myself into a graduate program from which I now hold a Masters degree. But now I am back to where I was years ago, aimlessly wandering around in a tunnel looking for a light. It very hard for me to remain hopeful that something will come along and that the faith the head of my department showed in my abilities will bare fruit.

Hang in there Stan. Opportunities are out there, they just like to hide from us. Something will crop up for you. Just keep at it!
