The class of 2012 is about to get a gigantic wake-up call: In the last year, college graduates were more likely to be employed as servers, bartenders, and food-service helpers than as engineers, physicists, chemists, and mathematicians combined. Only three of the 30 occupations with the largest projected number of openings by 2020 will require a college degree—teachers, college professors, and accountants.
Today, new numbers find that half of college grads under 25 are out of work.

I feel like it’s been a while. my life is nothing but school :-/
2 frustrations of late: I’m moving in with a friend for the coming school year. Only problem? She has a cat. This eliminates like 98% of all decent housing options. We also have a huge difference in location preferences. She drives everywhere on campus. I like walking! The less I have to touch my car the better. I can’t wait to get rid of that thing! These are small quibbles, but it still makes everything that much harder, amiright? I found a TERRIFIC place to live (it even has exercise eqmt in the basement!) but of course, no cats allowed. arg.
Also just freaking out about all this stuff I have to do before I leave for Israel on the 12th of May! (YAY!) I haven’t been on a plane in 10 yrs and don’t know what to do and I’m pretty sure security is going to arrest me becasue I’ll try getting my shampoo on the plane in unapproved quantities/containers.
But now I need to finish the 100 things I have due this week. Toodles.
These words just came out of my roommate’s mouth.
explanation: I was in the kitchen while they were watching TV. He didn’t notice me and apparently I spooked him. I don’t know why he had to stick the “Jew” in there?
He also likes to point out that I’m “really Jewish” when I say things are too expensive or that I can’t afford to do things. It’s not because I’m Jewish…it’s because I’m fucking poor. Am I just being sensitive?

So these last two weeks have ruled. They’ve been amazing. I don’t know how life could get better.
Oh wait…reverse that. The last two weeks have SUCKED BALLS. Literally (not literally), the worst two weeks in memory. Everything that can go wrong has. It’s been a waterfall of awful (first-world) shit just raining down upon me, threatening to drown me in its shittiness.
Let me elaborate: two weeks ago: drove 40 miles to geneva, only to forget my costco gift card (which allows me to get groceries that they just don’t carry in dekalb), then I did really bad on some homework, then I fucked up my knee when I slipped on ice, then I fell down the stairs and got a big ‘ole bruise, then other shitty stuff, then I had the largest blemish of my life appear on my face, right in my dimple, so it hurt like hell whenever I smiled, then my wallet was stolen out of my gym locker (apex of the shitfest that has become my life), then I got a C on a memo assignment (my prof doesn’t do grade inflation; apparently my report “had everything requested, but didn’t dazzle”. fuck that) and then…
This afternoon I came back from class in the middle of the day to shower for my meeting later on today. No one was home so I didn’t lock the door (I almost never lock bathroom doors, I have my own 1/2 bath here, so I really only ever use the shared bathrooms to shower, and people know not to come in). Then I had the brilliant idea to open the window, b/c it was gorgeous out and I thought it’d help the fan.
Well apparently, when you have an unlocked door and an open window the cross winds can sometimes BLOW THE FUCKING DOOR OPEN SO THAT YOUR MALE ROOMMATE CAN SEE YOUR REFLECTION IN THE BATHROOM MIRROR ON HIS WAY TO HIS ROOM AND YOU HAVE SOAP IN YOUR EYES SO YOU DON’T NOTICE THE DOOR IS OPEN FOR LIKE 5 MINUTES AND WHEN YOU DO IT’S TOO LATE. HE’S SEEN EVERYTHING.
I’ve been away at class all day and just ran into my roommate for the first time since…the incident. And oh my dear god the next 8 weeks cannot pass by fast enough.
I don’t know why, but I think this is the ugliest People Magazine cover (Is it the colors?). Also, become a kidnapping victim and get your wedding on the cover or People?? This world: not my problem. Her husband looks like he’s still in high school!
This makes me sad. The smile looks so forced. I still think of her as so young, it’s weird that she is married.
