So I graduated 3-4 months ago and I currently have a part-time job as a teacher assistant, which I’ve been doing for over a year now. It doesn’t pay well (i.e. for me to be able to move out and stuff, and actually have some sort of life), it can be frustrating and the commute is a real pain.
The thing is… I just don’t have any kind of motivation to look for something else. I’m filled with dread before even looking for jobs. Everything I read about employment these days is so incredibly pessimistic, I always end up thinking ‘what’s the point’?
I guess it doesn’t help that I still don’t have a clue what I want to do career-wise, but I guess this is normal when you’re in your 20s? (with an English degree).
I feel like I’m supposed to be looking for ‘the perfect job’ or something, and that I’ve somehow messed things up by not figuring this out earlier. Is there anyway to overcome this feeling, and just fucking do it?
Do you have any stories about work after graduation?
