Blame it on the Economy
The meeting with my Career Counselor was downright depressing. She asked me what I was doing in terms of networking. Umm, nothing? Collecting business cards? Making small talk with people that I probably won't see again? She told me that networking sucks, but I just have to suck it up and do it. Two hours later, wandering through Century City mall, I thought, alright, fine. I'll make an Excel sheet with every person I've ever met. FINE. Is that what it takes to be a winner? Do I even want to be a winner??
You know I never thought I'd be in this position. Everything in my life has been pretty linear. Now graduation is around the corner. Everyone is so excited for me and I am just like: 0_0 As much as I would like to blame it on the tough economy, I have to something instead of assuming that a job will turn up. It was good that I had that terrible meeting.
Although, I won't forget that she suggested I join South Asian Bar Association and then I pointed out that South Asia = Iran, Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, etc. She's Vietnamese too. I hate it when my own people make that mistake (which thankfully is not very often). Until my next emo post friends.
