Happy, happy, happy Thanksgiving, TGFErs! I have so much to be thankful for this year, it’s almost hard to comprehend. My last few posts have focused mostly on what struggles I’ve been dealing with, as I fight to find a job in this difficult market and question my journey, so I’m thankful this holiday has arrived just in time for me to think of all I have to be thankful for instead.
I had always pictured that I was going to graduate university, and I was going to have a job lined up, that I would be sick of school and ready and eager to begin my career. The latter became true, but reality hit hard after graduation. Even myself, with all the privilege and connections in the world, was going to struggle. Even with my international experience and numerous internships…I would move home and work part-time, and suddenly, that bursting passport was going to take a rest. After months at home, I took some time off to venture down to LA for Halloween.
