As I finish up graduate school and prepare to graduate in a few days, I can’t help but reflect back on the past few years, and on my current job hunt. Having been unemployed, or underemployed, for the last 5 years, I am really excited to find a job in my new field. However, I am also a certified elementary school teacher, and along with my bachelor’s degree, yet I still can’t get hired.
I wonder if our society has reached the point of no return, as seen by all the garbage our country promotes on TV, especially reality shows. I can’t help but think that I have wasted my money (I have the student loans to prove it) getting a Master’s degree, when there are white trash shows, like Honey Boo Boo, portraying the wrong message. How can these white trash people be making more money than me? I guess I actually have morals, and think higher of myself than they do.
What is wrong with our society that hard working, highly educated citizens are unable to find work, yet the obscure and uneducated are paid to act stupid on TV? I just hope that our society can bounce back and regain the morals it once had. I’m done with my rant, and will continue my job hunt 🙂
