In 2011, I was just a year away from graduating college. I realized that I would soon hit the “real world” and need to start thinking about the inevitable. You know what that means: finding a job that deals with my degree, moving out on my own, but most especially, paying off my college loans and the additional debt that I had acquired trying to survive through my six year, two bachelor degree journey. I figured that the best way to do that was to hold myself accountable by making a blog about my journey of getting out of debt. I created Rainy Day Saving, but the last year of college is a hectic one and it wasn’t until after I had graduated that I’d find the time.
Throughout 2012 I found it to be a bit of a roller coaster. Student teaching, graduation, interviews and failed attempts of finding a job that incorporated my two degrees…. it was becoming frustrating. Add the fact that the job I was at was sold to new corporation and merged, or the three transfers that correlated with that because of store policies, or perhaps even when I was forced to quit my job meant I was a wreck.
With all that, I almost wish I was back in college studying for finals!
Unemployed since, I’ve been chronicling my struggle of finding ways to make money while I look for a job, any job so that I can continue to pay my bills. I’ve been hunting for those raindrops and the downpour for when things are going to start flooding in my direction. After all, it only takes one extra raindrop to burst a dam right?
Good news though, I’ve been hired and I feel things are going to get awesome here soon.
So grab your umbrellas, and let’s play in the rain!
