I started this blog because, as my sister said, I was hitting the point of total boredom during a long bout of unemployment.
I followed the success prescription given to most youth in this country today:
Step 1: Do awesome in high school.
Step 2: Go to a good college and do awesome there too.
Step 3: Get your master’s degree in something.
Step 4: Easy ticket to a job ……… urrr………. wait
Step 4 wasn’t so easy to accomplish and it wasn’t for lack of trying. After graduating I wrote what seemed like a bagillion cover letters and multiple versions of my resume too.
ANYWAY — I wanted to write about what this process (being unemployed) meant for me as a foodie, fashionista, feminist, musician, soon-to-be wife, and public health professional.
