I have applied for more than ten jobs, and I am to get an interview on Monday at 1 p.m. I am rather excited! I have also made many great sales in Mary Kay since I have graduated. I signed up for a Propay account today, and I have spread out my payment for Propay so that it would not be too daunting. I decided to pay $13.91 for the next three months for my Propay account this year instead of paying $39.95 for a month. I did not want to pay it all in one big swoop, considering that I cannot afford to do so anyhow. In fact, I can barely afford anything until I pay my ridiculous student loans. Speaking of, I need to contact my financial aid office at my school to make my payments as small as possible. I will be able to add more to my payment as time passes. In fact, I plan to have my student loans paid in five years because I cannot stand being in debt to anyone. I still owe my mother $1,000 for my apartment that I lived in last school year. I am sure that I will have that paid off in due time, though, considering how successful my Mary Kay business has been and how quickly people at job sites are responding to me. I love my Bachelor’s Degree. I can get pretty much any job I would like around my area until I go to graduate school. Speaking of, I am still working on applying to graduate schools. Applying for graduate schools, however, has not been on the top of my list of things to do lately because I have a business to run, and I need to make money before I go back to school. Besides, I need a break from academia. I was struggling last year to keep my sanity and my grades above an B+. I am very surprised that I kept a cum laude with how lazy I was last year. Senioritis definitely removed any form of sanity that I had left after the depressing end to my Junior year; I would rather never discuss that incident again, even if the hole in my soul that resulted from my depressing end of Junior year eventually became filled. I am much happier now that I graduated college, am making money, and am having very much luck applying to jobs and getting possible interviews. I am so glad that I am able to get a job.
