So yes, I am still job searching. It’s becoming even more frustrating, which isn’t so much unbelievable as just sad. As a continuation, I’m going to highlight some spectacular gifs from the comments of the last column.

Good luck with your job search!! I’m about to head out into these waters soon as well because I currently hate one of my part time jobs. I have another part time job but I’d need a full-time job or to replace a part time job in order to stay afloat until I’m done with school. Here’s to hoping that we both land something soon!
