Late. This post was supposed to be published on Saturday but I was thrust into a busy weekend. On Saturday I spent the day in Turlock, California to watch a few old teammates play a tennis match against Stanislaus State. It was so great being able to visit with old friends, some of whom I haven’t seen since May. I miss being on a tennis team, but I still stand by the decision I made to transfer to Fresno Pacific.
I wanted to go to FPU because I felt like I wasn’t getting the most out of my college experience. I wanted a job, an internship, or some type of experience that would help towards a future career and I felt like tennis wasn’t doing that for me. So here I am, juggling a few different responsibilities. My old teammates said to me “Oh, you must have so much free time now!” All I could do in response was laugh.
This week midterm exams are coming up, and to be honest I’m very stressed. I really don’t even have too many tough midterms which is nice because last semester was brutal when it came to midterms. I genuinely think that the reason why I am not stressing about midterms is because I am stressing about other things.
Lately the subject of finding a job I actually enjoy has been on my mind. I am just so afraid that I won’t find something that I particularly like because I haven’t found a specific career goal yet. I decided that I will go to the Fresno State (nearby university) Career Fair on Tuesday and I am just going to keep an open mind and put myself out there. Maybe I’ll express interest in jobs I hadn’t before, maybe I’ll be exposed to some I didn’t know about. I’m just really hoping that this career fair will be helpful because I don’t feel like time is on my side at the moment.
Job hunting is tough, I am not really enjoying the process so far.
