It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “find your passion” and “know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees.

I just posted this on facebook
An event that happened this morning:
Went to a test for an internship, and aced it.
I asked when I could expect to hear back about it, I was told some time next week.
About 4 hours later they call and offer me the job, and say they need me 5 days a week then off handedly mention that its unpaid.
I tell them that I already have a part time gig that is paid and won’t be leaving that, which I mentioned in the interview.
I am told that they need to speak to HR again about that.
I get a call minutes later.
But what I really meant is
The job market is bullshit. Unpaid internships are bullshit. Why does no one respect me, like I can’t even get a response to a thank you email from an interview I thought went well. I am so angry and frustrated and scared. I just want to be able to live independently.
That is all.
