Lose Control Part 3

SURPRISE… because you all waited so patiently last time I decided to post this weeks part of the story a little early this week! 


I cried all the way home. Literally, ALL THE WAY(so not safe). 
When I got home I proceeded to stay in bed all day and continue to apply for jobs. 
Really there was no use in getting out of bed, getting dressed or doing anything productive.  I was a HOT mess. 

It was the middle of April and all my friends were still in college living up their last month of college life and I was stuck at home 3 hours away. I WAS NOT a happy camper. 

Finally my parents put their foot down. I had to go out, do something. 
I begrudgingly got a "job" at a tutoring center close to my house. 
It was awful, I like to refer to it as worksheet boot camp, literally worksheets ALL DAY LONG. 

I had come from a mentality that I was going to be independent work at an amazing school with amazing student to working 2 hours a day locked in a cubical watching children do worksheets. This was really looking like my future. 

By graduation 2 girls in a class of 350+ had received teaching jobs. 
T-W-O. We were all freaking out. 



Graduation came and went and I (along with majority of my class) was jobless. 

And then came a new twist.
My Dad got a new job… In South Carolina. My safety net, my back up plan, MY PARENTS WERE MOVING 1,209 miles way!!



Now not only was I looking ahead to a future with out a career I was now looking at being homeless AND careerless. 

Not getting a teaching job was a REAL tangible possibility at the time. All to real.

I had no idea what to do, where to turn.
I wasn't even praying I was doing that "im-suppose-to-be-praying-but-dont-even-know-what-to-ask-for-do-think-or-pray" thing.

I had to make a move. So I did. 

Part 4 next week!
