I wannabe employed

Before Summer to do list:
Finish Yearbook
Get a Summer Job

            One of the following things on that list is done. I'll give you a hint, it is the last one. I am officially a college student. Eyes full of wonder and excitement. The world at my finger tips, or at least that is what I am told. It is currently June 3rd and I will be leaving shortly for a job interview. I should have had a job lined up weeks ago, but after quitting/ getting fired from my summer job (I'll cover that train wreck later), I was sent back to job hunting. Being an 18 year old  who hasn't had to work a day in her life has its challenges. McDonald's is hiring, but the idea of fast food makes me sick and factories only hire employee's families. Lastly, all remaining jobs are filled.
      It doesn't help that I like to let things fall into place. I am not meant to job hunt, but I am learning. Countless hours networking has landed me 3 part time jobs, a morning concession stand worker, a drive-in movie theater employee (depending on today's interview), and a July nanny.Not bad jobs for spending my first week and a half of summer on the phone talking to close friends, old friends, pretty much anyone who would hire me. I was practically begging.
         So here I am, I have a weekend job work concessions and way too much free time. I don't do well with boredom. I work out and spend time running around town just trying to make use of the day. This is how I got here. Sitting at my desk on my laptop poorly writing about my job struggles. Welcome to my life full of old wants, new wants, and the oddities of being an 18 year old about to go off to college.
