10 Years from now…

10 years from now seems like forever away. I will be 31 years old but there are many things I want to accomplish in a simple 10 years.

First of all, I want to build my career. At this point, it seems like I will never get into the Public Relations field. Every job I try to apply for needs at least 3-5 years of experience, but how is a college graduate supposed to get experience when every single job asks for experience. It all seems like a round-a-bout way of telling college graduates that they will not be getting a job when they graduate. Right now, it seems like my life is at a standstill. I am trying to graduate from WSU, and cannot look for jobs back home because home for me is Florida. Many employers do not understand why I am going to school out-of-state, but if they would give my resume a chance I would tell them that I came to WSU for the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication, ranked in the top 25 in the nation. I would tell them that I have worked full-time since my freshman year to gain experience in a real-life setting. I would tell employers that they are missing out on a great opportunity by not hiring me. I believe I can be an asset to any firm that would take me.

Okay, I’m done ranting. In 10 years I also want to have a family, or at least be close to it. I want to find my Prince Charming and live happily ever after. I know I just went on a huge rant about my career, but a family is the one thing I will not live my life without. My brother and his wife are expecting their first baby, and they aren’t even 30 yet. At this time in my life, I don’t even have a prospective husband or someone that I think might be a good fit to be my husband. I think that I am trying too hard to find the love of my life and I need to settle down a little bit, wait until I move back to Florida, and then let my Prince find me. Like my mom used to tell me, “You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.”
