In a Rut

I'm feeling lost.

I'm looking for work and failing.  There are not very many jobs that aren't retail in this valley.  And I've been turned down 3 times so far in the last month and a half after interviewing.

I'm studying for exams but feeling very inefficient/under-prepared.

I feel like I'm constantly closing at work, which makes it so I don't see Caleb at all (he is gone before I get home from work, and I am gone before he gets up from sleeping).

Getting yelled at by customers is taking a bigger toll lately.  I have little patience for it anymore, it seems, and feel on the verge of tears quite often.  And yet, I'm still grateful to even have a job, since so many don't.

I'm not sure what is going on with some of my friends right now.

I know, I know, I only graduated college 3 months ago; this will seem like nothing in the long run.  But it still stinks really bad right now!

So if you have any job insights that I don't already know, please clue me in!  (I worked at an employment center for a few months, so I know of most any job search engine/job board that is out there already.  I am looking for word-of-mouth type of jobs.)

Thanks very much.
