I'm so ready to bring my horse home. But to bring him home, first, I need to get a job. I've been applying at TONS of places. I always go back and introduce myself to the manager, and do everything I can to seem like the best person to hire. But not ONCE have I ever been called back for an interview. I dress appropriately, am polite, talk to the manager, show that I am responsible, and do everything I should do. But nothing. There are so many people in my area looking for work right now that you can be SO picky in hiring someone. Why would they hire a 17, almost 18 year old with no previous work experience over an adult who has had several jobs before?

It's just SO frustrating! I went and tried out Zeus almost 3 months ago and have been searching for a job ever since so we can bring him home. I know he's not going anywhere, he will be sold only to me and no one else, I know that. But I just want him home. I hate sitting here, applying at so many places, not being hired by any, and just waiting.

Another part of the deal is that I have to try my hardest to bring up my grades. I have already brought up my grades from B's, C's, and a D or two, to all A's and B's except for my math class, which they understand (i'm an artist, we suck at math, ha ha), and my AP Language and Comp. class. My AP Lang & Comp. class is ALL writing, which I'm really no good at. I've improved a lot in my writing because of this class but it is an extremely difficult class. Still they refuse to look at any of my other good grades and constantly yell at me about that one grade, which I'm already bringing up! I just went to talk to my Mom about how frustrated I feel about not being able to find a job and somehow she flipped the conversation into a yelling fit about my grades! I'm doing EVERYTHING I can to do what they ask of me and I really am trying my hardest. But they just don't believe me.

Ugh. I think I'm done. I'm just SO frustrated.

*hug* I do know the feeling.. well part of it. :3

I tried to get a job for two years.. x_X It's depressing not tobe able to get one! But there's hope, I finally found one, and a good one at that, and so will you :)

Thanks! I just found the best job ever! Ha ha.

Wow, so this all happened very fast but I was emailing the owner of the barn where we're going to keep Zeus and she offered to have me work all day on Sundays and she'll take off $300 a month for it! So I have a job! Looks like it'll be enough to bring Zeus home too! I'm so excited!

Great! Congrats :)

I was about to give you the "oh I'm so sorry you can't find a job" speech and I read down to your next post. Voilá! you have what sounds like a great job.
Congratulations :D

Ha ha, thanks!
It happened really fast, almost just after I posted this!

Great news Gillian! Just when you think things look hopeless, WHAM!, good things happen. So happy for you! :-)

Congratulations! It sounds like a great job.

From a rant into a Yay post! Nice!
Too bad your mum isn't listening to you about your grades. That must suck. The only thing you can really do is just keep improving them, time will tell. You could also have you teachers write a note to your mum saying how you are trying and to lay off. Well not in those exact words, but you get it. lol

Congrats on the job!

Things can be difficult eh. You might have to try at places that you are to fond of just get a chance to start up a resume. We have all had to work bad jobs to get to the ones we enjoy. Keep trying, something will come your way :-)
