Moved to NYC early November. Still no job. I've been applying and hustling myself betwixt bouts of depression and breakdowns. It's been a rough ride. The roughest and toughest and loneliest time in my life, well, the second loneliest time ever. No need to expound on the former. Just trust me, it sucked. Sooooo I'm posting my resume here for everyone, no one and anyone to let me know what the hell is wrong with me. Not enough experience? Starting a business, getting married and graduating college concurrently was not a good idea? A deterrent to my maturation? The whole process of having to create a resume for the first time was a downer. If I was 21 years old, maybe this would look alright. I'm not. An old woman and a month away from 30. Old. The formatting got messed up in the copy/paste process. Go ahead, bring it all on at once. Woe is me.
