I’m usually an optimistic person….
It can be tough to stay that way when you are attempting to enter the job market at a time when the world may in fact be ending. Or so it seems.
Stocks are plummeting (not that I have money for stocks.) Banks are closing. Hundreds of people are being laid off in the business (and building) I want to work in. The county is a financial mess. And did I mention that whole chunks of the world hate us?
I have been subconsciously ignoring the major financial upheaval until today when I was sitting in the Times’ lunch room, I couldn’t help but hear the TV. I hate to say we’re screwed– but with nothing getting done in Congress, screwed seems like a pretty tame description.
I know we’ll recover. We have to.
