SUCKS. It just sucks. I spent a few hours looking for jobs in Florida again tonight: the bottom line is I was an IDIOT to go into the career I'm currently in, becuase there are no job opportunities anywhere near where I want to live. AND, most of the skills I've learned don't transfer appropriately to other fields: too much data/financial analysis for sales/marketing/writing/editing jobs, too little accounting (and no accounting degree) for credit/finance/banking. ARGH!!!
I'm tired of feeling like the next step forward is my responsibility. And I'm damn tired of sitting still.
