My undergraduate collge life is coming to a busy, anxious and somewhat unclimactic end, and to tell ya the truth, I don’t think I have much to show for it. That’s not to say that I havn’t learned many things and experienced countless life changing moments. The thing is, I went to this career fair the other day, and I really wished I could approach any table and fascinate potential employers with an amazing portfolio, and show that I have what it takes to get a great job out of college. Although I made some good impressions and contacts, I left the fair a bit disappointed. First off, because there weren’t many places there I’d like to work, and it just made me realize that I havn’t kept track of many projects and other work I’ve done over the years that I could use for my portfolio. Tonight I’ll be looking at one tape of projects from a video production class I took. I already know its not the best I have to show, but I don’t have much to choose from. This portfolio is more or less just an assignment for my senior seminar class, but it might come in handy someday in an interview as well.

Right now, I just feel like I’m simply going with the motions. What I want to do is really find out what is out there for what I’m interested in and how to get involved. Honestly, I need to find out what I’m interested in. That’s probably where this is all stemmed from. I never really got fully involved with a group or activity in school that would’ve helped with this dilema. In my mind, there was blind faith that things would be alright, whether I was crazy involved or not. Like I didn’t have to be like everybody else and somehow a job would land in my lap and life would be set. Don’t get me wrong, I am confident in my abilities and experience for finding a job, I’m just not as secure with my future as I would like. I’ve never really liked to look that far into the future, but I gotta have a starting point to build on a career, and at this point it doesn’t feel right. We’ll have to see what happens with all that.

That’s where my mind is at right now, I wish I was in a more positive mood, but like they say in the states, things like this happen.

-things you need to look at-
what i’m listening to
what i’m watching
what i’m reading

das ist alles.
