The most important thing I realized is that painful breakups, unrequited love, shitty jobs and the like help us to BUILD CHARACTER and that no matter how bad it feels, we are much better off because of it. Sometimes you have to stand alone to make sure you can. Forget what you want to remember what you deserve.You may not end up where you thought you'd be, but you'll always end up where you were meant to be. You can either let these bad things, define you, destroy you or strengthen you. Fight through it like a warrior. Greater things are to come.

Quick Story

Once Upon a Time there lived a dork who was unemployed.
All her life, lady luck has never been her friend. She knows shes unlucky, but she really didn't think she was THAT unlucky.
I mean, all the jobs that she's had in the past were cut short either due to shortage of work, lack of budget, douchebag for a boss, and end of contract.
It's not ALLLLL completely related to bad luck right?
So here she is, with a variety of experience, a wealth of skill sets and a vibe of desperation (because she needs money).
Then here comes the wave of job interviews.
But none of them works out because she either fucks up, not fit for the company, did not do her research/prep work, and was not hired because she was holding a temp job that she could not leave.
Again, not really about luck right? Perhaps bad timing...........and maybe a bit of bad luck too. 
But she's still persistent and determined!
Over the past 2 weeks she's just been mindlessly applying for jobs in which she figures its worth a shot to send something in but not expecting a call back. All while working on her areas that needs improvements.
Three days ago her laptop did not turn on. Friends of the dork suspected it was a battery/power supply issue, the techs says it might be a motherboard issue.
Two days later one of those companies whom she applied to two weeks ago e-mails her back asking for an interview. Also listed in that e-mail is a whole LIST of specific things they would like to see from the dork.
But the dork's laptop is in service. The tech people said the return date is in 7- 21 days.
The dork's interview is in 5 days.
So now she has about 4 and a half days to replicate and re-create A LOT of her projects for this job interview. All the while learning some new advance skills to hopefully be able to knock the socks off of the THREE people whom will be interviewing her (includes an Art Director, a Senior Affiliate Coordinator and Director of Sponsorship Sales).
Yes, the dork concludes she has the worst fucking luck in he world.
Or rather, lack of.


Story of my life. Story of my FUCKING LIFE PEOPLE. UGHHHHH
Please wish me good luck. I NEED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
