Baring testament to me...in life...in love...in hopes...and in dreams
Quote of the Week
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men who experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
Sometimes it just feels like your life has come up against a brick wall. And then the apathy takes over. I've been tryna stay upbeat and I feel like I've been doing my bit. I've been hardworking with these applications and I'm waiting on the results for these. But it's hard not to feel dejected.
I was always a good student, didn't coast overly much and applied myself to things I found difficult. Education-wise, I know I was held up at school and elsewhere as some to follow, someone to watch, someone going somewhere. This was never a goal and even though I can be annoying and stuff my ability was not something I threw in people's faces.
But here I am post-education, it doesn't seem to matter that I worked hard, scrap that I worked DAMN HARD, that I never failed at anything, that I was a good student. I'm stuck in this shitty job with (some) people who never did a hard days thinking in their lives! With (some)people who have no ambition and never excelled in their lives. WHY AM I STILL STUCK HERE?
I got a call from an agency on Monday and the woman told me I have unrealistic salary expectations. I just busted my ass getting a Master's, which by the way, is self-funded, bloody expensive and from a 'top', internationally renowned institution. And this fool is telling me I should expect a starting salary of £17,000, which is LESS than I was getting after I finished my degree. So my masters AND experience count for nothing. If I could have hit this fool through the phone....it's not like we are talking about jobs in which I had no DIRECTLY-RELATED experience...KMbloodyT.
Seriously, are you there God, it's ME, Nsoromma! Get me out of here!!!
I am a woman; I am a graduate; I am a Ghanaian; I am a Brit; I am a Christian; I am an analyst; I am a mentor; I am a girlfriend; I am a sister; I am an inspiration; I am a disappointment; I am aspiring; I have arrived; I am unique; I am everything I want to be and nothing you should be. I am me. This blog is an expression of me. It shows the ups and downs of life as a 20-something, UK-born, politics-mad, God-fearing, high-achieving, boundary-pushing female of Ghanaian heritage. It's about life, love and the pursuit of happiness...Nsoromma style.
