Ms. (not so) Incredible
Up, down, side-to-side… it feels like I’m being pulled in every direction possible. When in college, or even in the real world, you are told to not stretch yourself too thin, to relax once in a while and that it doesn’t always have to be go, go, go! I mean come on, really? I didn’t want to be the one *insert obscene word for female dog here* to say it, but it’s all a bunch of BS! Just this past week I’ve had interviews, had to keep up with my school work, plan for the next school year and work my two jobs--all while being told, “it's not what you know it’s who knows you.”
Between updating my resume (yet again) and researching internships, I feel like I’m Mrs. Incredible, a.k.a. Elastigirl, or Mr. Fantastic--minus the fantastic. So, anybody want to tell me it’s not go, go, go?
Today in my management class we were talking about The BSG Matrix. My professor was pointing out that if you have a high Market Share and a low Business Growth Rate, you were filled with question marks. The question marks were the most important because they had the potential to become stars. Although that topic pertains to systems in management, I couldn’t help but connect it to how I’m feeling. And that’s because right about now I can tell you I feel like a big, giant, humungous question mark with absolutely no idea of how to become a star.
Anyone else feel like this or am I just running around in my brain (like the episode of “SpongeBob” where everything is on fire and he’s shredding all of his knowledge)?
On a more positive note: now that I’ve had my rant and publicly vented to my readers (if I even have any), all I can say is keep reminding yourself that in order to climb to the top of the mountain you have to stumble over a few rocks… or boulders.
That’s all I have for today! Stay tuned for my next post!
