now.. i realize the problem with this topic is once you read someone else's post, you might feel less inclined to post. i can think of one simple way around this: please post before reading i'm putting this topic up with no intention of solving or even commenting on anyone else's circumstances. more than anything, i think it'll be an interesting attempt to broaden one's perspective on things. not that i could stop commenting/problem solving, but i won't be describing my own dilemmas with the intention of drawing comments. i'll be posting cliffs instead of thorough breakdown. what are the biggest things weighing in your mind right now? === life's been pretty kind to me: - i can't find work. unlike the typical college graduate i have terrible interpersonal skills, very little work experience, no skills in high demand, and average grades. until i find work, i'll be living in my parents' house. - i'm crazy about a girl who's way out of my league. i gave myself a year to see if i've underestimated myself, and i still think i need to develop much more as a person before i can think of stepping up to the plate again. - i still don't really have a life. i desperately need to sharpen my interpersonal skills, because the belief that i could be better is eating away at my confidence.
