The beginning of the end

There are now just a couple of weeks to go until the beginning of my final semester.  Getting to the Master’s degree has been an arduous and expensive journey.  The final semester alone is expected to cost about $3,000.00.  Luckily, I have saved it and do not need to incur further debt as I near completion.  Beyond the trials of the final semester and the comprehensive exam, the main question that arises now concerns employment.  I have faith that the right position is just waiting for me to finish the degree, but with the economy as it is now, I can’t help but admit that I am afraid.  If the job isn’t there, how will I pay for the loans?  I guess it’s time to reread The Secret and make sure I take the time to express my dismay with the economy and the failure of the current federal government with my votes.

Our primary elections are next week, and as I go through the candiates, my only concern is the economy.  All the other distractions that are being thrown about do not matter one bit in my world.  I couldn’t care less about contraceptives, who paid which taxes or graduated (or didn’t) from which college or whatever other dirt is being thrown about.  The only thing that matters in this election is my pocket book and my shrinking bank balance.  As I assess the incumbents, I look at their voting records.  Did they ever raise taxes?  Did they ever raise the salaries of themselves or their staff?  My own meager pay has been stagnant for a couple of years now.  Are they in office to line their own pockets, or are they there for my benefit?  These are the questions I ask, and if there is a single time that their record in any way ever cost me more, I’m voting for the other guy, whoever he or she is.  Nuff said.

    good god woman, you might consider running for office. I’m amazed at your committment to the right person. good for you xo

    • Sadly, I’m far too honest and forthright to run for politial office. Besides, I don’t want the entire world exploring my life. I’m too private for that kind of invasion! LOL!
