Respect and love your fanfiction writers and fanart artists. They do a lot of work for people to look at without asking for really anything in return.
That´s not true, all of them ask for appreciation, some for criticism to get better and EVERY SINGLE ONE wants to talk endlessly and discuss their ideas.
So yeah. Just money is not expected.

Reason Behind URL: Well, long long story, so back in the day when I was like 14, I was looking for a cool name for a character, story was about angels and stuff, so my sis told me the lead singer of POD named his daughter Nevaeh, like heaven. I instantly fell in love with the name. The story is forgotten, but since i liked the name so much, I kept it as a nick for my internet presence. I wasn´t aware that it is a pretty common first name in the US, though.

I can absolutely relate. Struggling majorly with job problems right now. Hence the reason I’m currently living with my parents, heh heh. Applying to jobs while still having a job is always a good thing to do.
It would probably be great if we could switch positions. If I would still live with my parents, there would be no problem at all. Cause then I´d only have to pay health insurance and that is not so expensive (it´s Germany after all)
You know what the most awful thing was? When I asked my boss about my contract she said ‘oh, but you sounded like you didn´t want to’ (I didn´t say a fucking word) and then ‘but you need time for applying!’
… I try not to be mad. Stuff like THIS is why I quit the job! Sadly, she will never realize=.=
How about you? I know you were a swim instructor, but I guess you are looking for something else right now?
Job searching is an absolute nightmare. Even with years of experience, it’s nearly impossible to find a job. Urg!
It is =.= I cannot say how it would be if I had experience, but it just sucks either way. I mean, the easy way would be to tell my boss I changed my mind and continue with my PhD, but I know why I quit in the first place and no matter how fucking annoyed I am right now, I don´t want to stay there. Besides, what am I gonna do with a PhD in Plant Biology… NOT getting a job afterwards, that´s it. Not to mention that I already saw the future, since I don´t suck at my job and my boss had no problem with me till now, I would´ve ended like every PhD student in that position. Staying at uni for fucking forever. PhD in three years my ass.
I could be a bit more relaxed if I knew I could continue with my work till I have something new. End of May is … soon. And I´m a bit worried. I should have no problem paying my bills for two additional months, but still.
Whatever, I´ve had enough for today. I won´t have much to do tomorrow at work anyway, and since my boss is an ass, I can be, too, so I´m looking for jobs at work. Ha.
Y´all remember when I applied for PhD positions? Back then I was super insecure about my abilities, I´m not anymore. It´s still fucking IMPOSSIBLE to find anything! Like, every company in Biotech or Life Science has something like ‘we are especially interested in graduates from University, whether Master or PhD, to integrate in our blabla’ written somewhere on the page.
Yeah? Then why does EVERY job offer start with ‘minimum work experience 1,2,3 years??? Honestly, I get it, you want the young ones, but you don´t want to be the company which has to waste resources by educating those graduates. I get it. But if every fucking company wants some other company to take those people, I get the vibe that NO ONE WILL BE LEFT TO TAKE VACANCIES.
God =.= For all you americans, if you thought the job market would be better in Europe, well, it isn´t.
It´s just… I´m kinda desperate. My boss, who offered me to let me stay till I have something new decided she wants to be a bitch after all and reclined her offer (…) and I don´t get money from the state since I have only worked for half a year so far in my life, and that means that after May, I need to pay for rent and health insurance and food and well. I need a fucking job!
I will write initiative applications, whatever. Maybe one of those assholes will notice that no, I don´t have experience YET, but I have a fuckton of good qualities, let´s start with my fucking fluency in English, I can use damn PC programs, I can learn new ones fast, whatever, even my bitch of a boss told me that I am intelligent and learn fast, hell I´m working in plant biology now, I had no idea of plant biology whatsoever till three month ago, so wtf I can learn anything in the biotech field if I want to!
… when I applied for PhD positions, after some time I was like ‘fuck it all’ and just wrote whatever I thought necessary in the cover letters. I haven´t even written one application yet (I was sifting through all the unsuitable job offers this weekend =.=) and I´m at this point already.
Also, not for nothing, I´m a chemist, after my Bachelor I focussed on Biochemistry and now I am doing my PhD in Biology. If that doesn´t show I can work interdisciplinary, then I don´t know.
