Looking back at my past experiences, with trying to stay positive, has helped me with my situation now. I lost my job after three years with the same company. So[JP1] the day after I lost my job I enrolled myself into college. Taking the time to earn a degree cant[JP2] be something negative. I also knew having a six month old daughter and bills to pay was going to be hard with the economy the way it is. So now[JP3] I have been searching for a job for over a month, with no luck, as well as focusing on school. In this time[JP4] I have told myself to be patient and think positive since it has worked before. One day I will find a job that is meant for me and I know that I just need to stay positive and keep my eyes open to new opportunities.
