Honesty Time

Keeping it real since 2013

Changing Careers, as told by GIFs


Well. I’m leaving one of my jobs. I’m looking for a new, hopefully full time job. I’ve given up on teaching. And I’m done with costumes for a while, until I can build myself back up and hone my skill to become something actually respectable. I’m looking for a job right now in literally any sector. But I don’t even know where to start, what I’m qualified for, or anything. And I’d like to not get offered $10/hr like a teenager who babysits, thanks.

Here’s how I feel right now, as told by some of my favorite shows. I know many of us can relate.

Yes. I quit.



I’m looking for new jobs. I like to think that I’m doing well in my current field…

Then… Someone offers me an interview and it looks favorable!


….buuuuut they’re only offering me $10/hr, full-time, with no overtime, even though I’d be working overtime hours.

How this whole “looking for an entirely new career” thing is making me feel

How I know I’ll end up eventually, so don’t worry, no matter how long it may take.

  1. I think we should make a new blog rule that all of our posts need to feature AT LEAST this much Ben Wyatt ❤ ❤

  2. I know exactly how you feel. I lost my job last year (my entire office was the victim of “downsizing”) and wound up taking a position that I don’t like and am not qualified for just to make ends meet. Welcome to the new economy, and good luck. On a side note, kudos for using a Doctor Who gif 🙂

  3. The subject of this post is a bummer, but it seems like you have a good attitude towards this change. I hope things turn around soon, then we will all have a Lesley Knope dance party together!

Be Honest!
