Dear Economy,

You won't get me down. Never, ever did I imagine that I would be on the phone with the unemployment office twice a week discussing my ever-changing job situation. I am relieved to have a job, but between lay-offs, furloughs and temporary part-time placements, it has proven to be a bit more challenging than assumed.

Might I suggest adding "In case you find yourself suddenly amongst the unemployed" class to college students, so that we are all better aware of our rights? Especially with you being as down on your luck as you are, it would be more of a warning to those of us who are ecstatic about our degrees and ready to share our talent, who happen have the door shut on them a few times soon after earning those ever coveted degrees.

Though, I didn't get a class on the real world, nor do I enjoy this on-again, off-again job situation, I WILL NOT let you get me down. I am young. I am aspiring. I am your future. Sure, I may have to go into debt just to apply for law school and to take the entry exam, but I have so many other tricks up my sleeve. I can now use my time for my new blog (details coming soon) and to volunteer, and study so hard for the LSAT that law schools won't even know what to do with me.

So take that economy.

Your rival and soon to be your trash kicker,

Erin Leigh
