Cho, take this as a sign to start anew somewhere else.  What's happening with Samsung?  If you're looking for something in Chicago I know some people so just let me know.  Good luck - chin up, this board needs you!   :-* 

Samsung didn't call me back (surprise surprise)


No worries - plenty of other opportunities abound.  Also, if you're serious about SF, I can have my brother ask around for you.  Are you checking around on monstertrak.com?  They usually have good entry-level opportunities and positions for relatively fresh grads.

Grew up in Concord, outside Charlotte.  Currently live in Raleigh, work in Rocky Mount.  Family from Ducktown TN.

Cho, you gotta friend in Carolina...lemme know if you ever wanna visit.

I don't believe *&^% happens for a reason, it just happens.  You just gotta figure out how to do watcha gotta do with what you got now.  You'll get into plenty of good law schools next year.  You're a smart guy that doesn't need to be wasting his brains on *&^%-jobs.  You should definitely go to law school next year, no matter what.  Go ahead and put that in the plans now.  Look around at what your options are to set you up well for that...if it's going back to the *&^% job and biding your time for the next 10 months, go for it.  Maybe find something interesting to do that doesn't pay *&^%...if you were ever interested in any kind of work that doesn't pay *&^% but you always wanted to do it, this is the time to give it a try.  

take it easy, both of you. catch you guys on the flip side.

Where in Carolina are you from?
OK, really small world!  My most recent ex-boyfriend is from Concord.  And my grandparents live in Ducktown!  And another ex lives in Raleigh.

Wait, your grandparents are the other two people that live in Ducktown!?!?!?!?

That is bizarre...if you don't mind me asking, who are your grandparents?  my grandfather was pretty much the town historian of ducktown...ran a general store there for years and years.

I think I'll use my time of unemployment to go sit on corners, smoke, and play pool.

Hmmm... a lot's happened since I logged off yesterday, huh?

Man, there's a lot of crap jobs out there.  Just apply to law school and support yourself in the meantime working small-time stuff.  Jobs like that are a dime a dozen... you get canned, you find another one.

As long as you don't intend to make a career out of what you were doing, don't get down about it.  Easy for me to say, I know... but life's full of challenges, and you have to live it on your own terms.
