Don't get me wrong; shopping at Wal-Mart saves quite a bit of money, and the people there are good. I just...I know I can do better, and the fact that I'm not rankles. It's my own fault for not buckeling down and doing what needs to be done--out of fear, or whatever it is that's keeping me from it--but it still sucks.
On a more positive note, I did put in an application with a company that will allow me to actually use my degree. And instead of requiring 2 to 4 years of experience and a bachelor degree for an entry level job, it says less than a year. Meaning, so long as you can demonstrate knowledge of the programs utilized, you've got a chance.
I have my fingers crossed.
