i am completely hopeless

does anyone know what joined.com is? here i s the e-mail that mentions it:
Hi Allison,
I am following up on earlier correspondence regarding your job search. I wanted to touch base to see if you are still looking for work in the Clerical/Administrative field or any other industry. The latest postings are found here.

it is the here part that links me to joined.com. i don't know really why this person sent this e-mail to me because it is kinda pointless. i wish they would just e-mail me if they wanted to offer me a job or interview me. i get excited when i get an e-mail from someone that looks like it might be interested in me and then poof they are just basically sending me an ad for some website. has anyone else gotten any e-mails like this? i don't even know how i got on their list because i haven't even applied to that company.
i hate waiting for any responses from any of the people i have applied with. after a few days i kind of give up hope of hearing from the people i applied with. i would call but half the time there is no number or it is a job that i found on craigslist and they say not to call. sometimes i don't even know where they are located. grrrr. i have even applied to just work at places like krogers and i can't even get a job there! there is something wrong here.
the other day my dad told me that it would probably be pointless to get an mba right now because i should get some experience first and it is so close to my major that i would probably be repeating some classes. which kind of makes sense but i don't know what to do know. i haven't been able to get a job yet and i don't know what else i want to do. it seems like the last 4 years have been pointless because even after getting a degree i still can't get a job.

today i recieved my diploma! :) it looks pretty nice but there is one part that is wrinkled a bit. oh well i am just happy to have it finally! the company that prints them also does framing and if you order a frame, they will reprint your diploma so that you will have one in the frame and one for your files or whatever. i am thinking about ordering one. it made me really happy to finally have gotten it. kinda makes it like i really did do it and that it is official. i just wish i could figure out the rest of my life...

road called life

so i have been filling out job applications and my parents are still on my case about not having a job yet. sorry no one is exactly hiring right now...... i can't force myself on someone until they give me a job. i am still going to take the gmat and apply for graduate school. i hope they at least except me.
for the first time i am really scared for my life. i am not sure that my parents want me to talk about this but we sold one of our cars and the guy wants to return it and is really making me scared since he knows where we live. i thought about justing going on vacation to like disney world (the most carefee place in the world!) but then i looked at plane ticket prices and hotel prices and ticket prices to get into disney world and i realized that it is really expensive to do that. i could probably afford it but it is so expensive. the hotel room would be over $1000 for a couple of days! and so would the plane tickets. for tickets to disney world it would be like $250 for a few days! it is $75 a day!
life sucks.
