a compromising position

I’m not sure how to navigate the world these days. Are you?

I’m in a job search and employers see me as over-qualified or under-qualified. I apply for jobs and am under-qualified for a full-time job in my chosen field. I try and try and try so hard to prove myself capable at my part-time job, but it’s been 3 years and I’m just not getting anywhere. I feel as if I am not good enough—and then over-qualified for most of the jobs I feel that I could do and would enjoy doing. I would be happy to do data entry all day… but thus far, I can’t seem to convince anyone.

I have a paralyzed vocal cord but I can speak well enough to not be considered eligible for disability…. but not well enough to do presentations or teach or talk on the telephone (for work). I am not quite abled or disabled.

everything seem caught in this middle place and I hope and pray that I can get unstuck.

But the good news is that I can now sing 2 octaves. I just have 3 more to go!

About The Lost Pedestrian

In my wanderings throughout the moments/days/years, I try in earnest to find the mystical within the mundane and the mundane within the mystical, oftentimes confusing one from the other. I have wandered and roamed through many a city, many a town, in a state of wonder and bewilderment, without necessarily going anywhere. I am easily lost, but eventually found. (I am guessing you have just found me). My sincere hope is that you will find Something in this warehouse of thought, memory and false memory, words, numbers, tangents, murmurs, echoes (lots and lots of echoes), voices, dreams, and other paraphernalia.
