Never in a million years did I think it would be this difficult to find a job in Oxford, Miss. I have a college degree and some great professional experience, but that does not seem to matter here. The only thing that makes me feel better is to know that I am not alone. There is a great group of girls here whose husbands are in their first year of law school, and they are having just as difficult as a time as I am. It is not me, or them, it is the job market. I would love to work at the university, but unless I want to be a pilot, a custodian, or chemical scientist, or a pro-golf coach, they are not interested in me. I guess you just have to know the right people, and I do not know them, yet.
So this is my plan: If I am not employed by December 1, I am going to quit looking for a job and start having babies. That seems to be the logical next step. Aaron doesn't think that having a baby just because I am bored is a good idea, but he is not being very considerate.
