There’s a supreme difference between “pursuing a career” and “looking for a job.”

Though they kind of mean the same thing, the former usually implies that you’re chasing your passions – trying to grab at something that’s going to bring you fulfillment and fun, and maybe change the world around you for the better.

The latter implies that you just need a way to make your landlord shut up.

Luckily, there’s memes to soothe the pain.

But I know how to use crayons, so that’s something.

Honesty isn’t ALWAYS the best policy.

You know how to sweet talk your way into a position, huh?

Maybe they won’t notice this time?

7. Under pressure

*dun dun dun du-du-du-dun*

6. Basic needs

5. Gentle reminder

I’m not even sure how I’ve made it this far in life.

4. My cup overflows

What blessings I have.

I have an account here? I have literally never been on this website in my life.

2. Set apart

Let’s just be real about it.

And sadness, probably.
