Quotes for the Un/Employed

I was snatched by my fellow unemployed journalism-alumni friends Kat and KJ a while ago, walked back and forth UP-CMC to file some request for a transcript of my grades and generally talked/ranted/expressed astronomical angst about, well, non-life. Ultimately, we had the following directly translated quotable quotes you yourself might use for your daily living. Assuming you look up to us as pedestals of unemployed:

Angco, 2010.

  • “I used to believe that you should take your first job with buckets of passion and interests cos it’ll definitely catch up with your long-term wants in life. But that was in April, after graduation. I remind myself that it’s already July.”
  • “Sometimes, I feel that I am directionless but I know that God has plans for me.”
  • “I can’t be a radio jock. I can’t talk and talk without seeing the actual person I’m talking to.”
  • “I inspect this website of this network everyday, if they have openings. No, Barry, they don’t have something for you.”
  • “KJ, Barry, what makes you happy?”

Galang,  2010.

  • “We become rejected. All of us. Even if we’re from UP.”
  • “I think employment won’t make us feel complacent. It’s just that the society’s plunked too much pressure!”
  • “Do you know this 2009 movie which tackles about a girl’s life after graduation?” (Kat answers Vick Jenson’s Post Grad starring Alexis Bledel.)
  • “At least we have a degree. Some people actually don’t have the luxuries to even finish college. And I feel compassionate about them.”
  • “Happiness is never fulfilled in career-hunting. Cos everyone of us, rich or poor, unemployed or employed, we do the same routines everyday. I can live in peace and sleep and be well. They just manage to have the better resources to live in peace and sleep and be well unto.”
  • “Jenny Humphrey Must Die.”

Viloria, 2010.

  • “Let’s set a deadline for our bumhood asses. Before Gossip Girl Season Four premieres!”
  • “Don’t ask me about happiness, Kat. That’s so… existential.”
  • “I just watched Lindsay Lohan cry after the judge sentenced her with 90 days in jail. I miss her good self.”
  • “My legs hurt.”

I think Kat and KJ don’t mind their quotes being of public consumption. I meanwhile lay grave patent over mine. They’re so much intelligible.
