So I'm talking to Novak's webmaster and this is what he says,

Milan: Novak's injury isn't serious!
Jess: So why isn't he playing Toronto?
Milan: He is in Belgrade to relax.
Jess: One week isn't enough? He needs two?
Milan: He wants to relax 100% before his next ATP event.

:rolleyes: He's not injured. He's just resting. He is skipping a mandatory event to rest.

The only time I did that is when she thought I needed professional help because I'm confused as to what I want to do with my life.

I think it's hard to understand what this feels like unless you've graduated from college and felt this confusion yourself because it's something everyone goes through. Not every freaked out college grad goes and seeks help.

I said when I responded to her then that it works for some people with some problems, but this isn't really one of those situations for me.

No, I meant to say 'there's an article that is more detailed in Novak's website.' I had just read it, and I thought it said more than just 'he needs to rest'. Plus understand the kid, he almost faints on court... maybe playing this week would risk his health.

Look, since you don't have any kind of support in your family to do what you really want to do, and you don't seem to know what to do with your life now, I don't think I'd be the only one to think a psycologist would be such a bad idea. See, maybe you need that little push, a little encouragement, and they could give it to you.

Now if you really didn't want to go, you could've said 'No, I'm not into that' rather than all that you said.

For the record, I was in the extremely fortunate position to have both very supportive parents and the knowledge of exactly what I wanted to do. But many of my friends were not in the same fortunate position. They've all done various things, working in labs, teaching, trying grad schools, etc. I don't think there's anything wrong with being unsure about what you want to do but I think you really have to take a lot of risks and put yourself out there.

My best friend was unsure about what she wanted to do and she moved to Arkansas for 2 years to do Teach for America - a Taiwanese girl who had never lived more than 20 min from home is suddenly stuck in the deep South. It was a huge risk and a huge step. One of my other best friends did a year in St. Louis and did almost 3000 hours of volunteer work, and now he just finished and is busting his ass to try to get into the field he has now decided he's interested in.

I don't know if I would suggest professional help, in this case, at this point, but maybe work on perfecting your resume and send it out to places, even if it's a shot in the dark, do it. Put yourself out there. If you're unhappy with the way things are, you're the only one with the power to change it. I'm sure you can, but you have to take the risks and that can be scary. I decided to do what I wanted to do i had to move 3000 miles away from home, to a huge city where I knew no one. It's lonely sometimes, but I have the big picture in mind. You just have to keep at it and not get discouraged. You have to have the attitude that nothing will keep you from your happiness. It's really hard to go out there "unprotected," not knowing what will happen, getting a ton of rejection and stuff, but it's something most of us have to do. :)

And if your parents are that much of a burden on your life and making you that unhappy, then you need to start putting things in motion that will help you move out. I know that I would rather die than live at home again, so I know how important it can be. Even if your ultimate goal is to move to Europe or wherever, the importance of living alone and bieng happy in your living situation can't be overemphasized. You say you're a shopaholic, so maybe work on that and start saving instead of spending. Be more careful about things so that you can start putting all the things in motion to get your life in the direction that will make you happy. :)

None of this stuff is easy, but if you look at it with a sense of optimism and hope, then I think it's a lot more bearable.

It has to come from ME. I need to figure it out. It's not something someone else can tell me. That's all my entire life has been and why I'm in this situation now. Other people telling me what to do with my life. Like I said, this kind of thing takes TIME, which is why I am working jobs I hate until I figure things out. That is ALL.

For the record, I was in the extremely fortunate position to have both very supportive parents and the knowledge of exactly what I wanted to do. But many of my friends were not in the same fortunate position. They've all done various things, working in labs, teaching, trying grad schools, etc. I don't think there's anything wrong with being unsure about what you want to do but I think you really have to take a lot of risks and put yourself out there.

My best friend was unsure about what she wanted to do and she moved to Arkansas for 2 years to do Teach for America - a Taiwanese girl who had never lived more than 20 min from home is suddenly stuck in the deep South. It was a huge risk and a huge step. One of my other best friends did a year in St. Louis and did almost 3000 hours of volunteer work, and now he just finished and is busting his ass to try to get into the field he has now decided he's interested in.

I don't know if I would suggest professional help, in this case, at this point, but maybe work on perfecting your resume and send it out to places, even if it's a shot in the dark, do it. Put yourself out there. If you're unhappy with the way things are, you're the only one with the power to change it. I'm sure you can, but you have to take the risks and that can be scary. I decided to do what I wanted to do i had to move 3000 miles away from home, to a huge city where I knew no one. It's lonely sometimes, but I have the big picture in mind. You just have to keep at it and not get discouraged. You have to have the attitude that nothing will keep you from your happiness. It's really hard to go out there "unprotected," not knowing what will happen, getting a ton of rejection and stuff, but it's something most of us have to do. :)

And if your parents are that much of a burden on your life and making you that unhappy, then you need to start putting things in motion that will help you move out. I know that I would rather die than live at home again, so I know how important it can be. Even if your ultimate goal is to move to Europe or wherever, the importance of living alone and bieng happy in your living situation can't be overemphasized. You say you're a shopaholic, so maybe work on that and start saving instead of spending. Be more careful about things so that you can start putting all the things in motion to get your life in the direction that will make you happy. :)

None of this stuff is easy, but if you look at it with a sense of optimism and hope, then I think it's a lot more bearable.

in short: Put yourself out there, take risks and have no fear of rejection, keep the bigger picture in mind, and save money so that you can have the means to do what you want when you ultimately decide.

Deb, I have been trying. I just recently was able to get a second job. I haven't been shopping half as much as usual and I am trying to save to move out. All that is already in motion. I applied to grad school and got rejected, so this is all I can do for the moment is just work at where I'm at until I have some funds. Why do you think I'm so upset that I wasted all this money on Toronto for Novak not to be there? Because it put me in debt to my parents that I need to pay off before I can continue to save. When it was something I was going to enjoy, I was happy to do it, but now it is a burden that is pushing me further from my goals.

I have been doing SO much research into many options. It's just like, "Send my resume to where? For what?" I don't have a vision, I don't have a goal to work towards, that's the hard thing that I just need to sit and figure out.

Thank you for understanding.

I may be catching on to the argument late but most college/university grads go this route. If you're being told to see a psychologist cause you dont know what you want to do the second you graduated then the advice is terrible. I know I did a bunch of crappy jobs after grad until I found out what I wanted to do. It was all part of the process to me

Couldn't you have said it before, instead of just saying 'yes I'm offended'?

I sort of understand what you are feeling, because that is exactly the situation I'm terrified to be in when I graduate. I do not want to be like 'now what do I do?' because it would drive me nuts. I have tortured myself thinking about what career to follow, which one will make me happy and I know I'll be able to work on for the rest of my life, and it's stressed me a lot back when I constantly thought about it, so I had to give it up and now I need to start thinking all over again and I don't even WANT to put myself through that again.

That's why it annoyed me when you said 'you gotta go through it to understand what it feels like' because I can already imagine it and it's one of the things I'm most scared of, it's always been.

Thats what I was saying. :hug: And that's what I'm doing. :lol:

When you graduated did you know when you wanted to work in as a final goal, or were you just completely clueless? Like was it more, "Oh I want to do this but I don't know how to get started" or was it "AH I have no clue what to do."?

And if it was the second one, *sigh* that's me right now.

Thank you for understanding.Well then good! You're thinking ahead and putting things in motion. Are you not interested in your major anymore? I always told my best friend, who couldn't decide what to do (and she had a lot of pressure to go to law school from her mom), "What can you see yourself being happy doing every day, when your mom is long gone and can't yell at you about it?" she decided law was not that thing so after her two years of teaching she took a radical departure and is going to get her Masters.

If you want to go to grad school, don't let the rejection get you down. Reapply, find a new school to apply to, rewrite your essays and have more people read them to make sure they're perfect, whatever it takes. one of my other friends got a degree in developmental biology, like wtf can you do with that except go to grad school? Well she didn't want to, so for 3 years she worked in a lab for peanuts, had her heart broken by a guy, and had no clue what she wanted. Then all of a sudden she decided to do grad school and she's happy about it now. It's ok to be in limbo for a few years after graduation, it's very common. so if you work multiple retail jobs for a couple years til things start to come together, don't let that discourage you. That's where keeping the bigger picture in mind is so important. even if you don't have the final goal in mind at this point, all these things you're doing along the way will help you get there, to whatever it may end up being. It's just all about the perspective you take on it, and if you look at this time in your life as just a stepping stone that you have to pass through to get to greater things instead of being stuck in an indecisive rut, it might help :)

See the hard thing is that I thought I was studying something I was going to do because I was always scared of being how I am now. Some people pick the right thing. I didn't. I didn't realize journalism was wrong for me until it was too late for me to switch. I mean the way most programs work here is that the first few years of classes you take for your major they're all introductory classes and then in your later years you take the real serious classes. Well my last two years is when the classes got very much hands-on and it wasn't studying about journalism anyone, it become DOING journalism and I finally realized that I can't interview people, I am too shy and journalism is something I would be miserable with. By this point it was too late for me to switch and stay at Syracuse longer. At $34,000 a year, I couldn't afford 2-3 more years of that. So my only option was really to just finish it out and get stuck in this situation later, where my degree was useless to me because it's not at all what I wanted to do. It's hard to really know what to study until you start at it, and it's really scary when it doesn't work out.

:hug: I'm so sorry if you feel I've been taking it out on you. It's just that is ALL people talk to me about. After you graduate from college EVERYONE asks you, "So Jessica, what are you going to do now?" and my parents get asked that and they are like, "What are we supposed to tell them?" and I mean, I don't know what to say. It's the most uncomfortable question ever and I have no clue how to answer and I am constantly being told by people "Do this." "Do that." and I don't really need that, you know? All I need is someone to say, "I understand. I went through that. You'll be okay."

After grad all I knew was programming wasnt gonna be my life and I didnt wanna be a banker like the other half of my family. I volunteered everywhere, worked shitty ass jobs except a summer teachin tennis. Then while volunteering on a set I met an editor, learned how to edit a bit, and I was hooked. Went to film school and now I combine my business and film studies as a producer

See it's hard because the things I'm good at do seem to be keeping me in some aspect of retail, but maybe a more corporate aspect. I mean, the things I'm best at in my job at the moment are making things look nice, making the store look pretty, arranging things in a way that the store looks amazing. In journalism the class I was best at was graphics. I was best at designing things. The problem is that I personally am not artistic, but I have an eye for making things aesthetically pleasing.

I have no idea where to go from there, but at least I know a little something. I mean, if I got into the corporate side of retail, somewhere there is someone in an office who decides that in every Mimi Maternity store they are going to hang this shirt next to a certain pair of pants because it looks nice. And I mean it's not very ambitious, but that's the kind of thing I'm good at. :shrug:

I mean, Rice is known for its engineering, but the alumni office is general and there is a searchable database for any industry in any city, and we're an awful lot smaller than Syracuse :lol:. That's really too bad, but it's no big deal that was just something I thought of that might help, to talk to actual Syracuse grads, it's not something necessary to succeeding in life hahaha. Don't worry, it will all come together. You just have to be patient and optimistic and do everything you can and it sounds like you're on that path so just keep going and don't get discouraged:)

Wow, that's really shocking. I mean, Rice is known for its engineering, but the alumni office is general and there is a searchable database for any industry in any city, and we're an awful lot smaller than Syracuse :lol:. That's really too bad, but it's no big deal that was just something I thought of that might help, to talk to actual Syracuse grads, it's not something necessary to succeeding in life hahaha. Don't worry, it will all come together. You just have to be patient and optimistic and do everything you can and it sounds like you're on that path so just keep going and don't get discouraged:)


Well see, Syracuse is very divided by our home schools. Newhouse was my home school so it's like, they take care of that sort of thing. If I had been a psych major, Arts & Sciences would have been my home school and they would have done it. Our big-ness hurts us in that way :p

See it's hard because the things I'm good at do seem to be keeping me in some aspect of retail, but maybe a more corporate aspect. I mean, the things I'm best at in my job at the moment are making things look nice, making the store look pretty, arranging things in a way that the store looks amazing. In journalism the class I was best at was graphics. I was best at designing things. The problem is that I personally am not artistic, but I have an eye for making things aesthetically pleasing.

I have no idea where to go from there, but at least I know a little something. I mean, if I got into the corporate side of retail, somewhere there is someone in an office who decides that in every Mimi Maternity store they are going to hang this shirt next to a certain pair of pants because it looks nice. And I mean it's not very ambitious, but that's the kind of thing I'm good at. :shrug:Have you thought about design school? Business school? Even some night classes at a local community college, in these things you're interested in. If it's something you like doing, who cares what others will think, who cares if you'll make millions of dollars or if it's "presigious" or WHATEVER. The ultimate goal is your happiness (and making enough to live on). So if you have things you like and feel you are good and and could see yourself building a career in, take it and run!

My degree is in Business Prelaw but I decided before I graduated I didn't want to go straight into law school as I needed a break, I'd been in school since I was three. So during my last quarter I applied for a UK work permit through an organization called BUNAC and lived/worked in London for 6 months right after I finished my degree. It was a great experience because I went on a ton of interviews and ended up working for a temp agency so I had assignments at different places. When I came back home I had to live with my parents :eek: so it was horrific the 9 weeks I was unemployed. I got pretty lucky that the job I got had advancement opportunities and the people are nice. My only advice is instead of spending time worrying about things, keep your self busy doing anything - writing cover letters, tweaking your resume, researching employers, take a recreational class, draft a budget, etc.

Also scary about schools are the $$ it would cost, so that would have to come far in the future.Classes at community colleges aren't that expensive, and if you find things you're interested in, not only are you learning more about these things but it's just that one extra thing that goes on your resume that could help you get that better position. The scared thing is what i'm talking about - you have to sort of force yourself to let down those guards and just put yourself out there to do what you want.

The nice thing about going to school is that there are always grants and loans available. No one wants to have debt, but most people do :lol: It's all about the ultimate goal and doing whatever it takes to get to what will make you happy. If you have the mindset that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING will get in your way - not fear, not lack of money, not lack of parental support, not lack of prior knowledge or education, nothing, then you will succeed. These things are hard and we look for anything that will let us stop ourselves from doing it, and thus anything that will stop us from ultimately succeeding. It's hard, no doubt, but that's part of the process, so if thing X really interests you, then you should go after it no matter what. :)

What or who is Leykis? Or maybe I do not want to know;)
He is ok a bit late at the age of 13 but he is enjoying it. He prefers swimming which he is very good at so once school starts back to the swim team. The 9 year old is also taking lessons and does appear to be a bit more skilled. Plus he likes it but once school starts there will be less time. My goal is to get out and play with him more. I have played on the weekends with him but that isn't really playing but more like getting balls to him so can he can practice his strokes. I have also been playing tennis with a neighbor who is really really good and that has been great fun at least for me. She plays everyday and I am sure I don't play well enough for her but at least she humors me.

Leykis aka the professor is a talk show host who is basically a dog who encourages and teaches others how to follow in his footsteps. He's wildly entertaining and his info is pretty dead on.

Never hurts to play with better players, when I was training as a junior I was 14 training with 16,17,18 year olds I dont think I won a practice set in 2-3 years but man it helped when I played guys my age.

It was. It told the story of how England hooligans for the World Cup were banned but there were still drunken louts who had gone and singing distasteful songs and when they got to Stuttgart they started kicking off on the Germans and they started kicking off back and it went off big time.

All of it was filmed by an undercover reporter.

Even fucking Cardiff had a firm over there when they're WELSH. The whole UK has a hooliganism problem.

:scared: seeing reports about such people (no matter from which country) scares me to death... it's such a shame that there are so many people like that. i mean, i saw a documentary about german and polish hooligans who meet up at the border just to beat up each other and such things... (i mean, ok, it's better if they beat up each other instead of other people but still it's such an awful and disgusting thing)

If you go to the website they usually have info about contestant searches. He was lucky because the college tournament was at NC State so all he had to do was just show up somewhere for an audition at the school he goes to. :lol:

The one time I signed up to audition they made me sign up on the website and then they'd give me a call about an audition time, which they never did. I'm sure they have castings in Cincinnati at times ;) If you look up on the schedule when they have one, I'm pretty sure you just go and take the test. One of my friends tried out for kid jeopardy once and you go, take the written test and then they give you a screen test with a mock game of Jeopardy and if you pass everything you're still not guaranteed a spot on the show, but they give you a call if they want you to come on. She passed but they never called her for the show.

I really want to do a casting for Deal or No Deal ;)
