Job hunting is stressful. I thought that college was hard, but being a college graduate and not being able to find a job is harder.
I’ve applied to what feels like billions of jobs online, written and rewritten about a hundred cover letters, and revised my resume around fifty times. And still, I can’t find a job.
When you go through school your entire life, you get taught to “go to college so you can get a good job.” Well, I went to college and I’ve been graduated for 3 months now, and still haven’t been able to find a job.
I think that college is a great concept, however, I think it’s completely overpriced ($50,00 for 4 years?!? Get real!) and not completely necessary. For example, I didn’t get a teaching degree, I’m a Public Relations major, but I’m substitute teaching right now. I don’t know if you know this, but you don’t get any training to be a substitute teacher and you don’t have to have a teaching degree, just 60 hours of college credit. I learned by walking into a classroom unprepared and teaching myself how to teach. And you know what? I’m doing just fine.
Anyway, like I said, I have my degree and I’m still searching for a job. I know an opportunity will arrive when it’s supposed to, but waiting is difficult.
To say the least, it’s a tad bit stressful.
So, to calm myself, I bake and bake and bake, which is why I get to share these brownies with you today. So, I guess not being able to find a job is all that bad.
This perfect brownie recipe is adapted from The Black Apple. Good luck trying not to eat all of the frosting before putting it on the brownies. Also, I had some leftover cake mix, so I mixed about 1/4 cup cake mix with 3 tablespoons butter and swirled it into the top of the brownies.
- 1 stick butter (8 tbsp)
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- ¾ cup clour
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup cake mix of your choice
- Preheat Oven to 350.
- Melt butter in pot over stove.
- Remove butter from heat, let cool about a minute, then add sugars and mix well.
- Add eggs, flour, cocoa powder, salt, and vanilla, and mix well.
- Line and grease an 8×8 inch baking dish and pour in batter.
- Bake 20-25 minutes. If a toothpick comes out clean, it’s finished.
- While cooling, make the frosting:
- In a mixer, beat the butter and vanilla until fluffy. Slowly add in the confectioners’ sugar and then the cake mix until fully incorporated and fluffy.
- Frost cooled brownies and enjoy.
