OP, where is your writing published? You said it's an online music magazine. Which one? May I read it?

Nappy has actually been very open about personal matters that many would struggle with sharing publicly. For that she should absolutely be commended.

And while some of her posts were very negative about attending school, she has seemed more open to the idea recently.

She has also seemingly taken advice about increasing the amount of applications she's submitted as well.

And I can understand many of her frustrations. It's a classic Catch 22. It's difficult to get hired without work experience...

We don't know the extent of her disabilities, nor is it any of our business.

But, Nappy, you do keep posting similar types of threads, and you seem to get very upset with people that are trying to help you. So, the courtesy needs to extend in both directions. I continue to respond to you, even though you've been very rude to me personally, because if you were my child, I would want someone to still try and help you, and treat you with dignity.

The gentleman that has pointed out a few issues with your writing was providing constructive criticism. This is the type of feedback you'd receive from an instructor, or even in a writing group. If you were working for a publication that paid you, you would be expected to be able to proofread your own work, and submit very clean articles. Just like someone writing for the NY Times, would be expected to be more polished than someone writing for a small, free, local paper.

Don't try and turn all of us into the enemy. Many of us are empathetic.

I'm sure I'm not alone in saying "Then get off City Data and do it."

Exactly.

Which brings me to the next issue, your attitude.

I don't know how you present yourself when you go to fill out applications but your entire presentation, including your attitude, should be positive, friendly and enthusiastic. You should be dressed neatly and nicely, you should seem warm and friendly, like someone people would like to be greeted by and around and you should seem thankful and gracious.

All characteristics you really don't display here. In all the helpful advice we have thrown you, I have yet to see you say "Thank you" or "I really appreciate your thoughts or advice". You come here complaining and when advice is given, you are snarky, dismissive and completely unappreciative.

So I really feel there is not much more anyone on this board can do for you. Even if the advice isn't something that would work for you, a simple "thank you" would be considerate. All these people have taken time out to try and help you. And you really don't seem to care.

So why should we continue?
