I'm still in my 20s!

Today I had my first face-to-face job interview in my 6-months of unemployment. I think it went okay. I was one out of 6 in total they had invited to do an interview (out of 31 applicants), so even if I don't get the job, I managed to get that far.

I think I'm too hard on myself sometimes... I found I was hitting myself on the head (not literally) on my way home from the interview. I finished my education months ago and it feels like I should be way into my first job already. There's a ladder to advance and I'm not getting any younger! If I don't get this job, what then??

But the fact is that I'm still only in my 20s (late 20s, but, you know still 20s). I have a Master's degree from a Danish university. That's not nothing. Maybe I haven't found a job yet, but I have grown an enormous amount in just the past 5 years. For the past 3, I've been sprinting in the personal growth track.
It's okay if I end up dicking around for another 6 months. Because I know I will do well when I find the right place. I have SO much to give. And I'm still relatively young. I'm 27. Sure Einstein published the Annus mirabilis papers when he was 26, but I think it's a bit unfair to compare myself to Ein-freacking-stein.

I should have some time left to achieve something.
