I would call having to try very hard "struggling," but sure, semantics.
There are clearly two interpretations of "I try VERY hard never to talk about post-grad employment at school."
Interpretation 1: Employment is not something I particularly want to discuss, but when the subject does come up, I am very careful about how I discuss it because I don't know the position that other people in are.
Interpretation 2: I constantly want to discuss my employment status and have to hold myself back.
You are clearly choosing interpretation 2 over 1, even though I never meant it that way, and it is projection on your part onto me.
Nice try though.
