Well, I guess I'm here to just vent because I don't have much else.Here we go, I'm 22 years old, currently enrolled at a community college and will be getting my AA degree in...a week. I am unemployed, and have been for a long time, only work a job here and there with my friend who's a manager for a valet company.I like with my parents still, they pay my shit, school, gas to get to and from, etc. I've tried applying for multiple jobs, but no one ever hires me, so I've just given up. I feel freaking useless and like I'm a waste of space on this earth. I don't know what the hell I want to do with my life, I originally wanted to be a pathologist, but I can't do that much school. I know I'll fail. So I decided to go a different route and go to a tradeschool to be a Radiology Tech, but I'm still missing some pre-reqs, which means I'll be at this community college for another year getting them.And then even still, these programs only take in 10/11 people, and I highly doubt I'll be one of them, since I suck at school.I don't know what to do with my life, and I really honestly don't want to even live anymore. What the fuck should I do
Hi eFsaF. The fact that you want to work is a good thing, and the fact that you are doing some work is also a good thing. Any work, of any sort, is good to show employers that you are not afraid of working. So don't be afraid to do unskilled or semi-skilled jobs while you are waiting for your special skills to be recognised. It's all worthwhile.
Hey, I feel for you bro. If it makes you feel any better I am in a very similar situation as you except a bit worse, which is arguable...you decide. I'm in my late twenties (turning 28 this summer) and still don't have a career. I have exhausted two careers over the past 7 years and still haven't amounted to anything. I also haven't had stable employment for close to a decade of my working life now. I'm a decade out of high school and still have nothing to show for it. I still live at home, still single (I still can't even get a date). As a result of all of the bullshit in my life that I have went through for the past 7 years or so has caused me severe health problems. I suffer from major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder with severe anxiety on a daily basis, panic disorder, as well as insomnia. I developed a sleep disorder as a result of my last job which was extremely traumatic, still traumatized from it and it was straight 12-hour night shifts. I had to take an indefinite leave of absence because of how it was affecting my health, then later was forced to resign from my position and haven't been employed since. I'm almost 28 years old and now I'm currently unable to work due to all the health complications that I have to deal with on a daily basis as a result of the circumstances in my life, which results in me relying on social assistance to get by. Hell, I'm still paying on student loans from a decade ago! It hasn't went down a cent even after paying on it this long. I envy you in a way because you're relatively young and can still continue your education. I actually went back to school for my second career in my mid twenties (I was 24 when I originally went back, was 25 in my second and final year of my program and graduated at age 26) It's been 2 years since I've graduated my from my second and current career and still haven't been able to get a job other than the one that wasn't really in my field and has caused me a great deal of health problems. I can't even get a friggin' interview! I have exhausted two careers as I've already mentioned, am nearing 30 and am a bit too old to go back to school, no offence. Even then I couldn't go back if I wanted to because of my health problems and financial reasons. I'm basically fucked in my life! Talk about a failure to launch and not amounting to anything. Hang in there dude, there's still hope for you. I'm sure you'll end up amounting to something at least by the time you're my age. All the best to you man. Peace!
