32 years old, no job. Graduated from University last March, still no work. Michigan sucks, highest unemployment in the country. Had to move in with mom. 32 year old man living in his mothers basement, pathetic and sad.
Don't know what to do. I'm broke so I can't leave, but there's just no work out here. Can't even afford gas to put in my car so I don't go anywhere. At least I'm alive and relatively healthy.
I'm not stupid, so why won't anyone hire me? Most of the people I graduated with (most of whom were C and D students) have found work. I studied hard in school and graduated with honors, but apparently that's not what employers are looking for - they just want pretty, young, and stupid girls to run their companies. What bullsh*t.
I hate living here with my mom. It's beyond humiliating. I don't see a real future for me anymore like I did when I was in college. I'm smart, hard-working, and honest. You would think that these are qualities that employers are looking for, I guess you have to be stupid, pretty, dishonest, and egocentric to make it in the world today.
I don't want much. I don't want a million dollars. I just want a good job, a modest income, a modest home, a decent car, and a real life of my own. Instead I'm all alone in my mom's basement. God this sucks. I hear people complaining about being caught up in "the rat race" all the time, but I would GLADLY trade my current situation for "the rat race" in a heartbeat!
I know a lot of people have it much worse than I do, and at the very least I'm thankful for having a roof over my head. But I can't go on like this. I'm a grown man damn it, I can't be dependent like this anymore! I can't stand it, I wake up every day hoping that I'll get lucky. Maybe finally someone will give me a chance. I just don't know what else to do.
