I fucking HATE this motherfucking recession. I have a shitty little house that I wouldn't be able to sell or rent if my life depended on it, I make approximately $120 a week, and have to support myself (along with my house, and all the fucking bills that go along with it) on this piddly little amount. I can't get a fucking job because, despite the fact that I am well accomplished and pretty fucking intelligent (despite all the casual profanity) I can't get hired at the most basic fucking places (i.e. fast food, retail, etc.) because I look like shit on paper, mainly due to the fact that I have lived in poverty my entire fucking life and couldn't afford to finish college (not even a fucking associate's degree.) So basically the one thing I'm fucking skilled at is massage and the only place that would hire me is a chiropractic office that is paying me less than 50% of what a massage therapist should earn per massage. So basically I have to eat their shit sandwich and smile and say "please sir, can I have some more?" Because I can't get anyone else to fucking hire me. I'm smart and skilled but that means shit when a phD is taking your job as a cashier at the local liquor store because there aren't any other fucking jobs available. I should be happy because I have a roof over my head, but in reality, I am very close to losing said roof.

This recession is worst than the "great depression" and there is no aid or relief in sight. It is INSANE.

This has changed my views entirely, because more often than not I think lower income people have no ambition. I sincerely apologize for thinking this to you and many others, and I pray (though not religious) that things get better for you!

Can you get someone to share that place with you?

You're intelligent. You at least went to college, even if you didn't finish it, didn't you? Most middle class families in America can't afford to send their kids to college nowadays, due to this new developing fukin great depression. I'm not sure why you cant find a good job that suits you.

What you can do is find out what you like to do. What area do you find interesting? What area of subjects do you excel in (besides massaging.) If you're not sure, there are resources online that you can find. Then you can apply for some of the jobs tht you can find. Just dont give up! Dont stop. You'll find a way. ;)

Btw it may seem suprising but I'm only a middle schooler that wrote this!! See, anyon can help. :)
