Ivy League Loser

Posted by Waste at January 29, 2012
Tags: 2012 January  Money  Unemployment

I'm an Ivy League graduate who can't even get a job as a cashier. I have been unemployed for almost four years. My electricity was recently turned off. I don't have furniture in my home. Most weeks I do not know if I will be able to eat.

I have no direction or skills. My friends and family are also broke and unsuccessful. There's not an individual I can turn to for assistance.

I've let myself down and I don't know how to fix it. The "potential" that people said I had as a child has amounted to nothing.

I'm angry, disgusted and hopeless.

I can't find a job either. Be happy you have your health that's the most valuable thing of all. Keep at it and don't give up!

I am homeless without the generousity of friends' couches, I have so much student debt its ridiculouse. I should have a decent home with what I owe to Sallie Mae and with all the loan industry bitches out there who got bailed out when the houseing bubble busted, who should care about all the astronomical debt students are in. We are products of the greedy baby boomers of the 80's. They bitch that the Millennial generation is self entitled, but who raised them> and the reality is, there is only entitlement in money.
if it werent for the greedy money hungry capitalists, maybe we would have proper health care and education for all Americans, but no instead we have the internet boom and bust and the housing and mortgage fiasco. all greedy money hungry. who suffers, the young, the poor, the destitute> wow, ok i will get off the saop box

in any case I have 2 degrees and 10 years of collage, but havent had a job for two years. I cant keep going to school anymore, but my outlook for work is foggy. My brain is foggy and weighs heavy with the surmounting debt and phone calls from many creditors who can't get blood from a turnip. I feel let down, and hopeless too.

Im sorry about your situation. Alot of people have it bad right now. Myself included. I am almost 30 years old and I had to move back with my mom and endure her addictive and disgustingly destructive behavior. All thanks to the economy. The economic situation is absolute shit.

Even with all my problems right now, I read stories on this website and I really wish I had the ability to help people on here.

Education is worthless, welcome to the real world you dumb fuck.

If you went to ivy league someone footed the bill, or you at least had advantages that other's didn't have. If nothing else you have advantages that others don't have now. Grow up and get over yourself.

feel better now? now that you've kicked someone when they're down is your life any better?

Im sorry to hear about all the hardships you've endured. Its not over, heres some good news.

God uses the weak, the powerless, the hurt, the poor, and the lonely in GREAT ways. Heres a illustration: A potter will take a helpless, lifeless lump of clay and then knead it and squeeze it until it's soft and pliable. And then when he gets it just right, he takes that piece of clay and he does something called throwing, where he places the clay on a spinning table.
As that clay is placed upon that turning wheel, the potter's hands then begin to pressure the clay and work it until he makes something beautiful out of that old ugly piece of clay.

God is the true master craftsman. He is a potter who is making something beautiful out of every life. He will take the old ugly mistakes and sins and make them into something completely new!

When you truly know God, you can live victoriously! So whatever the ugliness is in your life, be assured that through the blood of Christ, God molds you and makes you into something beautiful! Many people can testify to how God has changed them. Ive never heard of anyone regretting putting their faith in jesus.

Are you saved? God can turn the worst of situations into good! Joeseph was left for dead and put into slavery by his brothers, he was abandonded, afraid, probably thought his life was over. But he trusted God, he then eventually became second in command of Egypt. Without looking into the future it can be hard to be optimistic. If you put your faith with jesus he wont abandon you, he will love you and give you a new life. All you have to do is accept jesus as your lord and savior and ask for forgiveness of your sin, he will wash away all your sin (everyone has sin, i'm not judging you by what I say).

Jesus knows your pain, because he went through all the different pains possible when he was tortured and then nailed to a cross. He layed down his life for me and you, so that we can have eternal life in heaven. All we have to do is accept him as our lord and savior and ask for forgiveness for our sin. Jesus loves you with love that cant be compared, he loves you so much that he died for you. He can change you. He changes people every single day. You can say that one of his job descriptions is "Life Changer". He knows your trouble, he cares for you, and he wants you to know him. He will comfort us when there seems to be no comfort available. He is our friend when everyone else seems to not care, he provides for us when we are without, and he gives us strength when we are weak. He washes away all our sin when we have lived sinfilled lives. He is offering the gift of everlasting life in heaven free of charge, its your choice whether you accept his offer.

That's what you get for studying some bullshit degree... Also, if you electricity got caught off... How are you posting online?

hfm818 It's exhausting to find educated people on this matter, but you sound like you already know what you're speaking about! Thanks
