Life... can't live with it OR without it.

So here's the deal. I graduated highschool, went to colleges and had jobs the whole time to help pay my way. I got an associates in the medical field, but upon graduating, my fellow graduates and myself learned that there were essentially no jobs left in our specific discipline for the region we live in. I'd have to travel to Alaska to find work that was relevant. So, not letting that hold me back and knowing I'd need a job to survive, I got into labor. I was promised by my employer that I'd go to the top of the company do to my credentials and work ethic. I moved up to being a head tech and head trainer, but only made it to 10.50 an hour. I had to work day and night which wasn't a problem, but I was constantly promised a promotion just to string me along. I watched as all the other employees quit because our boss (who is a police officer) was a corrupt con artist who would expect you to work 40 hours straight with no overtime. And when confronted on that topic, he'd BS his way out of it. So due to sleep loss and exhaustion after one year of being virtually the only employee, I fell asleep and wrecked my car one night on the way home. Fortunately my mom let me use her car. She contacted her cousin who promised me he could get me a job in hydraulic fracturing (which pays awesome)even though I didn't have a CDL, if I quit my then current job immediately. So I did quit. And I contacted that company and they said my family member hadn't worked there in YEARS... he was just trying to sound like a big shot. Ever since then, every time a door opens, it slams in my face. I always get through the interview, but I've been told that I'm "over qualified" and that despite my hard work history, they still think that I'm a soft hand college boy. So now, I'm forced to go back to school at 28 and start all over. Life? Life sucks.

Why bother. Get stoned and forget about it.

You have your health and your family. You have the option to go back to college. You're obviously educated and intelligent.

The situation you were in did indeed sucks, but your life? No. Things could be far worse.

Enjoy youself. Life isn't a race to get to a certain point by a certain age. Overcome and take pleasure in knowing that you can handle whatever life throws at you.
