    Okies. Well i've just turned 18. i dropped out of school at the start of year 10. and have been working at a fast food resturant ever since for the past three years as a casual. And have been in a relationship with my bf for two years. And i'm currently 5,000 in debt. And i've had the worst year ever! I spent 3,000 on a car so i could get my lisence, it ran for a week then the whole top end of the car blew up. Now it's worth absoutley nothing.

    Recently i've applied at some jobs for the first time... However, nothing! Although i'm not suprised, i'm starting to get really scared that i'll be stuck at my current job forever. And my boyfriend finished all his high school and went onto buy his own house. So i feel completely inadequit by his success.

    So what should i do? I feel so old now and like i've accomplished nothing, i'm in the worst shape of my life and so unhealthy and afraid my boyfriend will leave me one day. I'm just pathetic, and everyone else is going to schoolies celebrating their graduation and what not... And I feel like i'm gonna be stuck like this forever. What can i do? Am i too old to go back to school? Or should i just try look harder for a full time job? My question is, what happens if im 40... With a home loan and such with the same full time job, and i get fired or something, i won't get hired anywhere else because I have no qualifications and im so old. However i don't feel i can go back to school because i'm in so much fucking debt! Please help... What should i do? What are my options!?!?!?

    Whatever you do go back to school. If you have any family or relatives who can help you financially, maybe a low interest loan so you can pay off the higher interest loans, go to them. Put any pride aside. Once you come up with a plan, you can start feeling better about yourself.

    Are you 18 or 40?
    I'm not sure what resources are available to you down under, but I would start with walking into your local community college and ask to see a counselor.

    Buddy you've got to pick yourself up and quit feeling sorry for yourself. The first thing is to get your self a highschool diploma. Find out how you can do night courses and see if you can get any sort of financial aid on top of that. If your bf is caring he'll help you out in any way he can.

    Remember this is the first step and you gotta do it.

    Best of luck mate

    Okies, you've started one topic after another that only needs a chorus of violins in each one. You're 18 and you're 40.


    Apologies, but I can't take your posts seriously.

    You are confusing me with your age discrepancy , as you said you are 18 years old , and your profile shows 40 .. But the fact ,you are mentionning in your thread you quit school at the beginning of 2010 , i am going to base my answer on the assessment you are 18 ....icon_confused.gif


    18 is very young ....icon_smile.gif
    Stop complaining , go back to school and graduate .. It will open plenty of new options for you to choose from ....
    Don't forget , they are a lot of 40 and 50 years old , that have to start all over again , due to a lay off , and cannot find an another job in the same field .
    I dont intent to be mean to you , but sometimes a good kick in the ass wakes you up ....icon_smile.gif
