I've spent more time on applications and interviews than I did in the first 2 weeks I've been living here. Im thinking about prostitution. I've hated all the retail jobs and food service ones I've had thus far. All they teach me is misery. My boss is a **** and so is his assistant managers. He's constantly yelling at us instead of telling us to do something. Some of the coworkers are okay, but at this point being 31 and stuck in a job like this isn't fun. I work hard, but am getting bored with being unable to use any of my education. I truly realize how and why it's so important. I'm tired of fighting with my parents and know that my life is flying way too fast. I tend to see the days pass by holding on to nothing but my anxious tendencies and my tears that come with the disappointment they promise me. I find myself sneaking alcohol into my insulated lunch bag all the time and drink it before my shift, it's the only thing that keeps me sane and numb my thoughts on that that I'm battling bad allergies.

Yeah, I know, but at the same time though managers are underpaid and stressed they shouldn't take it out on us. I got lectured by my mom about the interview and it seems as nothing has changed. Prostitution wouldn't make things better being able to finish school would instead. My mom told me you have to be acquainted with this city get a job. This is what I got for sending out 100 + applications in the first 2 weeks. Too many lies from them that I get to finish a certificate and get a job as a phlebotomist this semester. It would help tremendously with my career plan. Although I have been through a certificate program, it was badly run and poorly managed and located in the ghetto of Houston. This was when I was 18. I never got employed. I've had a lot of these fast food jobs, they end you up pretty miserable. It's too late, I already have a fast food job. I'm going to finish my associates in nursing. This way I don't have to pray, or go broke for 6 months, then I pay my way through my bachelors myself. If it works out. No one is helping and my mental status is getting uneasy. I don't understand the words be grateful you have a job and the torture goes on and on and on and on and on. A resume with 15 jobs. A few of them are internships.

Oh man, sounds rough, but I really wish you found an alternative method for dealing with work, drinking is only a temporary fix and it could lead to you wanting more and more with time. I know how much minimum wage jobs suck, nothing got to transfer to a university faster than working in fast food while attending community college. It is incredibly soul sucking, have a job here but lordy is it starting to get to me again. The way I put it was, I need to finish college and work hard because this cannot be my life forever. However, graduating has been stressing too since I don't even know if a degree will actually land me a job. I am going to say that nursing is an excellent profession, stressful, but I believe is more rewarding. Hang in there, you can do this, put up with the crap now so that you don't have to for the rest of your life later.

PS. 31, dude/dudette, you're still super young! Breath and I hope things get better.

First off 31 isn't still super young. It means that you're just SOL with competition in the job world. I'm learning nothing it's mundane and I don't want to serve picky ****holes the rest of my life. This is super stressful I'm sick of getting looked over. No one is comforting. I'm suffering such bad allergies at this point which was making my life even worse with my situation. I spent a good bit of time with updating my health insurance on the marketplace Obamacare to get my speciality visit covered and go see an allergist. I hate Brought being put in this world where you're parents never took care of you. My dad made a deal that I wasn't friendly with sister since she's a doctor, but she's not an allergist that obviously didn't make me feel better. I'm 31 and can't do this anymore because it's taking too Long and no one has helped me get through life the way they intended to. No love was received and no wonder I am stuck. It's the principles that count. I try to work hard, but need more in my life to really move up and be an adult. My boss is screwing me out of hours and continually lies to me to top that off my allergies for this fall are bad. I'm so tired of fighting with my parents about what I really want. There are no jobs.
