Guys I'm a 25 year old college graduate and I work part time at Target. I also substitute teach but I work too much at Target to be able to sub as much as I'd like. So basically, a retail job that pays $8.75/hour is precluding me from working at a far more career-orientated job for which I would be making about $12/hour.

I feel kind of trapped. Like, no matter what I do or how hard I try I'll probably just end up staying at Target because what else am I gonna do? I'm not really qualified for much else and lord knows I'm not really good at anything else.

I've been thinking a lot about whether or not I'm actually good at anything lately and the more I think about it the more I realize that I'm OK at some stuff, kinda good at other stuff and really good at a few things. But the things I'm really good at are useless skills for which there is literally zero market. I take history classes but I don't actually KNOW anything about history and it makes me feel fucking pathetic.

Basically I've majored in being a shitty artist, being a shitty actor, and being a shitty historian. I got good grades but I didn't actually get good at DOING anything.

And it doesn't help when all my friends on facebook are gushing about their awesome jobs and new houses and how SUPER NEAT THEIR LIVES ARE.

Maybe I'm bitter but fuck you you'd be bitter too.

Could be much worse. You could still be paying back thousands in debt and having your dad pay your rent. Oh, and be actually unemployed. And heck, you have Reeny!
the grass is always greener - i'd love to have what you & reenie have

also, the more ppl gush about awesomeness via facebook is usually the more they're trying to compensate for something.
