Have you ever had that feeling when something bad happens, then everything else seems to go wrong as well? This is exactly what is happening to me at the moment.

It all started at the end of last month, when my contract ended. I thought I had time to find a job I like, but it seems as if I am about to become homeless. I live in a really small town, so it is quite impossible to find a job you actually like. At the moment they are mostly looking for truck drivers. I don't even have a driver's license. But what concerns me the most is, that I'm either underqualified or overqualified. I have applied to many jobs, but haven't even gotten a response. Not even a negative one. I am quite educated. I have spent most of my life at school. And what for? Nobody hires me because I don't have enough job experience. Now tell me, how am I supposed the get experience if they don't even give me the chance to start somewhere? 

And my personal life seems to go downhill as well. But it is not important at the moment, when there's a great chance of being homeless next month. I have always put school and work before my personal life, and what for? Maybe I should have had a kid at 16, married a rich guy and everything would have been perfect? Probably not, because I am too independent and would have probably killed myself at some point.

And then our goverment says that youth unemployment is a big problem. Well, of course it is if you are setting impossible standards for us. 

I honestly do not know how I am going to pay my bills next month. If somebody here has any work available, hire me. I am not a complete idiot, just desperate. Please.
