I am feeling down, depressed and sad.
Basically, I'm seeing all my work colleagues go off to university- their much younger 18/19.
Meanwhile, I've finished university (find out results end of month!)- and at a different stage in my life, my stage is much less interesting and more depressing.
I had a rough time at university, and my interest declined, with stress, along with my mental health. Long story short; I had a few major extensions, managed to finish work in time, but feel I've not done so well.
Anyhow, currently, I'm left applying for jobs in my field, with little pro experience, up against hundreds if not thousands of solidly qualified candidates- with bags more sufficient experience.
Meanwhile, my mates from work are all glad they off to uni- reminds me of myself 4 years ago. Now, I'm at the other end. Stuck in this job, with little experience, trying to get a job before I can move with partner to Manchester (in a rented house).
I dunno what to do; can't get the job without exp, but need exp to get job. Typical catch 22. My parents ain't wealthy, single parented family, works min wage. Not a lot of money, and what money I do have I'm sending to fiancee to help her pay bills. We don't live together. I live at home, she lives away.
