Considering dropping out of family holiday? Watch

    So a few months ago my family planned a holiday for my parent's 20th wedding anniversary. I agreed to go but I now realise this decision was a mistake. My parents refused to let me get a job during term time (which I strongly contested to no avail.) and since my exams ended on 3rd June my parents have been nagging me non stop to get a job. I've applied to at least ten jobs so far and heard absolutely nothing. I'm stressed out and have almost no cash for uni and so am in dire straights right now.

    It's going to be near impossible for me to find employment if I'm going away for almost three weeks on July 10th. I realise how much of a mistake I made and how I didn't realise what an error this was. I don't even get on with my family that well at all and our relationship has deteriorated severely over the past few months alone. I naively thought time together could solve any relationship problems but we are constantly fighting and I'm now dreading the holiday. My fourteen year old brother and I cannot even bear to be in the same room as each other and I've absolutely no idea how I will cope for two and a half weeks.

    I'm sorely tempted to drop out but I've no idea how to approach it with them. Does anyone have any experience of this sort of thing and have any idea how much money we could potentially lose? I have money in my account specifically for emergencies which I am willing to use to pay any extra expenses and I want to fully focus on finding a job. My friends are all staying here too and honestly? Id much rather stay here and be productive rather than go abroad and do nothing for weeks on end :/

    Any advice on how to deal with this mess is very much appreciated
