    I recently graduated from university with a first class honours degree and I decided to treat myself by going abroad this summer - which I did.

    I returned back from holiday two weeks ago and realized that most of the top IT companies and IT grad roles from such companies have all been taken and full up. I somewhat regret this but at the same time I feel the holiday made me a better person who now does not worry as much and does not have much depression.

    The thing is, all my uni friends have ignored me just like that and now I have no friends whatsoever. I help my parents run their business and I feel embarrassed. All I hear is negativity from my parents and their friends about how when they were my age they worked hard and what not. It is all true but I don't want to work somewhere where I am underpaid or somewhere where I can't progress in life. My holiday taught me that life is definitively too short.

    Now that I have no friends, no job and no real support (like a mentor or someone who can guide me) - I feel that I have wasted my life. Uni was a real waste, I got a degree by having a lack of a social life and I never really learnt much.

    Learning is never a waste of time sometimes you have to take a lesser job than you want and wait for your opportunity, be patient and your time will come, respect your parents and never give up your dreams
