Fuck It

I enlisted in the Marine Corps back in 03. On my drive home from Cali to Texas, I flipped my truck (totaling it) and lost everything I owned except clothes (which survived). Family picked me up from the emergency room! Spent the next few weeks getting back on track, new phone, new car, heeled from the wreck, closed on a house. Started classes at a community college during a winter mini. Found a job paying shit and enrolled full time in courses. Boss was a complete asshole, and I quit after 8 months of trying my hardest. Jobless for a month or two until I found another job paying slightly better. For the year contract I had one Saturday off. I was either in classes or at work that entire year. Decided not to work and take 21 hours of classes to finish up quickly. Graduated in August with a business degree. It is now Oct 29, I am officially out of my Marine Corps contract. Since college, now job, living with family, car broke down. I cant fix my car, I cant afford anything. Trying to get a job? Cant find a job that pays even the same as my job prior to my degree. I'm pretty sure I cant get hired from stereotypes about Marines. True, some people would be eager to hire a Marine. To do manual labor, not business. Hiring managers thank me for my service but don't hire. So in all. I fucked my life over by getting out of the military. Why do people thank veterans anyways? For continuing our nations dependence on oil? Or the fact I have put my self several years back. I now compete against other recent graduates, in a market which is not hiring. On top of that I have to miss out on opportunities because ridiculous stereotypes about veterans. What makes it bad luck? I am now 28 years old, completely in debt, have no transportation, no income, live with my sister,and cant pursue my career. I find a company that wants me to join their leadership program...in July. My life inst so bad, try finding a girl that is interested in a jobless,car-less, homeless, broke ass that can't even afford a date to McDonalds. I also still owe my school $2400, not sure what I will do when I need to prove my education to an employer. Its Halloween weekend and I cant even afford a costume. Christmas is around the corner, no presents from your broke ass Uncle! People might think I should just get any job in the mean time. Ya, I put myself in debt to work for nothing! So in regards, I have went from pretty good life, pursued a degree to nothing. Alright Class 2011!!!
