    I feel so dismayed ..

    .. I feel like I've wasted my time spending the past 2 years working on a degree in a field that I have no confidence in pursuing for a career. I feel lost .... I graduate in May and I feel defeated.... I'm so afraid to put myself out there and find a good job

    The guy I like ignores me.

    Claims he's too busy. Bull crap. He is always talking to my other friend. The thing is, he was into me but I didn't take up the opportunity. He was so flirty and now I guess he hates me and I will never have a chance so. **** me.
