I wake up almost every morning thinking to myself: 'You are going nowhere. Your life means nothing.' I am currently studying for a MA degree in English Literature, and yet I feel no drive to excel at it because I see nothing positive at the end of it. With rising unemployment, rising costs and massive cuts, there is little opportunity for post-graduates like myself. So what am I to do? It's not like I can even get a low-end job in a coffee shop, as it's become almost impossible to gain employment for even the most menial work, and if you suffer from ongoing depression, it's practically hopeless. I see no way out of my situation. The fact I am single and am still living at home because I can't afford to live away just depresses me more. I feel nothing but helpless, with no light whatsover. I apologize if I sound self-absorbed, I just don't know what to do anymore.
