Is life going to be this horrible forever?

I am 22 years old as of Oct 4th. I moved to GA to attend the Art Institute of Atlanta. My family is in Alabama.

I am now 100k in debt to this school. My credit is ruined, and I cannot find a job. I graduate December 17th.

I lost my job in August. I've been looking for a new job since. I am now 3 months behind in rent.

I got an eviction notice. I have 5 days to find about $2000 or I am going to be evicted.

This means I have to quit school and move back to AL.

My parents can't help. My credit is ruined and I can't get a loan. I have already pawned my car and am still paying on it. I have no money to my name. I can't find a job. I am depressed.

Is life forever like this? I don't want to live if this is what life is going to be like.

I can't pay my bills. everything is in disconnect notice. I'm so overwhelmed with everything. I don't know what to do, where to go, or how to pay my bills. I am $5000 in debt to bills incl rent.

Why can't I find a job? All I want is a job. I want to work. I want a job. I want money. I want to be able to pay my bills and live. I'm so depressed.

You are going to quit school 2 months before you graduate? Couldn't you hold on just a little longer? How much would it take you to tide you over for that long?

Don't worry about your credit - you won't be looking to buy a home anytime soon, and you're probably better off without a credit card. You shouldn't have to start paying your student loans for a while, but when you do, if you can't, just default. You'll pay a huge penalty for that eventually (I paid at least 25%), but at least you won't have to pay until you're ready.

The economy should slowly improve over the next couple of years, but this may not translate into much job creation (another "jobless recovery"). I haven't heard any politician propose anything that will make this better, and when the Republicans take over Congress in January it will get worse. But at least you can afford to take any job; it's not like you're in your 40's with a mortgage and family to feed.
