    Hey guys, seriously I don't like having to do this but I am asking for help.

    I'm 18, going nowhere in life, just got fired, my parents are breaking up, no degrees nothing while I'm smart af. I'm just done.
    The only thing keeping me from dropping everything and get out is a dream. This dream is to get back into school and finish my degree, after that become most successful person I can be.
    But the way it looks now, I will never be able to do that on my own.

    I am 2k in debt and have no clue on what to do next, I don't even have a future right now.

    I am asking for help, anyone please help me.
    If I were to make at least 10 euros a day I could continue with life and get back into school, that's the only thing that counts for me atm.

    I have next to no investment money, maybe 100 euros max and those really need to count.
    Only skills I have are graphic editing and building pcs/general IT knowledge. I'm willing to do a lot even if it means I have to get out there and lie / pretend to be someone I'm not to get myself a little further ahead.

    I have been job searching in the rain all day, nothing. And even if I were to find one, I would earn no more then 600 a month and that is working 40hours a week, which leaves no time for school.

    If there is anyone, really anyone willing to help a guy out then please help me.

    "you are only 18, go back to school" no money
    "you are only 18, you still live with your parents" they have no money, and they are breaking up
    "you are only 18, you still got your life ahead of you" A life of what? Working so I can't go to school? Or school, which I can't pay and neither can my parents.
    "you are only 18, you have so many options" Name one besides coming up with a way to make enough money for school, which doesn't involve working between 7am and 5pm and which leaves time to study.
    "you are only 18" That's cool and all, but I feel like I'm a fucking 30 year old. I never ever had time to do something fun and my dreams are about to end due to reality.

    Seriously for now I'd advise forgetting school and focusing on getting yourself stable.

    Do the best you can to get a normal job so you've got a consistent income then work on IM in your spare time.

    Get yourself in a decent financial situation then consider school.

    Alternatively, is there any way you can get your education for free eg. scholarships?

    What country are you in and what/where are you wanting to study?

    Good luck!

    School ... School ... Dreams ...

    If you want this, earn it. If it doesn't all work out the way you wanted, that's life.

    from Holland.

    Going to try to learn some more SEO and then sell services or something alike.

    And it's very easy to say: " if you want this, earn it. If it doesn't all work out the way you wanted, that's life. "
    Well f*** life, people always give me the impression they are bound to these rules, rules of life.
    "Ah yeah such is life" I hear that way too much, I'm not going to let my dreams go to waste just because " that's life ".

    " that's life " is an excuse that has no meaning for me, zero.
    Doing something in/with it on the other hand means everything.

    Lol you think you have it bad OP? At 18 i was kicked out of my house, 6 grand in debt, and on the run from big time drug dealer. But i knuckled down, worked hard, and paid the money back and all that is a distant memory now. Moral of the story - you're not gonna get away from the situation if you don't tackle it. Not that it's that big a deal anyway.. there's plenty of people worse of than you.

    I was homeless at 18. No money, no job, no car. Didnt have time for dreams. If you're able to post here, you are way better off than I was back then.

    I didnt consider any opportunity to make a dollar to be beneath me, or not worth my time.

    Put dreams out of your head for now and focus on goals. First goal should be whatever it takes to improve your situation you are currently in... meaning an income of some sort, even if it's cleaning floors or something like that.

    And obviously you are still unhappy otherwise you wouldn't be comparing yourself to others to make sure "YOU HAVE HAD IT SO MUCH WORSE".
    Everyone is different, you might be telling yourself you are happy with the paths you have chosen, I am not.

    I won't be happy until I reach my goals and you telling me you have had it so much worse isn't going to change my mind.

    ITT: OP tries to milk money from BHW members who still have sympathy left for people on the internet.

    Get a job, work your ass off, life isn't about hand-outs. I hate these posts, it makes me fucking sick.

    You seem to notice a difference between dreams and goals, I don't.
    My goals are my dreams and vice versa and that does mean I am willing to do a lot as mentioned in my OP.
    Yes even if it is cleaning floors, but there no jobs for me to take.

    There are always jobs, no matter what you say or do, there's always going to be work available. It may not be what you want, it may not be the pay you want, but there's always a way.

    You literally just came on here asking people to give you money daily, "investing" it seems highly unlikely. Even if you were to invest it, how would you know what to do with it if you can't even manage $10/day?

    Just saying.
