I feel as if i haven't accomplished at damn thing at the age of 27. I went to college and got a BA degree in criminal justice/sociology. It took me a longer time to finish because I moved to a different state, work etc. Now i work in a max security prison making a whopping 17 shitty dollars per hour. I have a student loan, a car payment, insurance etc. After i pay everything i dont have enough to afford a house, apartment or any means on living on my own. Im stuck at my parents house and I am lost on what to do, where to go to make more more and have financial security. I do have a small side auto detailing business I make some extra money on, and try to live very conservative. I just feel very pathetic and as if im never going to get ahead no matter how hard I try. I have been looking for better paying jobs, but I havent gotten any callbacks or responses for my resume posted on job websites. My dream job was to become a police officer, but getting into the department is so hard.
