I’m officially depressed. Lost my job last month, family is aware of my situation and doesn’t care to reach out. I’m living out of my car to cut back. I haven’t landed ONE offer and am considering waitressing. I’m noticing I go to bed around 9/10, and wake up anywhere from 6:30-8:00 (this is a lot).
