Hey B. D. feel free to ignore this cause I'm only 23 (24 in july) but it sucks to see you're in a shitty mood. Here's basically what my life is like right now:
I graduated college last year with an English Degree, knowing fully what I was getting into. A couple months in I kinda freaked out but slowly have been getting my stuff together. In June i was diagnosed with GAD (generalized Anxiety Disorder) and OCD. I've been on meds for those since July. They've certainly helped a lot.
I'm currently working at a good old dying retail store part time as a way to barely scrape by, although I've had 3 full time interviews since then and waiting for something to stick. What i do when I'm not working is what I consider really important though. I also live in my college town (Bellingham, Washington) which seems sorta similar to where you live (although its having a housing crisis yeee yee).
I volunteer as an office support member for a non-profit on Wednesday mornings. The program I work with helps find volunteers to help eldery/disabled people go grocery shopping and clean there homes and stuff like that. I also volunteer at my local arthouse theater which pays me in passes which really cheers me up, made a lot of friends there. You live in a college town, so there must be a theater right? try hanging out there.
I also just started working with a program called Access ID which helps people who've lost access to their IDs get one so they can get jobs and temporary housing and stuff like that. It's a little tough but very rewarding.
I'm currently researching grad schools in the netherlands cause its really cheap there and I wanna do something exciting with my life. Currently looking at religous studies, interfaith relations and social outreach programs. I've made it my goal to live there by fall of 2019 or so. I've been learning dutch 30 minutes a day which also keeps me busy.
Oh and not to be too personal or sound like a creepy missionary but I do also do a lot of stuff for my church, but only cause its a really liberal social outreach oriented one that doesn't really bug people too much for what the belive in. I'm aware an Episcopal church in a college town isn't a good indicator of organized religion in america as a whole. This isn't me telling you to find jesus or something I could care less really what you belive in in a spirtual sense, but I advise you to try finding some sort of larger community.
I close by saying look into volunteer oppertunities and just see who you meet from there. It's never too late B. D. i know pleanty of people who went back to school at your age. I'm sure you'll find something if you just try hard enough.
Also really look into meds.
