You just had it too good for too long and probably deserve to suffer. If you had it truly bad, you could file for chapter 7 bankruptcy and cite the Brunner decision and absolve it. Yes federal loans count. Sounds to me like you're the usual woe is me midwit that doesn't see debt as a spook. Repayment agreements can be as low as $10 a month which in the course of 100 years is going to be less than what you owe. Guess what happens when you die? Woosh. It vanishes. Sounds like you have a nice little inheritance or muh Roth IRA or some gift from grandma or grandpa and have 20k in the bank. You deserve no pity. Hopefully I am wrong and you can take advantage of especially bankruptcy but this pissing contents of muh debt usually is from neurotic petite bourgeoisie types who have it very good in the first place.

You guys are young, here's a piece of advice that would have saved me: maintain a backup plan. As in: actively keeping it up to date.
Keep a list of all apartments you can afford in your vicinity (check availability for the upcoming month, e.g. if they require 20 days notice they will know 20 days ahead). If you had to move suddenly, do you have a stash of cash, or at least know someone with a truck/trailer?
Make "friends" (in a shallow way) in your neighborhood and at work. These are your go-to for when you suddenly lose work or your living situation goes south.

Little pains will save you from real pains.

Man even though I'm 23 I joined the military, so I don't have the freedom that you assumed I have. That being said I have traveled(thank God for crypto); I've seen Western and parts of Central Europe, and I've seen parts of Latin America; I've also been blessed with being from a more, "mulitcultural," part of the U.S. I guess my best bet is to use the GI Bill when I get out for a post-bacc/MA and/or to claim Euro citizenship and fuck off to there for a bit, or maybe to join the Peace Corps. My entire life I've had delusions of grandeur thinking I'd amount to something great and be remembered for centuries, or even millennia to come. All I can do is live, try to create, and hope I amount to something.

Anon, focus on your studies. Don't party away uni like I did, but don't be a total virgin either. Find the balance in life, it's there. I have so many regrets, but no matter what I'd have regrets. If anyone needs help please let me know. I'm here. We're united by autism and I have a soft spot in my heart for you.

Amazing. I used to have extreme anxiety, and was in a constant state of panic. Then I moved in with my gf, whom I am currently living with. We wake up early, have coffee, read all day, and in the evening we make a pretty elaborate dinner. Life is, quite honestly, amazing. The best it's ever been.

I'm 22 and have considered the military for a while. Mostly for the free education and to hopefully learn more about strategic co ordination and supply chain organization. Is it worth it for these things? Mostly learning about supply chains in a military aspect seems very interesting to me.

I did 12 years.

My advice? You go so many benefits that trying to learn a trade in the military is pointless. Civilian certifications don't recognize military achievement, at least in the vast majority of cases.

If you join, join to do military shit. Be infantry, or artillery, or a medic. Don't pick some lame desk job.

No one gives a shit about someone who pushed pencils. You'll spend the rest of your life having to explain away why you didn't do army shit while you were in the army or whatever. Seen it happen to a few of my friends. It's sad.

Besides, books from pipehitters sell better. No one ever wanted to know the perspective of a supply specialist.

It's over for me, just when things got better and I could enjoy life, I can't stop having obsessive thoughts about dying and how I wish I had more control over this world, I don't think I'll last more than 2 years unless I get a sign from God or something to make me stop beliving in death.

It's surreal to still be doing classwork in all of this. I can't stand online classes- work that took me a few hours now takes me all day. Some of my professors are clearly depressed. One asked for us to turn our cameras on if we had them, not for attendance, but to see someone other than himself or his dog.
