Don't feel too bad. Enjoy your freedom while you can. I'm 20 and still looking for a job, desperately. The only skills I have is painting houses (only 1 house, including mine) & sanding 8+ months and I'm darn good now, but finding a job is not easy when you lack experience and skills, then you have to settle for either general labor and fast food, which I refuse to ever do.
sorry for getting this off topic but i have to address this. how do you think you will ever develope expericnce and skills when you aren't willing to start out at the low end?
there is nothing wrong with fast food or general labor. i know many people, including myself who started out at the bottom and worked up. you learn, you get better, you advance within the co. or you find a better job based upon your skills. summer time is the best time of year to go job hunting. if you can't land a job now it won't get any better.
there's an old saying, "You gotta have a job to get a job." find something that you slightly like and look for something else. employers like a job history.
