First job interview tomorrow with Coles ( Supermarket in Australia )
I do realize that it's not the best job in the world, nor the most favored but it's a job and I'm not a rich-fag, money is money and a job is a job.
I'm 18 and secured an interview for tomorrow morning and I'm pretty sure it's a one on one ordeal.
This is my first job interview so I'm a tad nervous as this is new territory and I'm not particularly the most happy chap around.
So I've come for advice, what should I expect at the interview, what should I be saying and how should I be acting.
Also, what should I be wearing, I don't own a suit and tie as I've never needed one, I was thinking pants and a clean non-logo t-shirt.

I'm a sex worker. Escort, courtesan, call girl, hooker, prostitute, whore, whatever you want to call it. It's what I do. And I'm here to give you advice on anything you think I might have the authority to give advice on.
Picture unrelated, but I thought you all might need your daily dose of Vonnegut.

I'm looking for career advice.
I hate school and everything associated with it: classrooms, homework, studying for tests, lectures and all that shit. I just want to work, become proficient at a skill and progress in whatever career that I find myself in. I'm in school now, upgrading my high school credits and it is such a soul sucking experience; I don't know if it's worth it. I am doing this so I can keep my options open and be able to go into any program I want in vocational school/university. I am having a very difficult time finding entry level jobs as well, which was the major motive to go back to school.
i already have a very clear idea of what kind of dream career I wish to pursue, but I am not willing to go balls deep into it because it is very risky. I am looking for a "day job"; a stable career path. I've been dicking around with a couple ideas, but I am not really sure what I want to do. I know that academia is not the path for me. I am very unhappy in the classroom and I always end up zoning out, listening to music or browsing the internet on whatever gadget I have on hand. I am quite stressed that I cannot find the super safe and appealing career that I can invest in.
What should I do?

Why do women usually take a shine, and become sympathetic, to you when you mention you're depressed over another girl? I mean in cases where you don't really elaborate on your probably like some obsessed weirdo, just one or two sentences summing up the situation and how you feel about it. Whenever I do it, they usually become nicer and friendlier instantly, and my chances of getting a date with them increases (and have gotten dates with them).
Then again, my only current girl problem is that there's one I like a lot, and she hates the absolute crap out of me, and I'm the only one she treats like this, while literally everyone else she's friendly and nice to. But still, when I mention to a woman about this (again by summarizing it in two sentences maximum), they become more friendly and nice, and sometimes will say stuff like "boy I know that feeling," or going "ohhhh" in a tone that suggests they understand it.
But tl;dr: depressed about girl, mention it to other women without elaborating more than a line about it, women instantly grow kinder and more keen to talk to me, and have managed to get dates because of this. Explain (preferably by femanons).
Also this is a picture of a fart. Never forget that.

I need some advice on how to deal with my entitlement.
I'm a poorfag from California who recently graduated from a good university with a degree in Civil Engineering. There aren't a whole lot of these jobs available, but there's a big influx of lower-tier jobs for people with my education and background. Once upon a time, freshly graduated engineers made about $25-$30 per hour, or a $50K-$60K yearly salary. Everything I'm finding online is $15-$20/hour. I found a decent job with a local county working for their transportation department for $18-$27 per hour. The minimum requirements were a certificate, a degree, or experience. One of three was good enough. I had the certificate AND degree so that was good enough to get me the job. However, they want me to start off at the lowest end of the payscale. I brought it up to the hiring manager, but he's set on not paying me more because I don't have any experience. This has got me pretty pissed off but I'm not getting any sympathy from my friends since I should "be happy to even have a job, especially in California right now."
I'm going to continue looking for better jobs while this one keeps me fed. I'm not looking for any pity, just ways to deal with this until I can actually find a job that pays a reasonable salary. It's taking all my patience not to turn down the job because my degree has become worthless.

tl;dr I hate college but my parents will force me to do it no matter what course I take, which saddens me to the fullest; what do?
I hate my undergraduate course. I dislike most "college people" and most teachers. I have absolutely no intention of graduating - and even if I did, that wouldn't be such a great thing for me economically. But it's not only my undergraduate course (which is Philosophy); I have no interest in college whatsoever. The main reason why I'm even registered is my parents wouldn't allow me to stay home and just write and read literature (and work too). I'm only attending one class, because it's not part of my undergraduate degree and it's really interesting, and I am taking one Philosophy exam next week, although I haven't attended to any of its classes.
I share my apartment with another guy, but my parents pay my half - and that's when things get tough. They are not struggling to give me money. Of course it's money that they could spend on something else, but it's not making them poorer either; but it makes me feel bad all the same. If I went back home, they'd spend nearly the same amount of money on me, for they would force me to study in some other college near home. But as I said before, it makes me feel bad all the same. All I want to do is reading and writing and watching films, and I wouldn't mind some regular job either, but they just won't let me. What do? Should I just force myself into attending to classes and passing them, even though it makes me want to kill myself and depresses me very deeply? Am I just spoiled? Any opinion will be of great value.
Picture unrelated. I just love autumn.

I suffer from pretty severe depression. I had to see a psychiatrist (or psychologist, I don't know the difference) and she said that I probably had clinical depression, but I told her and my parents that that was horseshit. Looking back now it seems like she was right.
My problem is, even though its fucking killing me, I can't bring myself to admit that I'm depressed to anyone, not even to doctors who I know are confidential. I have no idea why. But its looking like I'd legitimately rather kill myself than bring myself to get help. It's stupid and I have no idea why.
I don't know that there is any advice that could help in this situation, but I'm willing to listen.
