Feeling trapped in an underemployed position

I’m feeling a little disheartened after today more than usual.

I’m 28 years old and I’m underemployed. I work part time as a cashier and still live at home. It’s frustrating because I’m doing work that a high schooler could do and I’m almost 30.

I’m so ashamed of how I live. I’m always hesitant about telling other people about my living situation, especially women I date. And I can’t take the disrespect I receive from customers anymore.

I have had a BA for 3 years, but it’s in a useless field (Asian Studies). I’ve never worked a full time job in my life, and I don’t even know where to begin. I don’t even care at this point what it is. I just want to finally be an adult and stop feeling like I need to hide my life from everyone I meet.

And I feel like it’s only going to get worse for me with Trump as president
