Am I the only one having incredible difficulty finding a job?

I just graduated from college. I have my BA. And basically ever since August I've been nonstop job searching and have found nothing.

I'm starting to lose it.

Go back to school definitely. That's the best advice I could give you. One of my professors once said, "A BA in Psych lands you in Old Navy selling socks".. get into graduate work or consider medical school.
