GET AN EDUCATION AT HOME
Memorizing useless occult 'facts' and useless bits of arcane trivia will only worsen your situation. Get a degree at home from a Nationally accredited school. Sure, you can get a phony degree from numerous diploma mills, but they are worthless. There are manny occultists calling themselves "Doctor" after buying a fake Doctor of Divinity degree from the Universal Life Church, but these dgrees are worthless, other than for joke purposes. Instead of being angry about your situation in life and resenting others, why not do something to improve it?
This school has been around for 150 years, and is accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC). This school offers degrees from High School Diploma all the way up to Ascociates Degrees. Low cost tuition and easy payments plans make it very affordable. Many courses available, including Business Management and Criminal Justice.

GET OUT OF DEBT!
No, prosperity spells won't make you rich, and all the money you spent on expensive books didn't help! But there is a way out of debt, it's called Consumer Credit Counselors. Don't be fooled by all the imitators that will take your money and leave you in worse shape. CCC is the ORIGINAL service started in 1974. They are a non-profit orginization. They can negotiate with your creditors and work out a payment plan you can afford.
