Yes, it is always someone else's fault.

Its not their fault that you didn't try to do something instead of complaining. Everyone has to take responsibility for their actions. I was too laid back in college and screwed myself a bit I am taking responsibility for it and striving to make a difference.

The more you blame others, the harder it is to turn things around.

There is blame to go around, but only you can fix your situation.

Not really. The OP is a trust-fund baby.

Massage Therapy school is at for profit schools.

Also, if you graduated from an accredited college (prestigious as you say) there is no time limit on getting help with job placement. You can contact them 30 years after you graduate and career services will still help you. (hopefully whomever you sent the nasty letter to a few years ago is not longer there).

Not screwed by a long shot, if you are willing to invest some time:

I know back east (where I live), the schools also have adult education programs. I looked up LA, and voila, the school system also has a wealth of vocational programs.

Career Technical Education (CTE) Course Outlines | DACE

Some ideas are: (Click on the categories)

Landscaping (you can start your own business eventually)

Airframe and Powerplant (very good job prospects here)

Forensic Science (CSI, anyone?)
