I'm 21 years old and I'm a hobo already

I'm 21 years old and I'm a hobo already.

I don't have any goals or motivations, I didn't find nothing that fills me, and my parents are a bit poor (work in Spain is fucked up), so I didn't go to college, my family loves me even if I'm a failure, but they press me to do something and I really want to help them and myself.

What can I do? any advice?

I don't really like anime that much, I spend most of the time playing videogames or with friends.

I don't have too much money so that's difficult and risky.

Come on man, why are you wasting our time with this thread? You know what you have to do, you just want to be coddled and told that what you're doing is ok. You know you have to stop fucking around and get a job, start making some money and grow the fuck up. Come on man.

I went to every single Burguer King and McDonald's of my city, but they not even called me for an interview, right now I'm looking for something to study at least.

Construction? Painting? Pet sitting? Administrative work? Driving?

You don't want a job, or you would be out looking.

This one thousand times over, I'm 19 and never even considered McD's or Burger King, I've got a construction job while I'm in school that gives me more than double the wage at a fast food restaurant and it barely took any time to find, the immediate go-to location for most of my friends was fast food restaurants and barely any got employed because for some reason everyone's applying to those... Do something else, I'm sure there is somewhere you can work that you didn't expect if you take a second look.

It's not that easy, construction sector is dead since the crisis started, right now if you don't have a career you are nothing, even my father couldn't find a work by himself, actually he is working thanks to his friend that is helping him.

I doubt you've applied everywhere though bud... You are posting here instead of trying, and if you go through every store in your neighborhood and get nothing, just fucking do another round you never know when a position will open.

Keep making excuses for yourself, see where that gets you.

I have to admit that I haven't tried looking for something specific, I just went to supermarkets and fast food restaurants where I thought I had more opportunities.

Yes. It is.
You either find a way, or you fin an excuse.
And all I'm hearing out of you are excuses.

even my father couldn't find a work by himself
Then he's a loser that needs to put in real effort too.

B-but I NEED it
Apparently not enough for you to be searching instead of throwing a pity party on a Tibetan noodle slurping technique forum.

If your city has a lack of jobs think of how you can take advantage of that. You can buy their stuff for cheap when they need to sell it to pay the bills and resell it online.

He can make all the excuses he wants if he's shooting out his Resume and filling job applications not much more he can do.

I myself have reached the point where I can spend 10minutes looking at job sites because I've been so on top of it I only need a few minutes now to see if there are new postings. And unlike him I have prior work experience.

And the "walk in and give them a firm handshake" meme is just that, a meme.

I have a friend that, upon finishing his degree, walked into a company he liked, asked if he could be given a tour of the place and, 2 weeks later, he had a job there. He literally chose the company, walked in and asked to be employed.
