My brother and I are both in college but my parents could only afford to send one of us out of state. My brother does basketball and because big name colleges are starting to look at him, he got to go. I'm happy for my brother but that just makes me wonder, "what about me?" Even though my parents pay for everything my brother buys, he has way more freedom than me. I live at home with my parents. I work a minimum wage job that has no benefits and my coworkers are assholes. Plus my boss only lets me work a couple hours a week. I'm not even sure if this job is worth the drive every day. My community college is incredibly small and I haven't made any friends. I go to work, go to school and come home. I occasionally go to the library. All my friends from high school are off doing there own thing and I'm stuck at home. What can I do to feel less lonely and how can I save up money to move out within a year?

Some people live good lifes, others are failures. Your brother lives a good life, and you are a failure. Even your parents think so. But you're not alone. I'm a failure too. So is everyone on gag.3

I don't know anything about you or your brother, but let's be honest. This is super screwed up. From reading it sounds like they favor him because of his athleticism, especially since you included they pay for everything for him. But let's be objective for a minute. Is there a reason why they wouldn't let you go away? Are you responsible? Do they have reason to worry about your grades? There's likely a reason you're not aware of or that you're not telling us.2
