Megaman Command Mission!  
So, I don't know about the job situation. People ask what I'm looking for and honestly I just want to work with people within 10 years my age (currently 24) on something where each day is building on the previous day. also something that pays more than 40K annually would be nice.
Those are my main requirements (outside of things like non-shitty environment and company/product I can't stand).
You would think I would be able to find something, although I don't even get responses when reply to job offers on craigslist. I think I should post my resume more places, or maybe just go with plan B - work at starbucks part time, and do study in CS and actually learn java.
Ultimatly I plan on starting my own company making toys or games or school equipment or something, but right now not only can I don't pay the bills, I'm bored and isolated and it's making me unbearably depressed....
and I can't even cheer myself up by buying a nintendo wii!!!!! (Although I did buy the controller.)

So, today I'm gonna post on more places. like dice.com or something. actually the only people who have contacted me found my resume on monster.
I wish my resume didn't not make sense.

blah.... will write more later

You definitely need to learn Java. Especially since PHP is practically Java now with the 5.2 release and is only getting closer to being its JIT clone, anyone who knows Java well also knows PHP well. And people who know both can get pretty much any entry-level 50k/yr web engineering job oh a whim.

We actually just hired a couple good Java developers, even though we only code in OO-based PHP. They were pumping out great PHP code after like a 2 hour crash course in PHP, even though they'd never even touched it, since the two are so similar now on the OO front.

However, people who think they know PHP "really well" but haven't used Java (or C++ I guess) are usually not even good PHP developers. Some dude who's been coding non-OO PHP for like a decade and thought he was the shit applied for the same job, but was pretty much useless because he didn't really understand the whole inheritance thing at all, or even really basic shit like the difference between a class and an actual object. It was sad.

So yeah, all I really meant to say was, definitely go learn Java decently well, and you'll easily get a semi-nerdy job at a start-up or something, making good money and having fun developing on a big and meaningful project.

wow. that is sad. It's like a guy using mac os 8 being asked a question about file permission. (ok, that's just an obnoxious high school teacher.)

Still, people are contacting you about your resume, despite the fact it may appear to you to be a bit muddled. Have Hope :)
