Consider diversifying your savings and investments and putting some money into gold. Otherwise any serious bout of inflation may wipe them out. Also I think it's important for you to educate yourself financially, I don't mean a formal training, but being able to take care of your money. We live in very uncertain times. I agree with other posters - you are too young to give up on working life, as you are single and able to move anywhere basically where you can find a job, surely there must be something for you somewhere in the world!
