Whatever you do, don't give up hope.

The data entry sound boring, but it is good to know that you're putting that time to use in a way that not only enriches you, but that serves as an investment.

Keep following your interests. They will lead you to amazing places. When I was working in the restaurant, I was really interested in markets, and got that job at the brokerage. Whenever possible, treat your job like an extension of school. Learn what you can, and get paid while you do it.

Ultimately, the way out of the rat race is to start your own business. One of the best books to help you understand why, if you have not read it is:

Rich Dad Poor Dad

Another one, to give you some ideas about what is possible on a shoestring:

The $100 Startup

Keep up the good work!

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
