Trust me, the sand box is nowhere near as bad as it used to be my friend. It is much easier and faster to rank sites now than it was just a year ago. Just keep at it, you will rank with the right links, content, and dedication to your project. I wasn't trying to burst your bubble, but realistically nothing in this life comes "easy".
Good luck to you.
