Money sucks

Posted by Kingbowser at March 26, 2012

I am 27 years old. I had this girlfriend for 9 years, high school sweethearts. Started dating around 15. I thought she was going to be the girl i was with forever. I can't even recall what happened but we ended up breaking up and were too stubborn to talk about our problems. After high school i got a construction job with her neighbor. Awesome job for someone so young. I made 22 an hour. When the break up happened i snapped and made some awful decisions. The main bad move was i quit my job because i couldn't stand having to park outside of her house everyday to go to work. So i sit and live off what i have saved for about 3 years and did absolutely nothing. Alot a world of warcraft, hanging out with friends drinking, different girlfriends. Yea, i dated some crazy chicks in 3 years. Most of you are wondering how i could not work for 3 years! well i live with my dad and he doesn't charge me rent, try to give him money sometimes but he never takes it. I started to get super depressed in that time mostly about love. I'd wonder if i'd ever get that feeling back where you truly love someone and they love you. And then it happened. I am wasted at a bar with friends one night and ask this random SMOKIN girl to go to a upcoming wedding with me, that i was just invited to. We had some mutual friends so she says yes! We went to that wedding and everything since then has been a miracle. Been dating her for 6 months now. So, here is the problem, i want to start a life with this girl. Have our own place, maybe have kids someday, the typical thing every person wants. But i can't find a job worth a shit!!!!! Right now i work construction still, with a new guy but its only part time and i am not making the kind of money that can support a family @ only 14 an hour. Without a college degree it seems i am only ever offered 10 an hour no matter what it is. Yes i know i have the option of going to school......but i am getting sorta old and do want to start that life that i mentioned. I am willing to move away if i landed a good job. All i'm looking for is a new exciting opportunity for a career and have no clue where i should start to look. I'm realizing you can't get anything decent without college. Money sucks!

I am 41 and just started nursing school after 20+ years as a computer dude. Do what I did after years of being miserable: call the community college closest to you and apply. You can get cost of living loans to help you out, and your gf may even help you...did you ever ask her how she feels about the situation?

How good or bad your life is is totally relative. I would kill to have your life dude.

Even college grads are making $12 an hour and working retail jobs. They can't get jobs in their fields because the economy is so bad. I would also caution against getting a lot of student loan debt because once you graduate you may not be able to get a job in your field and you'll have massive debt to repay. I know you want to start your life w/ your girl but right now the best thing would probably be to save as much money as possible, work two jobs. Try to get with a company that will offer tuition reimbursement if going back to school is what you really want to do. You should have at lease $10,000 saved before you even consider moving out of your dad's house. I wish I could go back home, you don't realize how lucky you have it not having to pay rent, utilities, etc. Its very hard out here in the REAL world where you have to pay bills and struggle to keep a roof over your head.

As long as you are trying and not just wasting your life playing video games, a good girl will be supportive of you.
