Ahhh yes.

I thought the whole thing sounded familiar.

Hi, I am just 24 years old. I am still young and figuring out life. You all act as if a predicament never came through your lives once or twice and may be more. Secondly, I am highly convinced that the majority of City-Data users are Baby-Boomers or from the Gen X generation. If I am correct you all grew up in a great economy where struggling was not as much when trying to make a come up. I am a millennial, and as you all know we did not come of age in a great economy. I am trying. The harsh words about grammar and life is uncalled for. Do you all even have any room to talk down about someone over the internet? I am not aware nor do I care enough about the personal lives of the posters, but I wonder are you all lives so perfect to pick through the life of someone wanting help?
This board is full of pathetic old people.
I am certified in VPK or PreK educator in Florida not in other states. I am currently working on K-12 certs.

I am moving out of the apartment. My finance can not and will not afford an over a thousand dollars a month one bedroom. my boyfriend is a great guy despite his past. I love him and he loves me.

I am currently enrolled back in school and need to be somewhere that is simple and not costly. With the current president, I am uncertain what is to come of the economy. I rather move somewhere cheaper and build my savings. In a cheaper place, I will have enough to splurge. No, I am not going without cable. I will sacrifice the apartment and more than likely change cable services.

My boyfriend spends money on the food and gas since he makes less than me
Speeding ticket do not "happen". Depending on where you are and if it is reckless driving the misdemeanor will put a damper on some jobs.

I came back to see just how much crazier this thread became. LOL

It essence, since BF has an income of a whopping $200, I'd bet that the OP is buying her own wedding ring. The OP reminds me of a young woman at work who takes care of her boyfriend, and I truly think it's so that she can control him. All the while he thinks he has HER under control because she buys his "love".

He brought the wedding ring yesterday and it was in sale at Zales. Nice try though.

Ms. Curious, you might be right that a lot of us are boomers, I am. But a lot of us started from the bottom too. You are not making sound financial decisions and you ignore helpful advice from the very people that blazed the same trail you find yourself on.

The schools you attended did a tremendous disservice to you. I don't know what your situation was but I think you will continually have employment issues despite your degree. It seems no one along the line demanded that you understand English, finance, reasoning, or simple arithmetic as you kept getting promoted to the next grade. You probably are not stupid but you come across as very uneducated. This will not help you. The fault is likely with the schools you attended, especially your high school and college. These schools let you down.

OMG, how could he afford a wedding ring when you can't afford rent or utilities. Oh I know utilities are covered in your rent: well on this post they are I think it is the other where they are not covered or many I have the two mixed up. As for us being old or growing up in the days when the economy was so much better, tell that to my grandchildren who are in your same general age bracket. They have gone to college, are paying student loans, have decent jobs and both even have kids. They can do it, anyone can.

Seems like the OP did not need any advice to start with. Wonder why she started the thread then.
