Besides, having a job while going to school gives you a heads up on a job history , which most students don't have ,making it harder for them to get jobs .
Employers are looking for the reputation and work ethic, more than skill , because it is likely that you will have to learn how they want things done any way.
LOL...try again.

See I've been researching all the states, and I finally just decided that I really don't know where to go, and I will never know until I go and get some firsthand experience.

And yea I'm not really thinking about the future too much right now. I already went to college and left before I finished a degree... I'm only 3 classes short. But when I left mid semester, I also left without paying the bill, so I don't actually have access to those credits I got. And I owe money to the collectors or something which I don't plan on paying in this lifetime.

The way I see it machines are going to replace all jobs anyway. Eh I'll do something necessary like organic farming...and where I'm going, that is probably possible. I also don't mind doing nothing. Something tells me I might find a lucrative way to get money, a lot of money, but not until I'm nearing 40.

I also have a neck pillow for this bus ride so it shouldn't be too bad...neck pillows are also good for computers which I just learned.

Not much of a survival scheme. I'd suggest you re-think it.

Of course you don't. What a baby.

I'm sure your parents will appreciate your leaving them with the creditors to deal with. Nice touch.

If you aren't a troll, then I wish you good luck. It is not safe to do what you are doing.

right now I'm really pissed off because I could have gotten a much cheaper bus with MEGABUS, and I could already be on the way right now...

nah you're wrong I think...I'm sure it's perfectly safe. It's a great college town. Living at home is much more unsafe...I think I have a greater chance of succumbing to a degenerative disease living at home, than I will by getting mugged or bitten by a black widow...again, it's a great town and a good bet.
