The main thing is having the wearwithal to see it through.
Well if the limo driving job works out I'm going to attend school (CSN) online if I have to (if my schedule keeps me that occupied) I want to get a degree come hell or high water even though I hate school

I should have done so earlier but the way I see it now is like this....

I've owned my car for 4 yrs, if I can commit to a loan for 4 yrs I can commit to the same amount of time in school. And I feel with a degree my life, and job will be more stable, which is what I ultimately want

Sorry Davie but it is just not the same. Making car payments once a month is nothing compared to going to school, online or brick/mortar. Take it from someone who just finished school last year right around his 31st birthday. I only wish getting my degree was as easy as making a payment.

Do it anyway, Davie. Nothing worth having is easy to get.

Congrats on your degree, Von. What did you major in?

Thanks. Business management.

I probably have the most useless degree out there. Not because of the title but by how I obtained it. Over ten years of "going to school". Physical college classes from 5 different schools, 3 different online schools, work experience credit, basic training credit, technical trade school credit, CLEP tests, DANTE'S test, some advanced courses from my job that so happened to transfer to college credits, and a ton of loooong seminars while oversees that gave my college credits also.

At least I have that "check mark" to put on a resume, if i ever get to use a resume. It also didn't cost me a dime.

If anything, Davie, at least get it while you don't have a family. That was my biggest hurdle, so late in the game.

I understand why you want to live in a house; and, it is perfectly acceptable to have that as a goal. What you should be doing is renting a small apartment and saving up your money to achieve that goal.

Your problem with this decision is the same problem you seem to have with every other decision in your young life. You don't want to work toward a goal - - - you want immediate gratification.

You've made the same mistake with every aspect of your life that you write about. You jump from one thing to the next because you want what you want and you want it now. Be it jobs, cities, or the type of abode you want to live in.

I'm sorry if this is harsh, but you did ask for opinions.
I noticed that this post was not responded too. It's too bad as it's the best advice in this thread. The more things change the more the stay the same I suppose.
