Yeah, everyone knows crack addicts don't commit crimes in order to support their drug habit.

Well I'm moving here next week(Monday probably). I see 5 possible outcomes.....

1) get murdered
2) get hooked on drugs
3) waste all my money, not find a job and move back home..
4) find a job, have some success and live a good life here or somewhere else
5) win a jackpot, and get fat and happy.

rank them on most likely outcome.........

id rank them like this
4) find a job, have some success and live a good life here or somewhere else
3) waste all my money, not find a job and move back home..
2) get hooked on drugs
1) get murdered
5) win a jackpot, and get fat and happy.

I know that I'm just saying I dont mind people who do that **** as long as they don't bother me with it. they ask for money from me? I may give them a couple bucks but as long as I don't get rolled ill be fine. That's what I was trying to ask, how often do robbery's happen.

I have found a few for around 600bucks like this one... Camden Hills Apartments in Las Vegas, NV | Apartments.com

how is that area of town? I used to live with my sister here a couple years ago so I know about the CAT bus system, and places to go, but I don't remember what N Jones BLVD was like. I also need a place that is furnished.

As for jobs go I don't have one lined up but I plan on going to the temp to hire agencies like Kelly Services Addeco etc... I have previous work experiences in the kitchen and manufacturing, packaging shipping etc....Id rather do buffet line work in the kitchen if possible because I'm not that great at cooking orders too fast paced for me. I also like shipping but it would probably be really hot in those type of environments.

My parents think I'm stupid which I might be because of how bad the job market is, but I have enough money I think? (5K) to get started, and I need to get away from my parents as fast as possible or Ill lose my mind.

I know I'm not really asking any questions but any advice you have for me? I plan to leave next Monday.
Appreciate the help

Dido what your parents said....
