I've graduated form high school back in 2008. An I'm still planing on going into college, but in what I do not know yet. But in Michigan after college I can afford one bedroom apartment for $559.00, well of course have to get a job after college an all that stuff be for I can pay rent, also re-locating. Last two question: Is it called DMV in Northern Virgina? (Include what I need to know like is their a car inspection, what is the fee of getting the two license plats ect) What banking place do you have down in Northern Virginia? (Here in Michigan I go to Community Choice Credit Union)

Yes, it is the DMV. There is a safety inspection and emissions inspection. I don't know the fee, but you should be able to find out how much plates cost on the VA DMV website. There are a number of banks and credit unions, I wouldn't know where to start there.

Are you planning on living with your relatives for a while? Do you have no job prospects in Michigan?

Not everyone is cut out for college. Maybe some type of trade apprenticeship?

True enough, but someone who deliberately continues to misspell the same word in subsequent posts after that mistake is pointed out perhaps has bigger problems than spelling ... or possibly he's a troll.

You sound pretty young. I would honestly not recommend this area for people under 22. Way too family-oriented.
I agree. It is a very expensive area, and the job market for decent-paying jobs is competitive.

I'm not a troll at all. I do have bad spelling, people have bad spelling. Sadly people want to be rude as hell to the people who have bad spelling.

What are you typing with, a blackberry? Your writing skills are on par with a middle-school student. Take the time to read over your sentences and then hit the "submit reply" button. It's going to be hard to find a job in this area with weak writing skills.

I understand that people have bad spelling - I'm one of them. But when several people take the time to point out a mistake, and in a subsequent post you continue to misspell the same word, that's more than just a problem with spelling/keying/editing.

Exactly. In just this short thread, I don't see any effort to correct a simple spelling mistake. Either the person doesn't care (and that's not a good attitude to have when looking for a job) or the person willfully and knowingly continues to use the wrong word (and that's a much bigger problem).

I really, really think you would have a very difficult time finding a job here that would pay you enough money to afford the cost of living here.

I also really, really think that you're not serious - that you're just here to troll. And I won't feed you anymore.

You're right but he continues to use wood instead of would. Many spelling errors in all his postings. If these are not pointed out then he will continue to make the same mistakes. Hopefully the criticisms will open the OP's eyes and he'll take come classes to make some improvements. Like it or not we are judged on how well we write. Iff eye starte riting pourly then eny prospektive employer will onle laff at meye aplikation. it's a fact of life and the OP needs to know this.

OP---If you're serious and not a troll you may want to consider a different tactic. Open a MS Word document and write your post there. Allow MS to fix some of your spelling mistakes then cut and paste to here. It won't be perfect as wood and would are valid words but it's a start.
