I never said the only way to success was a degree. You are reading what you want to read. I said education - whether degree or certification of some sort. Training, along with experience longer than a few months before you quit in a huff because your boss said or expected something you don't want to do.

You're a smart girl but your maturity and discipline are stuck at age 16. Sound familiar?
The drunkards are year round. Nashville has turned into a party city and the locals are unhappy.

Iím not. I hate this house. It pisses me off.
All he and I can do is pay off our debts from our early 20s improve our credit scores and get a mortgage for a house once we both have good scores and a decent down payment.

Heís been at his job for a year and a half ish now and things are finally starting to turn around financially.
He was able to get approved for a truck loan.
Next is a home loan.

Since heís gotten this last job weíve been doing smart things and being responsible.
We donít eat out, we donít go to the movie theatres, the clothes I got for Christmas are the first clothes Iíve gotten in a long time.

You told me I wasnít thinking past this month.
Iím not just banking on the holiday drunks, Iím thinking into the future knowing Broadway in Nashville is ALWAYS going to be a cash cow.

Iíll have to file my taxes on my own. Iíll withhold every month instead of all at the end next year.
And more than likely Iíll be paying for my own insurance. My grandmother was showing me some plans that were in my price range if I work full time.

You can qualify for free tuition by going as little as 6 hours a semester. That would only be a couple of days a week. That leaves you PLENTY of time to drive for Uber.

You can't think of ANYTHING on this list that you would want to do that pays better than Uber?

So your big long-term goal is to drive drunks around town? You've set a very low bar for yourself.

No I planned on using some of my money to do acting and dance classes. Since Iíll be spending a lot of time in Nashville anyways Iíll be right there where all the dance studios are. I could just head down earlier than the bars let out. Usually these places open at 5pm from what their websites say.

It a way to make money to fund the things I do want to do.
Once Iíve attended classes for awhile and I start to feel comfortable I can start to go audition.
Nashville is booming and Iím going to capitalize on it.
