Hello all! Hope this year has been smooth for you so far. Summertime is here!

Please forgive me in advance.. this might be all over the place haha.

So I am 20 years old and have lived in N ATL just about my whole life. I graduated from high school two years ago, unfortunately ran into small legal trouble, and then ended up getting put on suspension from community college (GA Perimeter). I have been busy working jobs here and there, so it's not too bad.

I'm paying my dad back for the lawyer check he had to spot me on :/

Anyywaysss I'm just looking for fresh perspectives/ideas on here.

I want to find a year long program.. or job.. close to ATL. Think it would be cool to even find somethin in Chattanooga or a another city kinda close.

like a live+work program? where I could make a lot of money. I want to find a stable job for a year or so, make a good bit of money, and save.

I will absolutely go back to school...but when I feel is right. Everyone has a different path.
I need to get a degree down the road because it opens doors.

But I have been researching for a long time.. for entry level jobs, farm jobs, or anything.

for example. (a little daydream here) haha

-find a solid job near Asheville NC, and live+work for a year or so.

I warned ya it would be all over the place haha.

But basically I love the outdoors, mountains, working hard. Just wondering if ya'll had any ideas or know of anything I could get on board with.

any response would be much appreciated.


Respect,

John J

His legal trouble may make him ineligible for military service...depends on the conviction...but if he could enlist, that would be a great idea!

WWOOF-USA® - Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms, USA Work on a farm. You won't make much money if any but they provide everything you need. If you really need the money scratch that idea completely.

I know Public Storage offers you to work and live on their site (at some locations), hopefully your past legal issue won't prevent you from going forward in the hiring process if you're interested.
