Is it possible to live on your own without college? Like at all? No one ever taught me any skills and I was stupid as fuck at college and I can't pick a major.
I don't see why that means I'm completely fucked out of my independence. You need to make like 35k a year to even have a decent car and an apartment with roommates in a shitty part of the city. Even the cheap parts of cities like Harlem and long beach are expensive as fuck. It's like you can only live in small Midwestern cities now.
You can live alone in a one bedroom apartment without college, you'll have to work full-time (most likely at minimum wage) and will always be only a couple paychecks from losing it all and being homeless. That's how a fuck ton of people live, it's really not that weird.
Forget about having a car.
>I should at least be able to live in the shitty part of the city
Maybe in Bernie Sander's fantasy land. But in the real world, if you work for minimum wage and want any quality of life, you can't be in a big city. Rural areas are actually more white so it's not entirely bad.
I would say yes. I'm only basing this off of friends I know, but you'd likely be doing something mundane.
A few of my friends work in assembly plants. The work seems monotonous as hell and hours can be shit (4am-1pm) but the pay is relatively good for not needing an education. Overtime and holiday pay increase a ton.
Some guy I know moved out to Montana to work in a sugar refinery. Guess he gets paid a lot but lives in an RV in the middle of nowhere.
Literally put yourself out there is all I can say. You won't get any experience sitting around. While I lived with my family I worked some odd jobs in a factory, from there I started working in the store room for Sears. From there I got a job delivering stoves and fridges to homes. Then I got a cdl and started actually driving the trucks and that experience landed me my current job at UPS. I make enough money that I can splurg quite a bit. This was years ago though, but volunteer work is really common now so you can even pick up experience there. Took me a while to get out of the cycle in pic related, but you can do it anon believe in yourself.
Become a security guard, OP. The training's easy and if you're not a degenerate covered in piercings and tattoos, they'll hire you on the spot.
In the US the job pays anywhere between $8 and $15 an hour so at least it's a bit higher than minimum wage. Throw in some overtime and you're good to go.
I already took a 2 year vocational program for criminal justice and took it in college for 2 years and got a little bit of training towards security during that.
I have a dui though does that ruin it? Do they drug test?
Damn do you work security? Is it possible to move up to armed patrol/shift management and keep getting promotions? Do they drug test constantly or just one time at the interview?
For me it was a one time thing. Why is it important though? Do you do drugs?
As for upward mobility I think it depends on the company. I think most reputable ones will be more flexible on that.
Yes. You just need to find the right opportunity.
Capitalism is completely fucked up.
Some people get paid a nickel an hour to work 16/hrs a day sewing Levi Jeans.
Other people get paid $120,000k a year to sit at a desk and play Bejewelled or shitpost.
If you are living somewhere with a bad economy, MOVE. Get on a Greyhound bus to somewhere with jobs.
I don't do pills or anything hard I do marijuana medicinally once in awhile though and the shit stays in your system for a month
But if I live in my own and paying for an apartment I assume I'll either quit or do it less
A friend of mine just finished some community college course and just started working after like a year and a half. I'm not 100% sure how his program works, but he's already got a job and I'm stuck in a Uni and a field I don't want to go into and $40k in debt... so...
Unsexy white collar jobs in an unsexy industry, preferably with nepotism.
Become an "Online Advertising Manager" for some no-name mid-sized company and you'll probably fill out spreadsheets twice a week and look busy the rest of the time.
