Meh, every generation says that about the generation that follows them. I take it with a grain of salt and look at the rest of the message that a poster is trying to send to me.
Since my last post I've gone to my community college to get an idea of what I'll have to do to get into school full time. I've been pushing away from the idea of going to school for philosophy and instead looking at supply chain management. I already have experience in the field from my old job, having created and managed a six figure budget, created an inventory ordering/tracking system, etc. and it's something that interests me. The community college has a partnership with the local university which offers fixed rate tuition and guaranteed admission into my program of study.
I have a job lined up too. My grandparents own a roofing business and are looking to retire in a few years, and they need someone to handle the office tasks among other things. Right now I'm making $350/wk which probably won't cover my expenses but once I assume more responsibilities I'll get paid more. I also found a way to play online poker from the US so from May through August I plan to go to school while playing full time in hopes of clearing makeup and earning some money of my own. Once my full time school schedule starts I'll likely quit poker completely (or close to it) and work for my grandparents when I can to pay the bills.
I don't have a car yet and I'm living at home right now (not for free) but my parents will let me borrow their spare car for the time being and there should be a lot of apartments available for lease in a couple of months when school is out.
