Update- I wasn't expecting this to blow up over night. I'll respond back to everyone later today when I'm not working. But here's a few answers of repeated questions:
1) more schooling isn't an option right now as I'm still trying to pay off my original school loans equalling almost $20k
2) I have a skilled trade job that I went to school for in the mechanic field. I chose this job because it's something I love to do. My step father is also a mechanic and makes $60k+ a year so it's not a low wage job it just doesn't pay 100k+ like some other jobs. I wasn't looking for a get rich quick job, just something I can live comfortably on.
3) for everyone telling me to find a new job...learn to read please. I'm starting a new job on Thursday making more money. But I'm not sure if it's going to be enough to live on my own just yet.
