It's surreal there is so little work around. I never thought I'd be broke at 30. The bus only cost me $0.60 and I still find myself digging for
I've been working since I was 15, got my driver's license the day I turned 16, got decent grades, went to college, didn't want to take out 30K in
student loans to finish so I joined the Navy and that ended up being the worst decision of my life. Got a DUI while in the Navy which resulted in a
general discharge(no GI bill) and left the Navy less employable than when I went in.
So that leaves where I'm at now, broke with no car or license and can't find any meaningful work, the occasional labor gig here and there.
It could be worse, many of my friends are working 50+ hour jobs that they hate, make decent money but give it right back with mortgages, car payments
and most of them are deep in debt(but with a good credit score). I'm happy most of the time but it sucks not being able to afford to go out to eat or
go out to do anything.
I really want to find a deckhand position on a boat, any boat make some money and rack up the sea time for a big captain's license.
