I wasn't sure if this was the right place for this thread or not but figured it was as good as any. Okay I'm going to try to make this as short as possible. But it will probably still be long. Bascially I'm 20 years old and 100% confused about life and what I want to do. When I graduated high school I went to junior college just down the road from where all my friends were attending a big university. I didn't give a damn about school and ended up flunking most of my classes. The next year, my parents made me move home and I transferred to a university about 50 miles from our house and commuted everyday. Well I didn't care anymore about school than I had the previous year and with both my parents being gone to work everyday I found it real easy not to make that hour long commute everyday. So after a semester and a half of only going to class about half the time I decided school wasn't my thing. I quit school in March of this year. In June I was finally able to find a job working at the plant where my dad worked. I got hired and was getting tons of hours making double the hourly wage that some of my friends were making. Well now it's a few months later and I've begun to really regret my decision. Don't get me wrong, I have a good job and work for a great company but something about it just isn't right. Working here has showe me that I really need to go back to school and get my degree. But I'm not quite sure how I want to approach the situation. I have a few options...
1. Continue working my full time job and go back to school part time (6-9 hour semesters).
2. Quit my full time job, go to school full time (12+ hours/semester), and get a part time job.
3. Quit my full time job, go to school part time and get a part time job.
There are a few conditions though that might be important. A couple of weeks ago I just bought a new truck. I have a pretty big loan out for the truck and if I quite my current full time job I won't be able to afford the payments/insurance, even with a part time job. So I'd have to sell my truck I just got and go back to something without a payment. I'd more than likely end up losing $1500 or so if I had to sell it. Unless there was someway I could just take it back to the dealer and get my money back (this doesn't actually exist does it?). Also, without a job I won't be able to move away from my parents house so I've been looking at 100% online classes. After looking into it I really think this would be the best way for me to go back to school. I'm tired of typing now and y'all are probably wondering what the point of this post even is so I'm goign to stop now. Basically I'm just looking from advice from those of you who may have been in the same situation as me before or who have had kids in the same situation. If there's anything I left out, just ask.
