NOTE: I'm going to make this as straightforward as I can. I'm not asking for sympathy, money, or anything else except advice from others who may have thought of something I didn't I'm 19, just got out of college and was interested in learning IM a couple months ago when I started. I devoted a budget of $1,000 to IM so I could learn the ropes. I fully expected to lose all of it and still do, I consider it the cost of learning different methods and experimenting with different services, good and bad. Since then, my funds have dwindled down to about $400.00 and I realized I needed a job, so that I have a constant source of income while I learn and experiment more. Here's where I feel trapped. I don't have a license and live in the middle of nowhere, still with my parents (I'm 19). Nobody will let me drive their car so I have no experience and can't get a license even if I wanted to because I'd fail. More than that, I can't get a car because I don't have a couple thousand dollars to buy and register one, which I'd need a job for. For any job I get, I can go at most a couple times a week if it fits in with my parents schedule, but there are no jobs available during the day time that I'll be able to hold steadily, As I'll explain right away. In short, the only jobs that I can do are ones that I'm interested in. Judgements and other thoughts aside, you're going to have to take my word on this one because it's extremely hard to understand if you're not experiencing things through my shoes and dealing with the way my mind works. I've worked multiple jobs in the past and they simply don't last more than a couple weeks if I don't care about them and am only doing them for the money. The job I have NEEDS to be one I'm at least somewhat interested in, otherwise I'm going to end up hating it and then quitting, just like what's happened before. I literally cannot hold a job if I'm just doing it for the money. So, I like jobs that involve primarily interacting with people and jobs that involve primarily interacting with technology. I've applied at every computer store in town and nobody is hiring. I've also applied at a place where you work with people who have intellectual disabilities, which is something I've done at camp and in high school. I enjoy it immensely. They have positions available, but they're only at night time when my parents can't drive me. All day positions are filled up everywhere in town that I'd be interested in working, and all night positions are unavailable to me because I can't get driven to them. I can't move to the city to work the nights because I can't get money for an apartment because I have no job. I've been trying to scout out more computer stores and trying to brain storm other "social" jobs, but I haven't been successful. I'm at a total loss as to what to do. I'd be happy to clarify any points that may lead to further ideas and conclusions. I just don't know what to do.
