If nopony had a job, the economy would be f**ked. But besides that, you don't have to have everything. I'm fine with a high paying job, but I live on a bare minimum because I like it. The rest goes to the government and into savings.

>"...keep giving money to the Jews. A free man is free from these Jewish desires and has a righteous character..."
He was making sense up to the point where he decided to reveal himself a massive anti-Semite.

Anyway, there's this concept called "unjobbing" which is not complete bunk. It basically suggests that there's ways to make living which don't involve corporate wage slavery.

This is true, but what you're essentially doing is entrepreneurship, it doesn't mean you're able to avoid hard work, it just means you'll be working on your terms.

I guess that's true if you're an unsuccessful entrepreneur. But hey, nobody said unjobbing was a cake walk.

Although actually I'm a little off, it's not necessarily about being an entrepreneur. It's more to do with being happy with what you got. Some blog. [theorganicsister.com]

>>39807925

he is a smart man; i would cut down but i don't think i can due to obamacare restrictions because i would have to go part-time and would therefore be eligible for free healthcare, so can't with the same company (i think)

forgot to mention the 30 minutes or so daily of just doing random required things... so more like 1-4 hours, depending on sleep

That's a long commute. Maybe you should try to move closer to work.

You could also be doing stuff during your breaks. And if you can afford it, you could always try a part-time job,

alot of people have commutes that long if they work in the city though, since alot of real estate inside the middle of cities is pretty shitty. And traffic is pretty terrible because of everypony else that's commuting.

I don't know where he lives, but I would think you'd be able to find an apartment or something that isn't shitty within an hour of your job. I was able to commute to Dallas from a suburb in about 25 minutes.

i can get an apartment like 5 minutes away (or less) but i would take a 50-80% discretionary income paycut since i live with parents

Yes. As long as you qualify and are half time or more. Google and fill out a FAFSA.

I don't recommend online classes, though. I prefer to take them in person. Way to easy to lose motivation for online classes.
>> No. 39808122
>>39808112

the question i wondered though - is how much you get & do you get any at all if you're claimed as a dependent on a tax return? i would need at least enough to cover car payment + insurance, & i would do online since there is a free online college i could do...

i think online could work though if i set it up right

The big factor is expected family contribution. If you are over 25 years old and your family is broke, you can set that to 0 and get full loan amounts. I was getting something like tuition + 6k for a half time semester this way between loans and the automatic grants.
