I don't want to come off as nasty
You are 26 and have been with someone for 8 years so high school sweetie, that's cool
You went to school/college/tech school etc for several years and since you couldn't pay with cash, you owe student loans, and almost paid off, that's good...cheers
With this degree you can only find employment that allows 18 hours a week, I know that I couldn't live on that in Florida or even here(yes I realize he cut your hours, why not get a 2nd or 3rd job?) Just asking because if my employer said that I would be gone, and I would do whatever to get by and grow strong again
So why not move to another state, and start over? You are young, not tied down and no need to stay
You should be an asset to your employer, if not move on
What do you do...OR can you do...what is major in?
I would grab a suitcase or duffel bag...grab your cash (better bet would be to live on nothing no beer etc for those 4 weeks)
And then in those next 4 weeks sell everything you don't need and leave....period...walk away
Life is too precious to waste away......
First step is save, second step sell everything...move to a none tourist low tax area and reboot.
Be very frugal, no $150 hotel rooms and no fast food or restaurants
I know I seem harsh, I mean good
Home is where your heart is...a house is just a....place to lay your head
You need food and water, then shelter and remember to always smile and want to move forward
If I am out of line let me know
P.s. do you even paragraph yo'
Read a book.....peter Jenkins "a walk across america" use it to kick start an adventure in your soul ;) ...... No peoti ....... Or wild 'sh rooms ;)
