U know I think I can comment on this as a subject matter expert from the financial/career point of things.C-1_Biker wrote:
I can't wait to sell my car, then I should have enough to buy a blazer and a newer bike, but there's still the issue of my dad just saying no. I think its time to move out, but I only make 9.50 an hour, so if I had to pay rent I probably wouldn't even be able to afford a bike...this sucks...
Sorry, just venting.
Im a Finance Manager for a global company and lead a lifestyle with my family that we are very grateful for.
You definitly need to invest every bit of energy & resource you have into your education. The way I see this every day under your parents roof not paying bills is an additional day you can focus on your university (college you folks call it).
Its amazing what a good education will do for you. I wasnt fortunate enough to go straight to college so I had to get a full time job and then go to night school so it took me seven years to graduate.
I got my first bike at age 35 but its worth it. U want your bike compromise with your folks. Make a deal with them. You spend half of your original budget, stick to your financial commitments etc etc.
If you move out you will be worried about rent, electricity etc etc. Thats all time and resource not spend studying. You are making an investment right now by going to college so be wise.
