Currently sitting behind a desk is boring getting tired of it but I need to stick with the job for now and do what I want part time.

I will try to never sit behind a desk, life is to short personally not to be outside. I couldnt stand working indoors at home depot for a year. Parents just dont get it lets face it you were suppost to go to some high end private college of some sorts... not as your second statement is.

You have no stress.
You live with your parents.
You have nothing to lose.
You lose your job do you lose your house?

I don't have the stress what my brother has with money. His work is very slow and he has lots of payments.

I have job stress from work it effects your body and what goes on in your head.

I would second that. I have learned a lot of things about life from my Grandpa just being around him everyday working. Sometimes things he tells me don't make sense at first but as I mature I understand what he was saying.

You just have to listen to people who have been around the block and keep working hard in what ever you are doing.
