College question

I guess my blue collar life started at 17 doing some part time jobs... I decided to skip college and just carried on working. But I haven't done anything special, I've worked cleaning houses and apartments, doing maintenance work, as a mover, recently doing some construction work... I'm 22 now and I guess I like working "with my hands".Although parents think I should do a 360 and go to college still, I guess that does not matter much since I'm an adult now. Maybe later in life I could take some…See More

Career advice....

Hello guys, I've been working since I was 16 in various things, I'm 22 now and I've been working doing cleaning jobs and the like for a couple of years. Right now, even though I'm kind of okay with that, I think I could make a choice, I could choose to go into college even though a bit later or what I had been thinking is get into constructions jobs and start from the bottom.I guess I don't fancy an office life and prefer to work with my hands, but I guess I don't know what to do now money wise…See More
