Gator Posted May 10, 2016 Share Posted May 10, 2016 copying this from a journal i posted on fa because i'm too lazy to think of a way to reword everything tbh i will try to keep this as brief as possible. -i NEED a driver's license, liability insurance, and a car. *insurance is required to get a license *can't get a damn insurance quote for shit, especially since i don't own a car *have no idea how to go about buying a car without having insurance or a license first -i NEED to move to another town, preferably by or before next year, so that i can start school. *can't move without having a job lined up, but can't really expect to get hired there while i'm living over an hour away, and good luck finding the time to drive to interviews while working my current job lol *could possibly transfer with my current job, but would have to wait at least six months and pray the other location had an opening for me *maybe just live in car for a while after i get one idk, won't be a very big car though -i NEED to see a doctor about some other issues and see about getting a prescription, but with all the other things i need to do and changes that need to be made, i don't see any way of doing that any time soon, so i guess it'll have to wait until i've got all this sorted out and have my own health insurance or something. -i WANT to move out of my grandma's house and into an apartment nearby in the meantime, because an adult should have some damn independence ffs. *apartment here within walking distance of my job is dangerous and in danger of being shut down *need to get car stuff figured out first so i could drive to work and shit -i WANT to get my license as soon as possible, but i have not been allowed to practice driving despite having a permit for several years... so -i MIGHT need to also buy driving lessons, which would take not just a big chunk of my almost nonexistent money, but also my almost nonexistent time. -i HAVE been on the road once or twice, and around a parking lot or three, but aside from the driver's ed i took in high school a thousand years ago, i have had very little driving experience and pretty much none that is very recent... so i have no idea how i'd fare on the driving test. -i HAVE a job at long last, but it's only part time and i'm making around a thousand bucks a month at most. dividing that between groceries, car insurance, rent, utilities, gas money, medications, and anything else that might come up will not be easy... but i think it's doable. *what is not doable is all that plus health insurance, which i will also need at some point. *i don't think i can get any kind of assistance (except income-based rent) while i'm married, despite living separately and having separate finances. the only thing my spouse and i share is the health insurance, which i will need to replace as soon as i'm able so that we can finally get divorced. *but part-timers don't get health benefits, at least not at this job, and i'll probably have to hold onto this job for a long time just to be able to do anything else that i need. i really wanted to stay where i was at and save more money so i could get out of town sooner, but i just don't think living with family is going to work out for me much longer. i'm trying my damnedest, but i've been here much too long as it is, and in all honesty i don't think my mental health can take the same beating for much longer. so the point is, i have a LOT of things i need to do and figure out, but i'm getting overwhelmed because i don't really know where to start or how to go about a lot of these things. if anyone has any suggestions or advice, i'm all ears.
