RE: how do you make ends meet?
I work in a machine shop putting inventory away. It barely pays the bills and is a dead-end job. However, I'm also attending night school and the Navy is paying for all of it through the GI Bill. The bill also gives me a Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH for short). I take home about $1,300 a month from my job and the GI Bill gives me a check for $1,350 per month, plus the occasional school book allowance which is $250 every time a new semester starts.

Military service was definitely worth it.

RE: how do you make ends meet?
I keep track of the money going in an out for a small business (about 250 employees) that does lab tests and we have techs that travel around and draw blood and collect other stuff and a team of traveling X-Ray and ultrasound techs. It's my job to make sure all the employees and all the bills get paid.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

But I'm still the best debugger in the organization. So they still come to me when they can't figure out what they fucking did wrong.

Guess it's Mr. Girlyman now. Undecided

Do you need a degree for that?

I've changed my mind about you. it seems like you are a warrior. Your Mother was abusive towards you even in her last years, yet you were independent , self-sufficient, provided for multiple children while going to school and working fulltime while going to school and just recently got a degree? Wow! Correct me if I'm wrong.

RE: how do you make ends meet?
Is that even possible? Making ends meet...... They can *meet*???

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

If you would've stopped right there, WickedCock, it would've been a decent post. Instead you made it creepy.
