The Question Club
TQC, my mind is racing and I need some random advice from the internet on a slew of random things.|
I think I'm going to go ahead and move to Vegas. It's such a rash decision, but I'm tired of home life, tired of the Midwest, and tired of taking care of my Mom after her divorce. I think she's finally come to terms with everything and has completely moved on - I think. My best friend lives there so I won't be alone at all, and I want to move forward with my future already. I'm one of those annoyingly anxious kids ready to leave her teenage years behind. I have a meeting tomorrow at my college to talk about transferring.
1. Did you ever have to take care of a parent? Do you have any stories? Was it a good, or bad experience? I spent 2 years of my life, from 17 to 19, caring for my mother. In a way, I think it helped me grow up a lot faster than I would have on my own. Despite that... I'm happy to be putting these two years behind me now.
2. What are your experiences with loans? What did you find worked best for you? I applied for a Chase loan by myself - and was denied. Then with my mom as a co-signer - and was denied (she just got her own credit 12 months ago, and she needs 21 months of credit to apply) Then with my grandma - and no answer yet. I'm getting anxious and stressed about it :(
3. Those of you from/familiar with Vegas - Despite working and going to school, what is there to do for someone who isn't 21, doesn't really care to party and mostly enjoys nature and whatnot? Are there any notable sites in Southern Nevada besides The Strip? Where can I get away? I'm a big outdoorsy person. Every evening, my dog and I sit on my porch and watch the night roll in over a corn field and a cup of tea. It's wonderful.
4. When you were 19, going on 20, what were you doing? What were your ideas for your future? Did you act on them ASAP, or did you just let time slide and let whatever happened, happen? If you're younger than 19, do you think you have a grasp on your future?
