I don't blame you. It is too expensive to attend college for 4 years, for one thing. Another thing is, colleges have gotten away from substantive education. Trade schools are the thing to consider now. They are schools, BUT THEY are not book work as much. They are 'hands on' learning how to do things with your hands. I went to McDonnell Aircraft factory where they taught me precision machinist skills on both the horizontal and vertical mills. It only took 6 weeks, and was hardly any study in books, other than how to read blue prints, which was simple and quick to learn. They paid ME to learn being a machinist where I worked for more than 5 years, before they lost their contracts for building jet fighter planes for the war effort at that time, in South East Asia area. What type work do you like? Carpenter, painter, roofing work, pluming, technology skills as computer building, repair, etc, or what?
