I've never had a "real job", so don't worry. Just find something you're good at, that pays well, and get REALLY good at it.

Got several grand invested in photography, girlfriend left me a week ago, I have 3 companies wanting me to shoot for them.

Paintball field called me back saying they wanted to hire me as well as pay me for my time of taking photos, the photos they want for advertising as well as for any events that are hosted at their field.

If colleges accepted kids that struggle in high school yea. I'm lucky if I can get into a community college :/

What sucks is this is my senior year and I highly doubt I'm graduating. Kinda relying on my computer experience/ knowledge and photography to get me into a job/ career.

Nice!

Since we are opening a new store next year, im hoping that i will get promoted to that store as a dept. manager since no other people have any skill in ordering and other dairy stuff that is needed to be a manager. BUT, since ive only had this spot for 4 months, there is a chance that they wont think its enough experience to move into it.(even though ive been doing this for over 5 years now...)
guess i gotta wait and see.

Oh...well, I don't know your story or what you've been through. My best advice is to finish out senior year strong, regardless of your academic goals. Even if you do not plan on going to college, make your self proud! Give this last semester your best and do well!

If you don't mind me asking, what is going on with you (school wise)?

Yeah buddy! Prospects are looking good at the moment. Still have: polygraph, psychological evaluation, medical physical, and final interview.
It's a very long process, but it is allowing me to start my career at a young age and gain experience. I'm very thankful for that!

Nice, hopefully they will promote you! Is the new store near you?

Well coming from someone who dropped out of college, if you aren't going to go the college path, make sure photography is really what you want to do and are ready to make it into a business.

ADHD, no support at home or school. Nevada is ranked 50th in education.

Teachers don't teach, students don't learn.

Edit so no double post,

It has really sparked a lot of interest these past few weeks and I really do enjoy it.

I believe GA is 48th or 49th? Which makes dat dere high achiever status very easy to obtain. Lol
When I was able to read by 10th grade, they stuck a Valedictorian patch on me and immediately graduated me so I could go teach at the local University. Just kidding.

Also, I agree. If you are not 100% sure about college, don't waste your time or money. If you try the "work" thing and that doesn't work out, then give community college/tech school a chance!

That's still not bad! Saves you gas money, you get to hangout in the comfort of your own home, and you get paid to do what you enjoy. Sign me up! haha

its about 10 minutes further than my current drive to work(would be about 30 minutes). Nothing horrible, and since id get a raise AND an extra $110 a week, itd make up for it.

Just find something you truly like. I totally skipped college. Decided i needed a years break, and worked. Worked as much as i could(was still part time), and finally came to realize, i like working more than school, so i pushed for full time.
Eventually, i will probably need to go back, but i still dont know what i would want to go for(and im going to be 22....) so i am in no rush to go back.
Just stay focused, and try your damnist to graduate.
Even if your GPA isnt great, college placement tests can make up for that, especially if you go to a local community college
