Should I join one of those 4 month programming bootcamps? That could bring in some nice additional income, no?

Yeah... if you are running one of those bootcamps. I'm trying to get VC for my own; we will teach subsistence farmers in Zaire how to code and I will draw a $750,000 non-profit executive director salary from it.

How do I raise kids on this income bros?

One: Kid, cause if you get more than one, they're not going to have the best childhood

two: you become very frugal. You get an apartment. You buy things only on sale, abuse the fuck outta coupons, buy from farmers markets, etc.

three: ditch the woman or get one that is extremely frugal, like what you will become.

To be fair, that's really not awful. I'm a teacher and my salary is 42k right now. Though, I also get three months off every year and can pick up a summer job like summer school or tutoring to make an additional ~8k, putting me somewhere in the 50k range. Also, the benefits are awesome... not sure if you have benefits or not.

Anyway, I still don't think it's that terrible.

Actually, heroin addiction is what taught me to budget money.

No longer a heroin addict, obviously, but in retrospect, heroin addiction wasn't terrible. It was one hell of a learning experience.

I can still squeeze 3 dollars from every penny. That's what you've got to do to afford a $50/day habit.

You can still pull it together. I was going to school to become a teacher and dropped out after failing my student teaching internship.

I became a total junk ball heroin addict waste of space for like three years before pulling it together, going back to school, completing the internship and eventually becoming a teacher.

It seemed impossible at the time, but it came together.

Take a few years off to do your own thing and get your head straight. (I don't recommend becoming a heroin addict unless you want to take the extra long and dangerous scenic route.) Then go back, finish up, and move the fuck on.

This is so fucking spot on it's sad.

Look at these bullshit 'non-profits'. Go to their websites and look at the people behind them. Nothing but greedy fucking opportunists who literally treat these as an ATM and have the nerve to ask you for $10 every time you visit their page.

This shit should be fucking illegal.
