I love it bro, I work for an company that makes antivirus software and other security solutions. I get a lot of freedom to do what I want, study, analyse malware, work with customers on removing infections on their networks. Thats the threat side, the tech support is not as great but still enjoy it. They want me to start monitoring systems in the backend since i'm the only person online when the US guys are asleep. Once i'm done with this I would like to get access to all the networking/security equipment. I get tons of opportunities to learn new things and can always work from home remotely if I need to. Hows the degree treating you and what country are you in?

I can't really say. I made 12K last year having mowed lawns all that summer between counties, and 5K doing handyman repairs a few months back before my accident.
plans for the next 5 years
Use my settlement to fully purchase a nice 5 bedroom mobile-structure home I've already put a down payment on out in DE, and already have contacts to rent out the extra 4 rooms too.

Try hard for an overnight security job so I can work while I work to earn money and save most of said money while the renters hopefully cover the basic expenses/utilities of the home.

Finish designing and producing my game likely having real internet at this point, expecting and aiming to earn around 200K if my marketing falls through and the end result feedback is great as its been so far in development.

Save at least 10K on that security job and begin working on the second game. Likely mobile to see if I could earn a quick buck on that.

Rent or sell that mobile structure home.

Use revenue from both game products, security job, and home to head over to the west coast to seek out opportunity.

Likely buy a plot of land if I can, build and live in a cuckshed upon it.

Continue designing games, hire on employees, start a real company, upgrade cuckshed to a luxury home.

Less than 30k a year
6/10 happiness. Dislike the army but I plan going to school for finance and economics. I study investing and trading recently found out it's a subject that I love doing. I plan on being a trader.
