Banker and I'm not. I work to sustain my life and for the benefits obviously. All else for me right now literally goes to crypto and my house I just bought.

inb4 hurrrr renting is better than buying
No. I'll never live next to anyone again. Having a country house is god-tier.

I work as a waiter in a hotel.

I get no respect from the customer or my boss. Everyone at work is an insufferable normie that likes to take selfies all the time.

I'm a student, when I get out I'll probably be in an extremely stressful job because I'm a stupid autist so I'm trying to make phone apps and crypto investments to avoid what is going to be LITERAL hell for me for about ~40 years

I work at a community college answering admissions and financial aid questions in a call center.

Essentially I browse reddit for 7 hours a day cause it's pretty slow and I'm not about to go on Veeky Forums at work.

Fiancee's dad is hooking me up with a full time job working for the gubmen water department. I'll take a $2-4 pay cut hourly but work 40 hours a week instead of 29, and get gubmen benefits instead of literally nothing. Just won't have to talk to anyone besides my coworkers, so I'm happy about that.

Pay jumps $8 after I pass a 90 day certification. Can't wait.

HVAC Technician. It's easy to pull $150k/year here if you are willing to work, more jobs then technicians especially in the summer.

I invest in crypto. I was actually exposed to it on the job, did a bunch of HVAC work for a very large Bitcoin mine a few years ago and obviously peaked my interest. Made more this year in crypto then I did my job. Accountant isn't too happy and it's not even the second tax quarter.

I'm a college student but I work as a parking attendant for $11 an hour.
It's decent enough and I get enough grants and scholarships that is just extra money to throw into crypto.

I love this job. It's fucking awesome, and when I get out I have the potential to go airlines, defense industry, or just stay in and earn bank.

Only complaint is that depending on what's going on I'll be gone all the time, and it's extremely hard to maintain a relationship with this lifestyle. Sometimes you get stationed in a complete shithole and it's a few hours drive to civilization for some sanity (experiencing this right now).

Welder

trying to escape by getting into Crypto. Even if I cant fully escape, I can start welding at an easier place.

Only problem is I dont know how to get started in Crypto and I feel like if I google answers they will be setting me up to fall for some scams

How's welding? What are the pros and cons? It's always seemed pretty cool to me.

Honestly, just go to coinbase if you're not too tech savvy. Super easy way to get into crypto. I'd get in sooner than later if I were you, shit's poised to moon! Especially ETH imo.

Start off by cramming investopedia vids when you aren't tired. Learn some basic finance stuff. Crack open your high school economics text if you still have it. Hunt down some PDFs. You can search google specifically for PDFs by typing filetype:pdf before your search term. Share your knowledge with others in knowledge share threads. Don't succumb to forces that make you more forgetful (alcohol, etc.)

If you mind all this, you'll be doing better than me. The best teachers are hypocrites, and the best learners have no time to teach.

Pros
The highly skilled work (Pipe, Underwater, Military Support) all pay over 100k
cheap and easy to learn
As of right now, easy to find a shop hiring welders

Cons
Most welders start in a shit shop for shit pay
Shittier shops usually just toss a fan next to you and call it good ventilation
High paying work usually requires you to travel around and move for work

investopedia
Thanks

Forensic investigator for a law firm - trying to sneak my way into some sort of senior ex-intelligence consultancy somehow.

Don't really give a fuck about the money I just want to know how the world actually works.

Don't really give a fuck about the money so much as understanding how the world really works, money tends to follow that anyway.
