I am lost what do I do
I’m 21 Years young just recently joined a good union job great pay and benefits. I’ve been with my gf for 3 Years already. I want to go to college and then attend a university. I have no car payment. no credit etc. with this job I plant to start my credit and purchase a economic car or truck in my price range but a little less. I’m good with money and i have saved 25,000 from my last jobs in construction. I soon want to get married and have kids. I didn’t grow up with two parents. Single mom so I always knew going to college wasn’t an option. Now that I’m growing I know what I want to do and how I want to perceive it but I’m a bit lost and confused as to am I doing the right thing? I plan on staying in this union job for at least 2 Years in two years I will be 23, is that too late to start school? My mom always says “it’s never too late”. I don’t live in the best neighborhood but we’ve been renting for awhile so now I want something of mine, but I also know to use living with my mom to my advantage to save for some college and double my money to attend school full time. Eventually it will be my time to start a life. I don’t like this feeling of felling like I’m doing wrong, feeling stuck, worry, or stressed because I’ll be 27 or 28 and burly done with school. Some people think I’m crazy in my family for not just getting married and buying a house but honestly I see no rush. My dad always taught to love what you do and do what you love. I’ve learned to enjoy where I’m at even if it meant struggles etc. I have no rush or anticipation in purchasing a home. Or getting married or have kids. I’m young and I’m very ambitious as of now. Any advice or puns intended? Any opinions?
