ok, so maybe I should have read a little further before I formulated my response.
I know how it feels to not know where you are going. I've been very fortunate in recent past to have found friends I could truely lean on for help.
Not knowing where you're going to live in a short time is hard. But, the options you mentioned sound like a good start.
And, like Chakra said, retail is always an option, especially at this time of year. The biggest shopping days are upon us.
School...that's a subject near and dear to me. I put off going to college after high school because I "needed a break." I never went. If you can work out a way to continue going, you should. The payoff later will be worth it.
Please keep us posted on how you're doing, dear Ralph.
