Need Advice (Serious, not bullshit)

Explaining the issue(sorry about the spelling and sentence structure I'm in a hurry)

I'm 20 years old an I'm at a divide in my life

My dad wants me to finish trade school I'm not a book smart person no matter how hard I study or how long I never can get an A or B(I only graduated High school with a 2.3 GPA)

I'm tired of having to depend on other people for me to live my life.

All I really want is just enough money to get by

I'm stubborn and so is my dad. Stubborn + Stubborn = miserable lives

I already hate my mom because of the childhood she took from me.
I don't want to lose the only family I have left, I afraid that ever day longer I live with my dad the farther apart we become.

My question

I'm wondering is it in the best interest for me to take this job and move out?

How long do you have left of trade school and what's the job?

Does it seem like a steady job? Would the money cover food, rent, and bills - would you need flatmates to afford to live out of home?

Tempted to encourage you to go for the job because it could be a positive thing, but also careful not to burn your bridges just in case you run into difficulties.

I have a 2 years left of trade school.

It is a steady job that offers a higher chance to move up in the company. some people that have stayed a year got a position that paid $18 an hour.

The starting wage is $11 hour and there is an apartment I've been looking at that is $525 a month including utilities (not cable or internet) i have a moped that I will only have to fill up once a month the apartment is only 5 miles away and Walmart is right down the road.

Thank you for the advice

Lucretia, I would advise you to get the job and move out. You won't lose your dad. In fact you might even become closer once you start to miss each other.

Can you finish trade school later? I found that I got along with my family better once we moved out - my brother and I were always fighting and he was often fighting with my parents because while he lived in their house they expected him to obey their rules - sound familiar?

It will be hard at first but nothing beats having your own space, peace and quiet, or being able to do what you want when you want.

I'm with Stormbringer on this. Also, is there a possibility for you to get a paying internship? Also, if you don't make enough in a month, it's possible for you to receive temporary state benefits for food. I'm not going to b.s. you here, because you'll have to really penny pinch for a while and not be social either.

I will say finish trade school. Its a pain now, But you will make more money in the long run and that will get you more Independence later.
I hate to say money matters but it really does. You want all the options you can get.
Remember your father is in your corner. Try to cut a deal with him, You go to school he gets off your back about what ever he bugs you about.
