Hello, my name is Luke Ryan. I am in my mid-20s, and here’s a little about my situation:
I have picked all the wrong choices when it came to going down a career path and I honestly think that it’s for the better. Simply put, I am not the type of person that is meant for a nine to five. However, my current finacial situation tells me otherwise, and so, I have stuck with temporary work to come up with some cash. It’s all great and all, but now with the engine of my ’09 Subaru Forester has completely gave out, it has forced me to look for a new car.
I’m thinking about from the range of $2k to $4k for a new car. I was thinking about keeping the car and just installing a new engine, but most of the parts are already completely rusted and not really kept in great shape from the previous owners that it just seems more beneficial to scrap the car at a junkyard and use the money towards a new car and/or monthly bills. I am looking at a stay at home job, which I will talk about in the next paragraph. But I do want to bring up that I had a DUI back in 2015 and hadn’t had a car again until 2019. During the timeframe I was jumping from location to location and had to completely rely on walking, biking, and/or bus transit as my forms of transportation. When the summer of 2019 came around, I had some money to spend on a car. However, part of the DUI conviction was that I had to have an interlock in my car for the timespan of two years. And I had to have my parents help me out because the cost of having an interlock is absolutely absurd! I NEED to have a car in order for me to complete my interlock program that I am enrolled in and for me to go back to temp work. Now, I said in the previous paragraph that I wasn’t meant for a nine to five? Well hear me out.
I am looking into starting video game streaming through the streaming service, Twitch. It’s a highly competitive field for new fish that are trying to kick start their careers in the social media world. You have your entire spectrum of streamers, video game professionals, content creators, and personalities. It’s a highly competitive field, but I feel as though that I have a brand that I’m able to push to be apart of the wave. Being a streamer and/or content creator has been something that I’ve been passionate for for sometime since I was younger. It’s something that had inspired me to keep working a nine to five, so that I was able to save up some money to invest in.
I’ll keep this short. The problem is, is now with my car completely busted. I am forced to back peddle and have to fork out for a new car while still making payments. Meaning that I do in fact need the money for a new used car. But also, I want to try and get a good start on a career path that I’ve wanted for such an incredible amount of time, and so that I don’t have to go back to working a nine to five.
I am looking at $2 to $4k for a car replacement. And for help on starting my new business, I am looking at between $1k to $10k. It would be much appreciated!
