PREFACE: Here's the deal, finally worked it out with one of my distant parents to fill out a FASA form, so I can get some support from the government with college tution. I've been accepted into a community college [2year, then 2 at a university]. Currently, I have no credit, no car, a steady standard job, and the basic living material. GOALS/PAYMENTS: First I'll need housing, since the community college does'nt offer it, I'll be forced to get an apartment; [no freinds from roomies either.] Next, I'll need a car to get to school, and finally the big one money to pay off college tution. Now, considering I have 3 more months left of "free" housing from another close relative, and the rest of the summer with a grandparent I have a short time to get things worked out before I'm homeless. What I need to do is open a credit card and start building credit, but what should I do for all other expenses?. Is it possible for me to work while in school, and afford everything else at the same time, I've read stories it is, but I'm doing this all on my OWN with NO support. I want to be something, and everyday I strive to say up money into my savings/checking account to hopefully nic off that huge bill at end, I'm in need of some serious suggestions.. Where do I start with my current foundation of dreams and plans. [Also if it matters, I've alot of new companies/business ideas I want to start at the same time, and for four years now I told myself I should be motivation to achieve them. Alone, it will take around 2 more months to fund these projects. And if possible, they could be something to fall back on, money wise.] Thanks OT, with regards. .
