What type of career should I look into?
I'm good with my hands I have a very good under standing of how mechanical mechanisms work by looking at them and taking them apart. I'm good with computers. I can also weld with a mig welder and I have experience with engines and some body work but I'm not very good at math I had to drop out of collage because I could not pass calculus. But heir is the thing that gets me after what I described I should like to fix cars but I had a job as a mechanic and I hatted it the pay was good but the job was just not for me. Maybe if I could try a job in customizing cars or some thing but I still don't know what type of field. Can you come up with something it doesn't have to be with cars it can be with lots of different things. Right know I have a crapy job at ACE hard ware and I hate it. They promoted me to paint manager two months ago but I didn't get any raize so that alone just p****d me off. I need a better job I would like to be able to live on my own some time this decade. I'm 21 years old and would like to be making $900--$1,200 a week. for starters.

I'm training to become a pilot and think you should look into it. I'm not good at math either- terribly afraid of it to be honest- and have found that it's not a problem. Flying is a joy!
