Now that I'm 18, what jobs are available to me?

I'm turning 18 years old tomorrow. Currently, I am working at a fast food restaurant and honestly, I HATE it. I graduated high school at the age of 16 and I know I should go back to school to get a degree, but I don't see that happening at the present time. I've had a job since I turned 17 and I get paid $7.25 an hour (minimum wage.) I don't see myself moving up in the company as raises are on freeze so I want out quickly! I do NOT want to work with food or near food. I am computer literate and am great with children. I am a very determined, helpful, motivated person and I always succeed in what I do. I want a job that requires no degree. I'm willing to do training, etc. I live in the Grand Prairie/Arlington area in Texas (close to Dallas.) Anyone have any suggestions? Please and thank you.
