What are some jobs that pay good money that only require a HS Diploma?

I'm 16 and my life is just starting. I am still working to earn my High School Diploma and would never drop out. But my girlfriend makes a ton of money and I'm kinda embarrassed because I don't have a "Real Job". I volunteer at places and things like that. However I do make money. I'm on a toddler/little kid TV show. It pays pretty well but I want to be taken more seriously. My girlfriend takes me to classy places and all her friends are highly educated like her. I don't want to depend on her money ether. The TV show pays really good but its not a lifetime career that I will be able to do when I'm 35-40. So I wanted to ask what are some lifetime jobs that pay really good money that only require a High School Diploma? By the way, please don't tell me to go to college it will make me feel worse. Iv heard that so many times, people think I should go because I'm around college degree people all the time. My parents are poor and don't have that kind of money to send me their and my girlfriend does not want to pay for it. Besides I'm not that smart everyone thinks I'm stupid.

Almost all jobs that pay well require some kind of training after high school. You could become an electrician, a carpenter, a heating and air conditioning technician, a painter, a plumber, a sheet metal worker, a machinist. These are all jobs that would require that you complete an apprenticeship but not a degree.
