• Apologies for the issue with a bizarre redirect on the site earlier today. There was a large server update and an error in an IP address had the traffic routing wrongly. No hacking or anything nefarious and nothing to worry about. Sorry for any stress/anxiety caused. Very best wishes - SF Admin

Hello all. New to the forum.
I'm a 42 yr old auto-mechanic living in Hutto, Tx.
1. I'm struggling to get my truck (a 94 F150) street worthy. I don't make a lot of money per week. I'm seriously undervalued at work, even though I work the hardest. I have my own tools, so I rarely use my boss's tools. I live right across the street from the shop, so, I'm basically on call.
2. I'm trying to maintain a potted garden. Some of the plants are doing okay. I need to build a greenhouse, but, I don't have the money.
3. I need to register my truck, but I don't have the time or the money.
4. It doesn't seem to matter how considerate that I am of others, I'm always stepped on, or ignored.

At this point, my ONLY goal is to get away from people. So, I need to 1. Get my truck street worthy, 2. Get my potted garden growing, 3. Gather whatever other supplies, and 4. Find a good place for bushcrafting.

I do see the irony in coming to people for help to get away from people. But I don't have any other option.

Can you get a better paying job?

Hi and welcome @94F150I6, glad you found SF, it's a lovely supportive place. I really like your goals, I hope you can achieve them. I had to look up bushcrafting, that looks really interesting. Hmm, no.4 - well I would say that these two things often go together. Maybe it's time to put yourself first. Be nice but set boundaries. Let people down a couple of times (if it doesn't affect your job of course). I managed to get away from people because I had so many bad neighbours in my life and now I live in the countryside. But the neighbours across the field took a dislike without even talking to me! *facepalm It's really hard to get away, but they can be kept at a good distance! Anyway, I hope you will like it here.
