I'm struggling with what I want to go to school for. Part of me says Auto tech and be a mechanic but that shit is so expensive cuz of the tools and shit. Another part says plumber cuz it's easy to get into. I dunno. Life is hard ;-;
Make a personal list of the pros and cons of each. Decide based on that.
Which decision do you think you'll be happier with say, 5 years down the line?

When I was in school for diesel tech a few of us received cards for 50% off our first order at Sears.  I applied for a Sears credit card and bought the largest Craftsmen set they had (ratchets, sockets, wrenches/ratcheting wrenches, various other tools, literally the works) with no interest rates, perhaps wherever you go may have the same sort of deal.  Their lowest accepted payment is like $25 a month.  Specialty tools you just buy as you need, and borrow from coworkers if you're desperate.  Go on craigslist and buy a decent cabinet, and go to Harbor Freight for the rest.  I know everyone really bags on their tools, but if you take care of them they'll last.. and even if they don't, most of their stuff has a lifetime warranty.  I bought a DA, die grinder, air hammer and a few other air tools from them a few years ago and they all still work like new.  I'd also highly suggest buying things like impact sockets and 1"+ wrenches from them.  Their prices are impossible to beat, especially when you're just starting out.

And it really goes without saying, but stay away from the Snap-On and Mac tool trucks your first couple of years on the job.  You might feel like a badass with the top-tier tools, but what you're paying for them really isn't worth it yet.

Hey everyone if you're reading this at all.  If anyone wants to get in touch, even if only to say hi, please do.  My steam is neonrideraryeh, I'm on that all the time I'm online.  I'm not really on skype anymore.  You could find me on discord sometimes if you want to add me, same username there too on everything.  Also on reddit if anyone wants to PM since I often don't remember to show up on this forum.  I don't check it too often and still figuring out how it works, but I have twitter as well, also a facebook but again not on it often.

My country lay within a vast desert. When the sun rose into the sky, a burning wind punished my lands, searing the world. And when the moon climbed into the dark of night, a frigid gale pierced our homes. No matter when it came the wind carried the same thing... Death. But the winds that blew across the green fields of Hyrule brought something other than suffering and ruin. I coveted that wind, I suppose. It can only be called fate... That here, I would again gather the three with the crests... That I should lay my hand on that which grants the wishes of the beholder... That when power, wisdom, and courage come together, the gods would have no choice but to come down... The power of the gods... The Triforce! He who touches it will have whatever he desires granted!

To tell you the truth, I don't even know where that stereotype came from.  Literally every tool I've bought there still works.  In high school they were having a sale for a like 300+ piece socket/wrench set for somewhere around $130.  Pretty much an impossible deal to pass up, and all of my ratchets from that set still surprisingly work, they're just my home shop beaters. 

Buuuuut there is sort of an exception.  Their HVLP guns aren't so great.  I've owned about five of them and use them just to spray adhesives.  They're cheap enough that I'll just buy them and use em a few times then just throw them away.

Just an idea I had. I'm sure a fair few of you have Discord if you're still active in online communities etc. I've made one that I'm gonna idle in if anyone wants to join. If we get a few people in it could end up pretty fun!

I'm also on this now, so please everybody feel free to visit.  Maybe this community can live on slightly via the discord chat.  Spread the link around to others you've kept contact with too maybe.  Sometimes it's easier to drop a post in a chatroom tab than visit the forum, it seems.
