Potential Rookie here

Plenty of rookies here on or near your current status. I lurked this site for a while myself until I decided it was best for my family to be. I am currently in school myself so I can't offer much wisdom of the industry from personal experience, but there's years of experience between the guys and gals here. Guess we'll be done around the same time as I got about 3 weeks left. Best of luck to you!

Indeed you'll probably get done before me, I don't really know exactly when I will star my Schooling but I'm hoping within the next 3 weeks, right now I am in the process of just saving some money before I go, but If I could I'd go as early as tomorrow and start.

Potential Rookie here

Hello everyone, my name is Kenneth I've been on this site reading tons of articles for about 2 weeks. I left my job about 2 weeks, and I've found myself just obsessing over the career of being a trucker and having a new life. I'm only 23 years old never made more than $9.00 and hour for a job. Reason being. never got my GED or HS Diploma. Honestly never really wanted to get one as I felt college was a waste and as immature as it may sound I want money NOW I don't wanna go to school for 5-10 years to be making the money that'd id like to have now. I feel like trucking may be my calling, I just wanted to say i've spent countless nights reading many helpful articles hours on end just educating myself and trying to learn everything and anything. to everyone here that's helped me and made me feel more confident in this career from your articles thank you, and to the owner of this site thank you especially, I've only been on here for 2 weeks(unregistered) but I feel like it's been way longer than that. I will be attending a school in Tupelo, Mississippi in a few weeks from now, 3 weeks away from home and learning, and the instructor who spoke with me told me I'd probably already have a guaranteed position with Schneider which made me feel even greater. Sorry for this Novel I've written here I just wanted to let everyone know I'm ready to be a part of this world of trucking and I'm ready to go all in! Hope you guys are okay with another Rookie joining in!
