Default I have a lot on my mind

For the passed 2 weeks I have been thinking of what to do with my life. I have thought about whating it out for my license to be reinstated but that wont be until 2009 and that is a long wait to be trying to make a career out of truck driving. Then I thought about going to school to study crimainal justice and become a state trooper. Either way I have to wait until my licesne is back together. Then I was thinking about temaing up with my boss and riding with him and making moves unloading the trailer to make some money but he agreed to a certain extent. It wont be a regualr job like it used to be because he only has one truck now and wont be making hard runs like we used too. So I planned on saving as much as i can because I am trying to save on getting my own truck. I figure, even though I cant drive the truck when I get it, I can hire someone and still make money on the runs. Soon, I hope I can get a regualr job and save more money. I still want to go to school right but I just have to put it on hold again.

What about just being a beat cop until you get your license back?

I doubt you can. Most police, troopers especially, have to be able to drive courses and such. Depending (because I either don't know, or have forgotten) on why you don't have your drivers license in the first place, you might have a hard time getting into an academy.

I also forgot to mention that I wont be buying a car for a while uuntil I get my business at least. This is going to be a real test for me. I feel if i buy a car then i just stole my own money. I want to have it all for the truck before I do anything else with it.

Being in law enforment without a license and with your situation will be impossible. There are lots of jobs out there. Just find something that suits you, and you like.

Being in the Chicago area, couldn't you be a mounted cop? (Yes we have cops on horses in Chicago...SO WATCH OUT!)

Otherwise find a simple factory job to build up some cashflow.
