    Fair play to you that is very impressive and it's just a shame that more young people don't grow a pair like you and get out there.

    Going out on your own is an incredibly difficult step to take and one that a lot of people just won't do. I kept putting it off and off for years. One thing lead to another and I just though "why not?"...

    Same as you ryan, when I was 17 i was so different to now, like when i took driving lessons at 21 passed at 22(first time) it was right time of my life, doing this is right time of my life too.
    Now I can get on and get some money rolling in, and get my own place! instead of being stuck on the dole at my parents lol
