Keep your job.
you'll be lucky if you find another one (Depending on where you live)
In California, if you lose your job, well good luck finding a job anytime soon.

For a GED the only way you're going to make yourself out of something is by either:
Making your way up through hard work in your company.
Finding something you're EXTREMELY skilled at.
Something that nobody wants to do.

sit online with a guitar and learn to play in a couple days. sit on street corners dressed like a hipster with a hat and make money on the corner!
I'm about to go do that with my 12 string soon if I don't get a job.

Start applying at other places and tell them you would just need to give notice before starting. Personally I appreciate being told that someone has to fulfill a commitment at their current job before changing because generally, I can assume I will receive the same respect if they choose to leave.

No harm in applying. If you land something then great. If not, well at least you know this is your only option for now.

I don't wanna sound like a dick, but maybe you should have thought about this before you dropped out of hs.

I know what GED is, and it sounds like you do too. Apply for jobs that only requires a high school education...

Take out loans and go to college. You can apply for stafford and perkins government loans. You should also get on food stamps and welfare for the time being, seeing as this isn't working out for you too well. If your credits fucked and your already in debt you blew that chance I guess.

Working in restaurant kitchens is pretty fun...I do it to make cash money on the side (in college). It's pretty easy to get promoted, you just have to work with them for awhile...It's a pretty fun place to work though. Fast paced, tough, but satisfying. And you can learn some tastilicious recipes. And they rarely, if ever, drug test. And I've found a lot of cooks in the food industry smoke weed or are totally chill with it.
