    "Wisdom" is, as far as I can tell, the only thing the Bible commands us to "get" --- Get wisdom, get understanding... and, the promise that, if we lack wisdom, ask God, and he'll give it to us liberally.

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    I agree wholeheartedly on getting a job. My college schedule is designed for a job. I think I need to get serious and talk to my grandpa about that. He can help me find a job.

    Yes, it is always good to be self-supporting. I wish more people would realize this and embrace hard work and productivity. Not everyone is in a position to do this, of course, but as soon as you can, it will afford you the opportunity to grow in wisdom and stature at an accelerated rate.
    βλέπομεν γὰρ ἄρτι δι᾿ ἐσόπτρου ἐν αἰνίγματι, τότε δὲ πρόσωπον πρὸς πρόσωπον
    ἄρτι γινώσκω ἐκ μέρους, τότε δὲ ἐπιγνώσομαι καθὼς καὶ ἐπεγνώσθην.

    אָכֵ֕ן אַתָּ֖ה אֵ֣ל מִסְתַּתֵּ֑ר אֱלֹהֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל מוֹשִֽׁיעַ׃

    One aspect of that wrt to TW's situation is that parents just don't tend to take what their children say all that seriously while they are still living under their roof. You need to show that your a mature, responsible adult before that will ever change.

    You know getting a job could help me show them hiw much I have matured.

    If I can show them that level of responsibility they might take me more seriously
