I'm a 17 year old who's a senior in high school. I have an opportunity most don't have - I'm friends with someone who's big as a content creator, close friends, and have been offered the guest room of his house to be a video editor for

Your high school diploma will be a gateway, a stepping stone to future successes, no matter what field you go into, it will expand your options and desirability. If you are doing badly, this needs to be addressed and fixed, hopefully, rather than just giving up. Talk to your school counselor about this. You can arrange to get a GED, which will give you that diploma , without going further in school, talk to your counselor about this, too. Because you are still underage, your parents could legally have you found and brought back, as a a runaway. IF you go with someone else, its possible they might be charged with kidnapping across a state line of a minor, big trouble. Since he doesn't know your real age, this would be a terrible thing for him and it would be your fault. I'm sorry you have a bad time both at school and at home, but you are not far away from turning 18, or from graduating, (again, talk to your counselor!), if you can stick it out. Opportunities will continue to be there for you to follow your interests, only with greater power and independence after you achieve both these goals. Please don't mess it up, if you follow your desires to drop out and to go illegally with your "friend", you could really end up screwing up not only his life, but yours, as well. Good luck and good wishes,

Get a GED and MOVE OUT.

Ah, another spoiled, immature brat who thinks the world owes him a living and who wants to run away and join the modern equivalent of the circus in order to prove his "manhood". NOT. Come ON, Jordan. Where is your BRAIN? Because you clearly AREN'T USING IT. The only thing that running away will do is get you a well deserved criminal RECORD. Which in turn will prevent you from getting into college ( which is what you should be FOCUSING ON RIGHT NOW) or being able to get a job that actually PAYS anything decent. Video game editing isn't a real job. It's more of a hobby for rich kids, which YOU AREN'T. Unless you want to spend the rest of your life working as a greeter at Wal Mart, or flipping burgers at Mickey D's, then you need to STAY IN SCHOOL, get your diploma, and work on getting a college degree which will let you find sustainable employment as an adult.

And have you even stopped to consider how your parents will react to what you're planning to do? My thinking is that they'll be mighty MAD at you, and for good reason. They could easily DISOWN you, too, and then where will you be?? You also need to get out of your fantasy world. California and New York are the two most expensive places to live in the US. And if you want to make it in the video game industry, you're going to have to go to California. This "guy" you know isn't going to let you mooch off of him forever, Jordan. And if you screw up and don't do what he tells you, then you'll likely find yourself out on the road on your *** in short order. It's one thing to be without a job- most people can manage that for a short while. But being without a job AND A PLACE TO LIVE is a whole other ball game, and one that I SERIOUSLY DOUBT you're prepared to deal with. How will you pay for food, rent, and other living expenses, Jordan? What if this guy decides you don't have what he's looking for and shows you the road after you get out there ( which could very well happen)? What are you going to do then? And don't tell me that you'll go running home to mom and dad. Sure, you can try that, but don't be surprised if THEY tell you to get LOST too. So then you'll be homeless and without a job. Not a good place to be in, Jordan.

You need to take a REALITY CHECK here, and do some serious re-thinking about a LOT of things.

Ask him if he will talk to your parents for you. You don't even have to arrange the conversation. You just need to know this man's response. (If he won't, he's a shady guy, and you should avoid him at all costs.)

By making this move "in secret" you are putting yourself at great risk. Not just from this man, but from the legal system. As long as you are under age 18, your parents have every right to call the police, who could pursue you and have your friend arrested as a kidnapper. I'm not joking.

This is a situation in which you have the choice to react as a 17-year old hotheaded, immature brat -- OR a thoughtful, more mature 18-year old.
If this guy really wants you for a video editor, he will still want you when you turn 18 -- when you are free to do as you wish, without worrying about your parents or the legal system. It's LESS THAN A YEAR.

Patience is a sign of maturity. If he wants you, he will wait. If you are serious, you will wait. Get a part time job, and save as much money as you can while you're waiting. You'll need it.

just finish school, you be aight

I would wait until 18 to tell your parents. If not then you're considered a runaway which the police can get a warrant to return you to your home. At the same time, your "friend" will go to jail if he knows about it, but if he doesn't know about it, he'll get a lot of questioning from the police---which won't make him too happy.

At least graduate High School, it's the minimal you can do, because life is hard without an education.

Dont leave school, biggest mistake i ever made!!!
Though if you left without telling anyone you'd probably be reported missing and police would come after you
