Pretty down on life kinda need advice/guidance

What up E46 fanatics, Dont really post much on here, but Im a long time lurker. I know I most likely wont get any reply's but figure'd it worth a try.

Im 27 and do fairly well for myself (all things considered)
I live alone in my own home, small modest 3 bedroom 1 bath house, with 2 HUGE shops/garages out back.
I have a 02 active autowerks supercharged M3, an 02 325ci "m3 clone" and a ford ranger track. Also I have a 250F dirtbike and a 2005 R6 streetbike.

I have no help or assistance from anyone, Like I said above I live alone so unlike most 27 year olds I do not have a second income from a spouse to help me out.
I never went to college only have just a High School diploma and my job is EXTREMELY low end, as in most days after tips I barely break the $7.85 hour minimum wage in ohio.
ANYHOW MY POINT IS:
Most of my friends are approching 30 years old now and most have really begun hitting there stride Financially and me Im really really struggling and losing ground to them monthly it seems. One of my "enemies" from our teenage years just landed a $25 per hour job at Dupont (factory work) 6 months ago, an he just Saturday night picked up a 2009 Black GTR. He also never went to college.\

Most all my friends I've grown up with have a family of there own now and live in $150k.-$200k homes, the ones who are still single and living alone pick up $65k. nissan GTR'S and such.............as for me Im alone, have no life outside of work 45 hours a week, paying monthly bills and mortgage payments, although my credit is outstanding and I've been at my current job for 7 years I am begining to really hate my life and what it has become, and as much as I dearly love my two BMW's and my motorcycle's I always wonder what it is exactly that Im trying to prove by owning them, and to who Im trying to prove it.
I'm out, I gotta work a 12 hour shift tomorrow

Maybe you should prioritize your investments rather than having three cars and two motorcycles while making minimum wage. Maybe it's stating the obvious, but if you want to do better, you should maybe have one bike, one car, and go to school for a more specialized career where you have potential to make more.

What exactly do you want to hear? Becoming financially stable isn't like hitting puberty. It doesn't just happen. You have to work for it.

dude your 27, why are still trying stressing over your high school "enemies"? why do you care what over people do...live your life man, be happy with what you have and just do you.

if you really have no friends and nothing to do beside work go volunteer somewhere, it'll give you something to do and put you around decent people.

you have no extra income....rent out one of those rooms...idk what rent is in ohio but im sure you can get acouple hundred bucks per room, then split up your bills with them.....

Done, fixed all your problems

My Ride: 04 M3 vert
It was a hot summer day and I was in my workout room benching 1200 pounds. My abs were flexing and girls within a 10-mile radius were getting wet. Once I was done with my daily 32-hour workout I called one of the bitches I know, Jessica. She is really ****ing hot and looks like a supermodel. So I got into my Lamborghini Gallardo and revved it up to 40,000 RPM (this is an Italian import with special engine system). I got onto the freeway near my house and threw it into 8th gear, I hit about 600 mph and I could hear the sonic boom as I broke the sound barrier. As I was flooring it on the freeway like a badass, Jessica called me and said she wanted me to **** her. So be it.

I came to a full stop from 700 mph in front of her house. These Ferraris have top-notch brakes, you know. So she gets out of the house and walks up to my Bugatti and starts eyeballing my dick. I could tell she was staring at it because when I looked at her I noticed she was looking at my dick. Booya.

Flash forward 10 minutes later. My 30-inch dick is going inside of her pussy, hitting them walls. I'm holding her entire body up with my left pinky as I'm screwing her and she has 30,000 orgasms. She looks me in the eyes and she says **** me harder, V-TEC just kicked in, yo. I blow my load so hard she falls off my dick. There had to have been about two gallons of cum everywhere. People say I cum like a porn star and I wouldn't disagree with them.

I throw her a towel so she can clean herself up then I do a triple back flip into my Maserati and drive home.

The town I live in is very small, most of the highest paid people in the area are factory workers. Nobody where I live pays more then the factorys in the town. ie: Kenworth truck company, Dupont, Mead paper products, Everyone here live's WAY outside there means in an attempt to gain attention and one up there buddies. (small town syndrome) I myself am guilty of that aswell. The guy who just picked up the GTR lives in the worst part of town and rents a two bedroom house for about $350ish a month. He is keeping the GTR at a friends place who has a garage to store the car in. Its just the way people live in the area.
As for me my house is nice, newer and clean but yet I have no furniture, none I cannot afford it. I have my bed and a mirrior that is all.
The cost of all my "toys" when put together far exceeds the price I paid to buy my house.
Make fun all your guys want it's cool I understand how stupid this must sound but it's my life and I've just come here to get opinions/advice and thats what your giving. No harm no foul

My advice? Go to a trade school. People with a trade are making really good money nowadays.

I'd say you're doing OK. You're in a house of your own, have a job and some cool toys.

If you're worried about furniture, unload that street bike and hit the local furniture shops or Craigslist and fill up that house.

I was going to make a joke about Bon Jovi - Livin on a Prayer at your expense but now I'll just go to sleep feeling guilty and shameful.

Advice:

sell your toys immediately, and your house (unless rent is roughly the same per month as a mortgage) and enroll in trade classes IMMEDIATELY. If it's too embarrassing to do this in your town, MOVE. Come back 1-2 years later for a better job and show up your high school enemies with a better edumacation.

This is an easy solve. DON'T compare yourself to other people. If you are happy with what you have, great. If you want more, then develop a plan to get it (improve yourself, seek new work, etc...)

The last thing you should do is sit around and look at what others are doing. Change comes from within.

For the record none of this is fake or made up nor exaggerated. I guess after rereading it I could see it sounding that way. Ill attach a couple pictures of my home, and bmw's. Some of the OG'S on the forum should recognize both of the cars.

Everybody likes pictures right:

Your setup is not bad. Do what you need to get a better job. It seems that's where your priorities lie.
