Dunno how to say it short
I am hobby mechanic, that can fix anything i want (if i have proper tools) even if i see mechanism for first time i understand how it works. I don't work as mechanic, i do it all only for myself as a hobby or was a hobby...
Had little money then i decided just buy cheapest derivable car then fix it and done this for past 10 years, i don't even enjoy process so much anymore just conditioned myself to be cheap and do everything myself like some addictive thought pattern that i cannot break out of.
Now i see this could be a reason i never had any money to begin with, i am not into material stuff (care less what i drive, where i live, what clothes i wear, what phone i have) its just Los Angeles is expensive city and i barely make enough to survive.
All my time is spent fixing my cheap junk car (no amount of parts or work raise its market value anyway), and since they are old they always break and need service.
Could simply have an office job (i am good computer programmer) and pay off new / lease car and do something more fun with my free time.
Another problem grease and chemicals used to for cars probably not good for my health. I cannot imagine being detoxing when i get all toxins back trough my skin.
Said to myself i will stop this and try other way around, sold my old car and set goal to change my work never tough old car again.
Needed a scooter for a temp delivery job, little money again and lots of tools so i did what i used to bough old scooter that runs thought its like a bicycle easy and quick, but essentially i am doing all same dirty jobs and it take just as much time as servicing old car this was since around January 2018.
