Everything has its season... others just move in cycles. Down for the count or merely a recession?

Get your butt down to your local (or prospective) institute of higher learning and request to speak with a guidance or admissions person. They will be exponentially more helpful than any generic advice you could get here. Schools differ, so the best source would be the school you are looking to attend.

Well good to hear. Glad you found some lucrative gigs through this forum.
Surprised there hasn't been a clamoring to enter this, unless all the folks entering so far have been doing so via PM.
What the heck, here's an entry and free bump -

You should keep Dictionary.com up on the opposite screen.

A socially awkward 27-something year old and a formerly abused 25 year old single mother who lost custody of her child and continues to spend her limited income on booze and cigarettes and has lofty ambitions of becoming a tattoo artist. This has quality relationship written all over it, and no way it could end badly...
I know you, and probably many folks on this forum, will dislike this and regard me as the arrogant killjoy, but this comes from a position of experience. There are so many red flags from just the few details you've shared so far it is not even funny. It's a textbook case, something I've seen during my four deployments being in charge of a group of young enlisted men. They get wrapped up in a whirlwind relationship, swear they've found a stripper with a heart of gold, and fall head over heels. And none, I repeat none, of them ended well.
No matter how I present my experience, wisdom, life experience, and advice, you will probably roll your eyes, grit your teeth, and tell me I just don't understand - so I'll save my fingers from typing out valuable knowledge that will only fall on deaf ears. Instead I'll just keep it quick and simple - take it slow, don't get in a hurry, and always position yourself to protect yourself and your best interests (legally, financially, spiritually, and emotionally). Doing this will not only make sure you are secure and taken care of, but by proxy the person you are pursuing a relationship with, will be better off - either by having a stable, grounded, and established person in you or by insulating yourself from their destructive and wayward behaviors.
Stay calm, play it cool, and let what happens happen. Best of luck to you.

Maybe when the B-29 pilots practiced for months to take off of the flight deck of the aircraft carriers (which were way too small for the planes) to bomb Tokyo, just to buy time for the island-hopping troops who needed a foothold, all the while knowing they couldn't bring enough fuel to make it back... They did it for us.
No. You have your aircraft crossed. This is a B-29. It did not even participate in aircraft carrier feasibility studies.
This is a B-25. It was part of a study into the feasibility of carrier operations, which eventually became part of the more well known "Doolittle Raid" and "Doolittle Tokyo Raiders".
Very different aircraft and airframes.

Can't go wrong with " Have you ever seen a grown man naked?"

I've seen similar offerings here in the States in which they present the offering primarily as a party rental akin to limousine rentals or bounce house rentals. They come, set everything up, you play until your eyes bleed during the prescribed rented time, then they handle the clean up.
So I guess what I am suggesting is, for you to seek out people who already operate the same or very similar services and bend their ears for tips, tricks, and opinions as to what may or may not work in your market area.
In order to break into an established niche market where there are already established players you'll need to identify some area where you believe current providers are lacking; something not being done or being done poorly and offer it or offer it in a superior manner.
Best of luck with your endeavor.
