If youre trying to make a living off coding in basic you're going to have a hard time. Would it be possible to just take a few courses to learn a more advanced language?

Not likely. But I could learn a more advanced language on my own but I dont really have time or money for school mainly money.

You can always find a way to go to college today.

Your chances of becoming a successful indie are, unfortunately, very low - at least for while before you gain a reputation and a set of completed and marketed games. It's a bit discouraging, but remember that many people HAVE done it (look at Steve Pavlina), so you should be able to given enough time.

.. but you don't have the time .. ?

I think you should truly consider looking into college - even a community college would be better than nothing. There are so many loans, scholarships and free ways to pay for college that it is practically ridiculous not to look into it. Most of these "scholarships" only require you to take the time to write an essay and complete out a few forms.

Anyway, good luck and keep us posted.

Make games for the fun of it. That way you will succeed without having to sell a single game. And if you do manage to sell some games, that would be the icing on the cake.
