I didn't hate my job or anything, but the things that kept me sane are no longer there. they treated me great but my friends like shit and fired them all. work became rather lonely. So where do I go from here? I have a few options... 1. move to a foreign country to teach english. it's going to be basically minimum wage so that sucks but this is what i wanted to do before i moved back home a few months ago. if i run out of money, oh well, sayonara world 2. rent a cabin in the woods, finish my book, and then off myself. hopefully that will help sell a tonne of books and leave my parents some good monies. i've wanted to do that since i was 16. and now i only live an hour away from my dream cabin. 3. move in with my ex gf who needs another roommate. i have a job waiting for me there, lots of friends, and it's where i called home for 6 years. i love the college town and i love the surf. however, i might feel like shit when i hear her getting banged by her bf of the week. 4. stay in LA and do nothing. my parents are retiring to FL. they wanted me to have a job in order to keep up with the mortgage so we can keep the house. i can rent out 4 rooms which would bring in enough for the mortgage, utils, insurance, and give me a bit of spending money. i don't think they'll go for that idea of renting unless i have a $30-45k+ job though. 5. get a job. a real job. one in IT. the only problem is that i hate IT. it's what i'm good at and i'll fit in fairly well. they expect admins to have my type of personality so i can be myself. but i'll be bored for the rest of my life. 6. join a circus?
