Im at a time in life where Im as flexible as possible with where I can live, and also at a decent crossroad deciding where I’m going to be living for the next while.
Basically I’ve lived in so-cal my whole life and I definitely don’t hate it, but I think I need to change my living situation. Right now, I really cant envision myself bettering my situation. I just finished college with a degree in the IT field, but I cant really get a job; partly because of the job market and partly because of my inability to sell myself and lacking the motivation to change.
I want to move up north, whether that be northern California, the bay area, or up to seattle. I like the west coast and both places like san fran and seattle seem like the kind of places I would like a lot (Pretty similar to here, but still different).
One part of me knows that I’m just going to take my problems with me wherever I go. But I feel changing my setting and living situation will help/force me to deal with my problems in a better way, rather than using all the crutches I have here at home, which are attributing to me staying the way I’ve been since high school.
The other part of me is extremely apprehensive about doing something like this. I mean, if I cant get a job here, I’m not that confident ill get a job in another place, let alone quickly enough to pay for my own housing. My bank account wont last THAT long since I spent a lot on a trip a few months ago. So I don’t know…
I also don’t really want to leave the family to the point that I would only see them periodically, whenever I had the time/chance to visit them. Would kind of suck to only see my nephew so rarely that he looks like a different kid each time I see him (since they grow up fast)
I dunno. I need to grow up and I don’t see doing that in this situation. But I also am not sure about doing so much as to move away to another city/state. And because I haven’t grown up im not confident I’ll be able to do all of this
Was anyone else in this situation? Or is currently in it?
