I have some options here.
I can stay at my job in the factory, probably very slowly work my way up into a decent salary, benefits, etc.
I will have insurance and money to travel with, and vacation days to take.
My ducks will be in a row. My life will be planned out. I will be stable.
I can take the money I have now and use it to move somewhere else, somewhere the culture is more stimulating,
I can find a more fun, more exciting job,
and eventually I can become a bartender in the Florida Keys. 😀
Hey, one can always dream, right?
You are supposed to work hard first and then get your reward, but I don’t see the point of letting my hours slip past me while I toil, all for the few weeks a year and the few years at the very end when I will be able to do what I really want…
Shouldn’t we be spending our whole lives doing what we really want??
