(There is some career advice somewhere in here, I guess, so kids can read on.)
I guess what I want to tell everyone is, maybe sometimes in life, when you are lost and down, if you just stay laid back and have faith, perfect things will find their way to you.
I guess when we were growing up, we would study something that seems to interest us or something that seems useful, even though before or ususally after graduation we have no real idea what job we really want to do.
No "career" path.
I guess you could be one of those who go down that path of actually becoming what you set out to do or studied for, like an architect or a lawyer. But I think those professional careers are a quite narrow path, because unless you completely give up that career, you will still be a lawyer at 55 when you were already a lawyer at 25. There is no... transformation.
Or you could be one of those who doesn't really seem to care about working a job they like or have passion for, they will do whatever pays the best money. These people are more about money than dreams. They are happy if there is money. But let's not discriminate against these people.
As for myself, well, I quit a UK top 20 university because that city, and that campus, and that life, was just so so awful, so dreadful. I swear if I had stayed any longer, there would be irrepairable damage to my soul.
I literally just took everything in my dormitory one night and left on a plane to go home.
So I didn't stay after the summer.
And then I went almost 2 years, in 2009 and 2010, without a single job. I didn't even look for one. I gave up.
I was thinking, fxxk you I am 22, I have time to waste, I don't need to do shit.
Anyway, towards the end of 2010, the only friend I had got me a sales job at a tiles company.
Fxxking TILES! Yes, the ones that you put on your wall and floor. Fxxk me!

I have found my dream job 2 years ago. At some points I've changed my mind but I went back to the dream job I wanted 2 years ago. I'm hoping to achieve a few years from now. I need a Phd to become a university professor. I'm still working on my way to a Phd. At the same I wanted to have a job a this stage I am at. I really wanted to become a flight attendant during fall of last year, but I was worried that I wouldn't have time to focus on my university work, so I gave up. Too bad because I was going to get well paid, and working in an airplane sounds cool. I guess I would call that a "semi dream job", lol. Maybe once I reach my masters I would apply to teach at a learning institute as a summer job, so I could gain more teaching experience.
I would love teach in a lecture hall. It's part of my work place goals. I've been there once to take a mid term exam, and I thought it was pretty better than a regular class.0

Then I fell ill and the dream job was snatched by a co worker while I was in hospital.0
