So here it goes, yet another thread about me needing advice on my life and my relationships that I ALLWAYS seem to mess up. Welcome to the life of a
telemarketer, as I'm typing away on my iPhone I have to take a brief pause every minute to answer a call from an angry person somewhere in America
threatening my excistance. Sorry to anyone reading that I might have offended by interrupting dinner time...anyways, to start from the very beginning
would be overkill. So il pass up the boring parts and catch you up.
5 years ago I stumbled accross a blonde girl that would change my life in so many ways. The last post I had here on ATS I was going through some
really dark times, in a rut with my relationship and fed up with life. No car, no job, no house and a failing relationship. ATS had my back and so
many people wrote me personal messages praying for me and giving me advice. The best advice anyone has ever givin me. Now I have a descent paying job,
nice car, my own place, and a failed relationship. The girl of my dreams and the love of my life left me. No one else is to blame for this but myself.
After five years a relationship is pretty tuff to end. After all of the planning and time you spend with that other person to start from scratch is
insane. Something I'm trying hard to overcome since it has happened a few times but this time it's the real deal.
So anyways I'm gettin through that, it's difficult but I can do it. I'm planning on going in a backpacking trip around the world now, not just because
my girlfriend broke up with me but because its something I have ALLWAYS wanted to do but never had courage to actually do it. I've been planning my
life an everything I've ever done around this relationhip and now that it's over with il have to start planning for me. So the question to all of you
is simply this, is this a good idea?
My passion In life is to be a photo journalist and screen writer, I'm sure I can meet all different kinds of connections and new people. And I'm 24 I
want to experience something insanely fantastic to look back on and also make connections for a job for after the 2-4 years is up. I want to backpack
across the world. And experience something other then slaving away in society, drivin to and from work 45 min, spending an hour or two in traffic a
day, spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on gas. I want to be free and do new things. Since me and my best friend signed a 14 month lease that
my girlfriend barley stayed for a month an dipped just a week ago I have 13 months to save up and plan..so anyone here ever do this? How much should i
try and save? i want it to be as cheap as possible, Can anyone recommend any good sites? I googled but nothin that great came up for me. Sorry this is
so long! I just had to vent. Thanks ATS for being my therapist...I have problems lol
