So am currently temping, and have been temping for a couple of years now for agencies and I guess I'm happy enough, but I do realise that this is no long term solution. It's unfulfilling and work is such a huge part of life, that I want to do something fulfilling. Plus, one day I'll probably have to buy a house and support a family etc and the money is often not great. I could probably get a permanent office job if I started applying, but I really don't want to be doing this for the rest of my days. Not blowing my own trumpet, but at present I'm working an administration role at Leicester University and professors and academics keep saying "What are you doing here, you're to talented/clever etc to be working here, when you gonna do something?". And to be honest, I can't really answer them. I was at Uni for nearly two years myself, but it almost drove me to depression, I couldn't stand it anymore - so I chucked it. It aint for everyone. Even now I don't regret it, after earning money and standing on my own 2 feet a bit more for the last couple of years, I have zero desire for full time education again. It's not that I'm unambitious - I've had some wacko ideas, ie writing books for a living, trying to make it professional at golf etc, but the chances of making a living off these are so slim, I suppose I've gotta be a bit more sensible. I know I wanna make a change and step out of my comfort zone, but I have no idea what I wanna do, or how to do it. I'm really at a lose end. What's everyone else up to?
