I really, really want to go travelling. At the moment I'm unemployed though.
Should I go now, because I have no commitments? Then I can just get a job when I get back?
Or should I get a job because otherwise I'm a lazy faggot? And then try and take time off work to travel in the future (which of course will make everything more expensive because I will probably still have to cover rent in wherever I'm living, which will probably be in London, where rent is fucking expensive)?
>How much dolla do you have in the bank?
About £7,000 I think
>How long do you estimate it would take you to find a job?
A couple of weeks to a month?
>How far do you want to go/how much do you want/need to spend?
Thailand for a month would be awesome, and I don't think it would cost that much
I suppose I could but if I want to go for a month, I'd have to use almost all my holiday up.
Okay there's another aspect to this story. I'm living with my mum (my parents divorced 4 years ago). She's always bugging me to get a job, which is fair enough since I'm 7 months unemployed. If I mention the idea of travelling she gets pissed and tells me to get a job.
Should I listen to my mum or not? If I just go, she'll probably get pissed. Maybe she'll say I can't live there again (but I doubt it, she never goes that far). But if she did I could just stay at my dad's.
It sort of feels like I would be rubbing it in my mum's face a bit, since she has had a pretty fucking miserable life for many years, if I just went swanning off on holiday for 1 month.
