Disclaimer: this thread has nothing whatsoever to do with any game’s currently in progress.
I’d like to get the opinions of the community on something I’m trying to decide on, specifically the fellow adults or really anyone who might have experience to draw upon.
Some background: I’m currently 27, and have two jobs (one full-time, one part time) I originally had just the full-time job, but found I didn’t like going from one paycheck to another, and a lot of the time if I wanted to do something fun like going to the movies, I couldn’t. So, I got the part-time job, because I wanted to make extra money, and because I was convinced at the time that I was going to lose my full-time job, or was going to quite (I hated the job) so I wanted a fall-back just in case. Now, however, I make more at the full-time job, and apparently my worries about losing the job was over blown as I still work there, and I recently took a vacation from both jobs, which was apparently much needed since my general frustration with my full-time job has eased considerably, though it’s still not exactly a job I enjoy. Now, about my part-time job. It’s delivering pizzas, and I actually enjoy this job some because I love to drive, the problem is most of the additional money I make goes either to gas or fixing my car (I drive about 100+ miles for every four hours I work this job, which puts a lot of strain on my car after a while)
So enough with the background. The decision I’m trying to decide on is whether to quit one of these job, or quit both and just get a different job entirely. Where I currently live job prospects are low, especially since I have little in the way of needed skills. I’ll be moving to Arizona soon, and hopefully there’s better jobs there. Another reason I’m thinking of quitting one of my jobs is because I don’t get a lot of spare time to things I actually want to do, like working on my game, but quitting a job will mean things will be a little tighter financially.
Sorry to bug you guys about this, but I’ve come to value the opinions of this community, hence why I’m asking here. I’ll be happy to clarify anything if need be. And don’t hold back to avoid being harsh, I need unfiltered honest opinions. Thanks for any help you guys can give me.
