This is the first article I’ve read of yours (saw it on Braivo’s Twitter feed) and it’s reaffirming of my recent experiences. I have a great job; It’s downright easy. I live in an awesome location. I make solid money. But still I can’t shake this feeling of “wtf am I doing here?” In the end, like you said, I won’t have much to show for it. The fixed paycheck will eventually be spent and I’ll return to work to earn another.
Personally, I don’t plan to pack up and leave the country, but I will be looking into alternate forms of income. Similarly, when I make the move, I plan to write volumes on the experience.
I’ll be following your blog from now on and wish you the best of luck.
