Mmm...no, I don't think so. To the contrary, actually. I'm never content with what I have.
2. You think work is the only thing that matters.
Not at all. Work is boring and I try to do as little of it as possible.
3. You’re always chasing the latest toy.
No. I haven't bought anything in years.
4. Television is your best friend.
No. I don't even watch that shit any more.
5. You often escape into a fantasy world
Not at all. This is something to do with people who dream of doing something but don't actually do it. There are explanation paragraphs in the actual website I'm looking at.
6. You always have a reason not to take action.
No, I get shit done.
7. You often find yourself reliving the past.
Mmm...well, maybe. But only when I'm stuck for things to write about on TIY--TMB.
8. You let others tell you how to live.
Well, that's a good sign, I guess. I totally failed the "Are you wasting your life" test. Or passed. I don't know which it would be. But according to that website trying to sell a self-help ebook, I don't need it.
I've pretty well done everything that I've wanted to do. Leave shitty America. Get the world's easiest job. There has to be more, though.
I don't know how an average person does it. How do you get out of bed every morning living in the same ghetto you grew up in, doing a shitty job, maybe a shitty wife, shitty family? I couldn't do it.
I'm just not content with this. There has to be more to life than shitting, barely working, and living in Scotland.
Let me see what the IWantOut Reddit forum has.
Eh...almost entirely young people asking questions about how they can move to another country. Mostly dreamers who will never move, particularly since the answer to their questions are invariably, "It's almost impossible."
Look at this shit:
Hey guys! So last month I finally achieved my dream of traveling to London. I fell even more in love with the city and I felt like I fit in and found home for the first time in my life. I've been looking into work visas and it seems extremely complicated to get one. I'm a nonprofit organization major, I believe you call them charities, and I have applied to some positions in London but I have to select that I'm not eligible to work in the UK which makes this even harder. I'm not sure if your libraries are considered nonprofits/charities in the UK but they are in the USA. I work for one now and ideally would love to work for one in the UK too.
My understanding of how to get a work visa is that I need to apply to jobs, get them to sponsor me, and then apply for a work visa. Am I right? Does anyone have any advice for me when it comes to getting a visa in the UK?
My friends have suggested that I use my passport to live in the UK for 6 months (the length the passport allows) and try to find a position while I'm there. The only issue is that I'm not legally allowed to work for the 6 months that I'm there.
tl;dr: How do I get a work visa in the UK??
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that "non-profit organizations" are called "charities" in the US too, you fucking douchebag.
She's not going anywhere. It's for the best, really. London isn't the Mary Poppins adventure that she seems to think it is.
This stuff just isn't what I'm looking for. I'm already able to move where ever I want. It's a question of finding something interesting to do.
