Dear fellow bloggers & readers,
As you may know, I was planning on going to the UofA in September. Which all sounded good in theory until I factored in $30,000 in debt for 4 years of study. I do not owe money to anyone, and nor do I intend to. Since I consider the monetary system to be fake to begin with then owing money for school is not an option for me.
Instead I applied for a working visa to Germany to teach english and work on my online business. From now on, I am only looking 3-6 months down the road. Beyond that things begin to get foggy and uncertain. I know eventually that I will have to get a “real job”, whatever that means, but for now I am content with travelling and gaining new experiences.
Going back to school has been on my mind recently and finishing my electrical technology diploma. I have the skills but need to find the right company and apply. But not now. When I have seen more of the world and feel like settling down for a bit. Maybe Montreal, Hamilton, or possibly Vancouver.
I realized the other day what my first online business is going to be about. Originally, I was thinking a travel website but it seems the market is saturated with that sort of thing. The answer was right under my nose all along. And this blog provided part of the key. I found my niche: 18-30 year old adults struggling with what to do with their lives.
I should know. I am one of them. But that hasn’t stopped me from trying and doing things in the last 5 years since highschool. I have a lot of knowledge to share with people my age looking for alternatives to university and working dead-end jobs instead of doing what they love. I have travelled the different roads and would like to provide a road map of sorts. A guide to figuring out what to do with your life and the skills required to pull it off.
I want to announce that Yesman1989 is getting a face lift, (moving to a brand new site) and will be shifting the focus to provide how-to guides and personal consulting. In addition, I will posting more regular updates about travel, alternatives to university, and muse creation. I am looking forward to this new website as a resource/forum for young people to come together and share their thoughts, feelings and ideas. 😀
Thank you so much for your continued support,
