@Craycray17 I was just looking back on some videos of my trip earlier this year and how it was so fun to just travel around with mates and play music, it was just a heap of fun. I'd love to do that heaps more than I am but my current job is holding me back from doing that, so now I'm thinking about taking up a casual job like in a cafe like I did last year. its all so confusing because I don't want to throw away my apprenticeship either. I've gotten so close to the end in one of my apprenticeships and dropped out and now I'm nearly a 2nd year apprentice in this trade. I'm not sure what I want to be honest. I want to travel and have a good time while I'm young but I also want to set the foundations for a secure job and future that i have worked hard to get to. I am so privileged being the first person in long time in my family to actually be employed so shouldnt I make the most of that and use that to help shape my future? but then in the end the decision is mine and whether or not my parents had jobs is irrelavent.
sorry if that made no sense
