hi anon! im sorry to hear you are in a similar situation and i appreciate the advice. i have formed a plan to follow for myself>work at the factory job for 4-5 months (i got hired!) (allows me to save up a lot and lend my boyfriend some money toward bills and also invest more money into my crafts)
i figure this will make my hobbies a lot more exciting right now and since i can fund them without worrying about how much im spending i will enjoy them more. i will just be extremely exhausted, a lot of 6 day work weeks…
>begin like 2-3 online classes toward my A.A online
its nothing crazy but its worth a shot, and its all things i promised myself ill do for my wellbeing. in the end if i realize im not enjoying classes, then ill just return to neet and continue being productive with hobbies, because by then i will have money and hopefully be living back in my home state with much more to do. the balance im hoping to find, however, is doing a couple online classes and spending the rest of my time with my boyfriend, or visiting family, or on hobbies. i hope it will be the balance i need, i just need to push through the job for a few months. we also plan to move with his brother back to my home state in a year or less, so he’ll be helping out with rent and i hope he wouldn’t think of me as a leech if i was just taking some classes and not working like them.
my boyfriend is very supportive though, which im grateful for, but i dont like being low on money and i would feel so proud and secure with a cushion for myself.
i wanted to space this out so it wasnt hard to read or anything (not implying you have low reading comprehension or anything) but i just woke up and sometimes feel my writing can be a bit all over the place.
thank you so much anon again, and it feels nice that you relate. even if i go back to being a neet in a year, ill be more financially secure and educated than where i started.
