  1. Hello all - I think is a great community, I'm really happy I found it. I was just curious as to what the fellow listener does for work? I"m a financial analyst, in DC, which means i stare at numbers and spreadsheets all day.
  2. Negative: I have a degree that I never turned into a career, too much debt to go back to school, a really shady job history for the last three years, and no references or job-contacts. Plus weird anxieties and ADHD. Positive: I have a degree, lots of ambition, a certain amount of intelligence, experience in a few different fields (cooking, writing, programming and web development, online publishing), a good work ethic, and a moderate appreciation for technical tasks. Situation: I'm moving to Ottawa soon to live with family, because I'm too poor to maintain myself in Kitchener anymore. My expected trajectory is to get some shitty job that I'll try not to hate, and just keep focused on making art and writing until I can turn that into a career. However, I'd really like to be able to acquire more meaningful work than I've been doing the last few years. I don't have any money so I can't go to school or take any courses. I don't know what options are available to me. I feel like I need someone with whom to discuss this stuff, but my family are all lunatics (awesome people, but useless for planning or discussing real things), and I've grown away from my old friends. Question: There must be somebody, some service or person, even some website where I can talk to somebody who can help me form a plan. I've been a high-powered, rudderless freak, and I'm trying to get a grip on my situation. There's obviously tons more detail to go into here, like the mental state I was in ten years ago when I embarked on the debt-acquisition process, and how I failed to turn University into a Career. But I'm trying to find a way to not repeat the same mistakes, to put my best foot forward... and I have no fucking clue how to do that lol. Any advice? Has anybody successfully gone through a similar thing?
