Help me decide on my future!

Hi pit.

So I haven't got any plans for the time period of September - the rest of my life. I will need to earn money for food and beer and stuff but really can't narrow down what I should do. I'm teaching in Asia right now, going home for the summer to party and earn some money then who knows.


Vote on the poll and give me some ideas!

First thing you gotta do is cut down on costs.
Save money for beer by cutting down on your food intake.
Then invent something and sell it and live comfortably off the royalty for life.
No need to thank me, it's what I do

Dude I have been trying to live without working for a long time. Ideas for inventions just aren't coming to me



So unless you have any inventions you'd like to share I think I'll have to do something else as well.

Yeah it really is that shit.

I will supply for a bit in June because 6 months of travelling has drained my money.


But yeah - shit education system, no respect, badly behaved kids, insane hours, boring wet cold county... Nahhh...



Teaching in Taiwan is actually a lot of fun but I don't know if I should stay in Asia or go to somewhere cool in Europe or do something else entirely

7/10 idea I'll get straight on that. Just need some ideas on what to do while it's being built.




Sorry for the triple post quoting is hard on my phone.

You make a good point.
I'm an English teacher and you can do that anywhere but usually for a bit of a longer chunk of time. I've heard of people earning money in hostels cutting crusty gap yah hair and earning enough to just eternally travel around doing it. It sounds pretty awesome.



Also on the UK thing I really don't want to do any more winters in the UK. I have pretty severe SAD and it feels like I am just existing for months on end desperately waiting for summer to come back. Waste of a life.
