Whats up guys,
im looking for a little advice today. So here's the deal, I just got back from a ski trip with my college buddies in Colorado. We drank/ skied all over the whole state, and it was f**kin awesome. It seemed like a whole different lifestyle than what I'm used to/sick of here in New England.
I'm a 24yo single dude, working and living in CT. I grew up in Maine, and love hunting/fishing/trucks/skiing, all that shit. I went to school in the adirondacks, doing much of the same, while getting my engineering degree. I got a job right out of college, in fairfield CT and took it. My job is really awesome, I work with CNC machines make all kinds of stuff out of expensive metals, but here's the kicker: CT sucks balls....or at least where I am. The people are snobs and its generally a suburban hell.
When I'm at work, life's great, but when I leave I can't enjoy any of the things I really love, i.e the outdoors.
Over the past week, I've really been contemplating a change. I would love to be out west, but I'm not sure if its worth the risk of leaving a great job, especially if i don't have one lined up (I don't need the student loan companies going Tony Soprano on my ass for their money back!).
So do I wait it out for a few years, untill i have more professional experience, or throw caution to the wind and say fuck it? Anyone else make a similar decision and how'd it play out? Specifically any engineers? All advice would be greatly appreciated!
