I always thought I had a thing for computers and technology. So I quit university and went to a local community college for two years. I received an IT diploma and got my first job at a call center doing tech support for cell phones. During that time I met my ex girlfriend, and started liking the job less and less because my supervisor was an ass. I started applying for several jobs and finally landed one with a hospital. There I was doing helpdesk work, but not really any troubleshooting. I would take calls, make the tickets, and then transfer the call to whoever was available to fix the issue. I felt that it was repetitive work, even though it paid good money and I was financially secure. When my ex broke up with me, things changed and I became depressed. I felt useless because I've seen my other friends start at the same position as me, and they've moved into jobs they actually enjoy. After 5 months of working I took some time off to try to get my act together. After a couple of months with family I decided to quit my job and go back to school. I had some savings but with monthly bills and living expenses that soon depleted. I'm going to a private school to do an Electrican trade and the tuition is really expensive, but I didn't have much of a choice. The local community college has a 3 year waiting list, and I didn't want to wait around for that. I had to take out a student loan to cover the rest of my tuition and other things, but looking back, I think I made a big mistake. My ex really pushed me to the limits when it came to having confidence in myself. I didn't really have any confidence to begin with, because I was unhappy with where I was in life. I will get my Electrician trade in a few months, but am wondering if I should have kept my old job. I know money isn't everything, but now I'm in debt, and I'm back in the same boat again, trying to look for a job. I feel even more depressed thinking about how far I've come, and at what cost. I hate my life .
