They saying goes ‘fortune favours the brave’. With what I am set to do I really hope this rings true as it is a huge leap of faith. I am reading some truly inspirational posts about people whom have done this at some point of their lives. The difference here being I will definately have a roof over my head when I get there whereas they had just a car. Indeed, my own heroes Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone started out in a similar way. The most important thing out of it all would be securing some sort of job within three months. Im ready and willing to be a shelf stacker if need be. Ive seen jobs advertised in the area but there isn’t that many ‘step1’ jobs listed. I think itd would be a case of walking around each place begging, or at least handing out CVs.
Four years ago, it took similar courage to move out of a bad living situation. I’m certainly glad I did that. I can’t let my childhood selfs fate be that of my only childs. It is my only shot at being a father. My own somewhat got the ratios wrong while I was growing up…, I can’t do that.
