I was only supposed to be there temporarily but nearly 3 years and ive still got no idea! Cant complain too much though when theres over 1 million unemployed and people working crappier jobs than mine to scrape by.
I know exactly how that feels, I did very much the same for a few years, it was easy to be lulled into staying put. I didn't really have a clue what to do with myself, and working where I did was comfortable. The pay wasn't great but it kept me in beer. I had friends of the same age who worked with me, and we had a cracking social but I wasn't happy. I eventually cracked and just handed in my notice, I was owed about 2 months holiday, so I took it, handed in my uniform and was gone.
I forced the issue, signed up with a temp agency to keep a few pennies rolling in and started looking around seriously for a new start. I also worked as a motorbike courier for a while and that was Ok until I had another big accident which wrote my bike off. Inspiration hit me whilst lying on a mates sofa with my worldly possessions in a carrier bag and I saw an advert for the RAF. Being the suggestible sort, I hopped on the next train to my nearest AFCO and started looking into it.
14 years later, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
I'm not suggesting joining up by any means, just that sometimes you have to force yourself out of a rut and just go for it.
