Hi. I will share with you my life story, any suggestion is welcome. I`m writing from the south of France.
When I was 18 years old i dropped out of the best college in my country . Then i entered the second best college. I dropped out after a year. I was very addicted to pot by the time. Then i took a job at a call center and used the money i got to buy guitars and finance a trip to Europe where i mostly got high. Then I went to work to the Mayan Riviera at a youth hostel, experience that ended in my employer jailing me for a night for appearing drunk at his office and yelling at him because he owed me some money. My parents have always been loving and understanding. Then, at age 22, I took a job as english teacher that didnt lead anywhere yet i stayed there for three years, in which i befriended and then seduced a woman 10 years older than me. Then I applied to a university in France, got accepted and now i am 28 years old, no college degree, having flunked most of my subject the second year, unable to choose a career path and with very very grim employment opportunities both in Europe and in my home country. In short, i forewent an "Ivy league" education in my country for pathetic public education in a foreign land and without a career path or true orientation. I have no friends left. I have no diplomas. I have a reputation of a drug addict in my home town. All the people I grew up with are extremely succesful.. My only ability is speaking in fluent French and English. What would you do if you were me? Help.

    I agree with the answering of your own questions. Then there is only two more things to do that I advise: wait and hope.
