    Moving out need advice

    Hey, I've been living in The Netherlands for a few months now, I lived in Belgium before where I rented a dormroom. The reason I left is because I wasn't doing anything with my life, I didn't go to school, I was in a shitty relationship and I was depressed.

    So, I decided to pick myself up and make some important decisions. That happened, I broke up with the girl I had been with for 4 years, I decided to drop out of college since I wasn't going anyway and studying just wasn't for me and I moved back home to live with my mom and stephdad since I figured I could save some money there by not paying rent etc. . My plan was to start graphic designing (3 months ago) I did that and it's going great, I earn about +-$1500/month doing that though it could be more but I'm still a bit lazy, I'm also looking for other ways to make more money :).

    Anyway, my mom is going to move out since her relationship with my stephdad is about to end. I miss my friends back in Belgium and I live 2 hours away from them, I also met this new girl and she lives close to where I lived in Belgium aswell. So I rented an apartement in Belgium, I'll be moving back next month. I should be able to support myself from the money I make of graphics but I'm still looking to make some more, I've never paid bills on my own everything is new to me and I want to have some back up money.

    Would it be better to look for an actual job or is it better to put more work in growing my graphics business and other stuff I want to do?

    I'd say at least lock in a part time job so worst case secnario you have at least a little something to fall back on. If you're 'self employed' it will also be a very good idea to get a part time job to keep your classical job experience going without any gaps in it.

    i guess we have been in the same shit toxic relationship , and depression , i live in germany and i got kicked from uni because of the shit i have been through and because i was weak , but to be honest i loved what i did in uni , best advice in my opinion at least that is what i am doing untill i start uni again next semeser , i am have part time job 8h 3days a week, doing some osrs work on sythe, preparing math,java programming and other courses for next semester, pick your self up back together i wouldn't jump right away in another relationship i am just focusing on self development and trying to organize my life,time table,and setting daily goals,weakly goals,monthly goals, i take a piece of paper and write down everything i need to do the next day and for the week, and you say you are good graphic designer if i were you i would keep improving my skills, and look for a part time job, also best advice start hitting the gym to get out of depression it really helps a lot , best of luck !!

    My opinion would be if you enjoy doing graphics then focus on improving that and see where it takes you. It’s always nice if you actually enjoy what you do.

    Cheers man

    If you're enjoying graphics, and it's your passion, and you're profiting from it, take all of that into consideration and continue to pursue a graphics career.

    On the other hand, I highly suggest you get a part-time job, which is flexible enough that you can do your graphics, and make the same amount + have the part time job on the side.

    You're going to want to develop a strict budget as well for the first while, see how well your graphics goes for a few more months, use your part-time job to try and pay most of your bills, develop meal plans to cook and eat at home, living on your own can be very hard or very easy, it'll all ultimately be up to you.

    - Do Graphics
    - Part Time Job
    - Cook / Eat / Spend time at home occupied
    - Save money

    that's your best bet.

    Always secure the BAG before moving. You can always do what you love "gfx designing" as well as get a part time job somewhere. As long as you find some sort of balance, in my opinion life is all about balance. Balancing time, relationships, money and goals and always remember in the end "your in the exact spot in life that God wants you to be in".

    Cheers,

    It isn't an option for me to not move out unfortunately, thanks for the advice though!


    To everyone else that has responded, thanks for all the advice. I really do appreciate it. Think I might get a part time job but haven't decided yet. Feel like maybe I could invest my time in growing my business instead of getting a job since I'm able to support myself from the money I'm currently making and there's still more to be made.

    If you can grind more with GFX, do that to make extra money on top of what you're making now, if not get a part time job and do the same amount of GFX you do now, that way you have extra way of making money.
