Looking for advice.
Submitted by Enef on December 4, 2006 - 15:26
Hey there guys, i don't think i've ever made an actual post on these forums before, have i?
Well, i come seeking advice, it has nothing to do with comics(I'm currently in the process of restarting my own webcomic again) but more about personal decisions.
A little information on myself, first.
I'm 17 years old, i live in the United Kingdom, West Yorkshire, just this year my parents split up, my mum has met someone new and wants to move to a different part of the country to be with him.
Now my advice that i am seeking here is ...what should i do? Should i go with her to another part of the country, keep working full time and earning enough money to get my own place and then just keep scraping by?
Should i look around at colleges locally to where she will be living? Looking at colleges close to here where i can find accomadation?
One of the things i am really considering is moving to the US, but thanks to all the rules, regulations and laws in place it is incredibly difficult to just move there, get a job and work and live over there. If anyone has successfully done this i would be happy to listen to them and talk to them about it, as this is what i would want to do most.
Another thing i was interested in was moving to an american college or university, has anyone done this? Can they suggest any colleges that are particularly well known for their international students? I aren't sure what i would want to study exactly, maybe some graphic design stuff, some English, maybe some Art classes to give some help to my "Skills".
Most of all i am looking for people who have experience the same kind of thing, and have taken the oppurtunity to move to another country, how easy was it? etc etc.
Thanks for reading.
