You've made appreciate my country a lot more. We're not overly radical in our politics, basically we don't do anything unless America has done it. But just about all Australians are open minded, there are of course some ignorant close minded wanks, but all countries have those. I love Australia, not its politics but when I travel I do love to come back home!
Just research more into relocation I'd say, don't wing it but still reach for your goals! It's possible! my ex boss was American, he was a little confronting because he was very patriotic, I'm all for patriotism and love talking to people from other countries but this guy was a wanker, he told all of us constantly that America was the better country, dared me to name ONE Australian who did ANYTHING for the world and didn't stop saying how he wanted to desperately to get back to the US.- I get the feeling he's the kinda guy you want to rid yourself of. No one likes their home country dissed.
But I also worked with a lovely American when I was a Wedding Photographer Assistant and he did the Video, I loved listening to his stories about America because he genuinely seemed to like it here.
I'd like to relocate and figure if they can do it, then so can I. Although my ex boss did have to sell his house just to have enough money in the bank to get here. I think having a degree over here would help your chances at getting a job. Most of us only go to TAFE because it's cheaper haha $4,000 later I got a diploma here, and that's all you need.
No surprise that you can't get a good job with the attitude you have. You just ramble on and on and on bytching and moaning about how everything is so bad, blah, blah, blah!
You keep talking about going to Australia before 31 but unless YOU change your attitude you will have more of the same thing. Since you are in the US right now run up to Canada and try that country out for a year. You will find it easier to get a job there than in other countries. You can even drag your poor cat there too. A year from now your poor cat may just die a natural death or be run over by a car and you won't have to worry about it.
You can do some networking while working in Canada and see if you can find a job in Canada that has a branch location in Australia. That way you continue your employment with the same company. Maybe take some specialized training that would increase your chance of getting a job in Australia.
I have friends in Australia who want to come to America to better their lives.
Singapore is more expensive to live in than Thailand, Laos, Cambodia or Malaysia. There are some teaching jobs you can get in Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia. The salaries are low but so is the cost of living in those places. Yes, you can find drinking water in Seven Eleven style stores and supermarkets. You must have some other source of income coming in otherwise how could you afford to fly all over Europe?
I have been to over 35 countries and live overseas every now and then but I will never dis my own country like you do! Consider there may be NO place in the world that would make you happy!
In the USA, if the job and housing problems are not solved in the very near future, I predict that there will be thousands of Americans wanting to emigrate to greener pastures. Why should we feel that we have an obligation to supporting a country that throws our jobs away like so much trash? If you're not young, beautiful, wealthy, educated and talented in this country, you're subject to being passed over by those who are.
