Oh…all these choices. Live with my mad family with a partner and a kid that messes up and steals my energy, or escape to safe haven in my hometown in my own little apartment? the second sounds more appealing. I just don’t have my own apartment yet.  I tried to write down positives and negatives about the two jobs…I don’t know…which one is the best?
