So I'm a 24 yr old that moved to a small town to work as a planner for just about a year now. And by small, I mean an urban population of maybe 4,000 people. I'm originally from a large city so I've been trying to adjust but I'm honestly getting sick of it. Its hard meeting new people and making friends when there is nobody my age that lives in the town and the ones that do have babies. Have I mention that live in a retirement community? Even the average age of my co-workers is maybe 55 and thats without exaggerating. Dating is definately out of the question.
I'm also finding it difficult with the small town mentality and the lack of diversity. Have I also mentioned that I'm a visible minority?
Maybe I'm just venting from frustration and the lack of excitement in my life. I definately need to live in a city but with my experience and the way the economy is right now, its very difficult finding another job. I'm also considering the possibility of doing a Masters just so I can move out.
Does anyone have advice or suggestions to keep myself busy and make my life less miserable/lonely/dependent on alcohol? Or am I just a spoiled brat?
