Well, I've recently hit a slump in my life, and I just don't know what to do with myself. I can't seem to find anything interesting anymore, I can't find a hobby, just nothing entertains me. Here's the story. I used to be very deeply interested into computers, Graphics Design, Making money and such, I was on the computer constantly, I mean 24 / 7. I eventually got around to making a cpa account, and within around 3 months, I had $323.00. Well, I then began to run into real world problems and started slacking off in every aspect of my life. I got mixed up in the wrong things, got into trouble I shouldn't have. Basically, Screwed my life up. I sold my computer, lost track of time and of my self and just fell off the face of the earth basically. Well, now these past 3 months, I've done a complete 180 turn in my life, I've got a part time job, really cleaned my act up. Now, I'm struggling with the problem of depression, or a slump. I can't seem to find myself a hobby that I enjoy or well, anything to even entertain me. So, I've defaulted back to what I used to love, hoping that I might once again be able to get into computers as much as I used to. So, I've been saving money for the past... Year or so, and I've got around 3,400 dollars saved up in that time. I'm stuck making a decision right now, and that decision is, whether I should buy a computer (Laptop, or Desktop.) or if I should keep saving my money and invest it into other things. (I am the biggest tight wad ever when it comes to money.) I've been looking at building me a computer but I would have to drop $1,300 on it which would really hurt me to see my money drop that much. But you gotta spend money to make money I guess right? Basically what I expect to do with this computer is start reading up and studying the guides on this forum, and Brushing up on my Graphics Design so I can start my own business / start making money online. I've always been sort of an entrepreneur, I love working for myself. But honestly, what I'm really trying to ask from you guys is, If you were in my situation, what would you do? I only make about 700 bucks a month at this part time job I'm currently employed at, and I don't have my own computer for me to sit down and relax and study things on. Would it be a good investment for me to buy my own computer? Or should I just save my money and keep my day job, not even bothering with trying to make money? It's just depressing to think this is all I am doing with my life. I'd like to be someone, something. I'd like to have purpose in my life. Any advice or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. Sorry to spill my whole life story out on you guys like this, but I'm no longer a part of any online communities and I would like to start getting active in this one.
