    Job doesn't sound permanent so it's not like you're looking down the barrel of a 30 year career where you can't go out at night. Do it for your resume at the very least.

    I'm going to go in tomorrow with a series of questions regarding things, like skipping breakfast and sleeping in to requesting days off. Even on weekends I need to walk by their rooms at 11 and make sure their doors are locked. The kids themselves seem great (They are attending a pretty yuppie prep school after all), but something inside me sort of knows that I won't enjoy my lifestyle.

    I also failed to mention that I also got a gig in the Chicagoland area teaching Composition at a community college as my main source of income, but if I don't have time to attend concerts/practice/have a drink with a friend then what is the point?

    God, I fucking hate the way I sound here. I feel like some entitled asshole who is going to blow a great opportunity to live in a city rent-free, food free, utilities free, but not being able to bring a 30 rack into my residence and spinning my Vitus records at full volume is a super fucking deal breaker.

    Maybe you'll be able to actually buy some Vitus records. ;)

    But what is the point if I can't listen to them?

    I would be more concerned with figuring out how to live on my own and budget all my expenses at that point in my life. It would be nice to not have any expenses right now, but it's not realistic for long term obvs. I couldn't imagine being as old as I am now (33) and not knowing how to do any of this shit. Better to start younger and make mistakes that you can correct and aren't as detrimental to your lifestyle than wait until later and do it.

    Point of life is to drink beer and listen to AC/DC,Pentagram,Black Sabbath, and Saint Vitus and do nothing, and watch Night of The Living Dead, until you die, why would you teach students and ruin your life.

    Kickin' it in my Chinese apartment, drinkin' Chinese liquor. I'm making a comfortable living out here. Food is cheap and my rent is cheap and there's almost every modern amenity you'd want out here, though some things you have to search for a little harder out here (2nd world country and all). There's not a lot in the way of live music out here. The Chinese are not as music obsessed as we Westerners are, but there is one venue in my city that regularly brings in pretty good touring metal acts.

    What city are you living in? I think Annick of Cauchemar did a writeup about Chinese metal bands. If you are in Beijing I'm sure you can find some decent metal concerts there.

    Also, I didn't take the job. I couldn't justify being a glorified babysitter to these kids if I wasn't able to drink a beer in my room and watch Vincent Price movies.

    I'm in Shenzhen. Big city right next to Hong Kong. Teaching little kids is definitely not your only option here if you have provable teaching experience. I'm teaching adults. Pretty good salary. Let me know if you're still interested. I might be able to get you hooked up with a gig out here.

    Edit: by 'pretty good salary' I mean I have a substantial amount of money left over at the end of the month to save. That's partly due to the fact that I pay very little for rent. My apt is cheap for the simple fact that I don't have an outside view, I live in the middle of my building. But it works just fine for me, and it's a nice place. Rent can vary hugely here just in one building depending on what unit you choose. And food and drink is insanely cheap, including indigenous Chinese alcohol.

    About to re-watch Gladiator and I don't remember if it sucks or not, it's been about ten years.

    I quite like it, but it's definitely a flawed film. The opening scene in Gaul is fucking amazing though. CGI is for losers man.
