I live in the UK. I'm 23 and trying to plan my future. My goal is to move to the US (California) and live there. I have spent a few months living in Los Angeles and loved it. I love how creative it is and it really inspires me being there. Now I need to plan my future to get there. Marriage to an American girl is out of the question. I'd like to hear your stories about what you do and how you got to the US whether it be with work etc. Hopefully this will help me see the possibilities. I'm thinking of doing a degree next year and thinking of what would be best in terms of letting me work in the US without years of VISA hassle. I'm interested in Philosophy but this will probably just lead to teaching. There's also music related courses (recording etc) Any other suggestions or ideas? I feel like I can't cope with all the things I have to think about and plan ahead so could do with some help. Right now, some of my music is going to be used for a documentry and short film from an LA Production Company. It's unpaid for the owner said she's might be able to sponsor me in the future. Not totally sure how this works but I'm glad to have got my foot in the door. Any advice is really appreciated as I feel like I'm getting older and going nowhere and making no progress.
