I am basically serious. My life is made up of many components but I cannot say I have some over arching thing I've figured out called, "What I want to do with my life." As far as having a good time you have to realize some components of your life are going to suck, i.e. work, and hopefully more components will be good times. I guess framing it like that I can say I've figured out what I want to do with my life which is I want more of my life to be enjoyable than suck.
My constant flip flopping around of desired locations is exactly indicative of how indecisive and lost I feel right now.
As it relates to "what I want to do in life," there seems to be a particularly strong sentiment amongst my generation that you can have it all (i.e., you can have a job that you enjoy and pays the bills). Granted, this isn't unique to my generation, but it's definitely echoed a lot more frequently. I think this is part of the reason why we're seeing so many start ups, because the idea is you'll find a way to monetize something you enjoy and are passionate about and potentially cash out if possible.
You definitely have a more realistic approach to life but it admittedly does sound a bit depressing on paper (that your job will most likely suck and continue to suck) and slightly defeatist.
Tl;dr: Give me a job as a test driver for BMW's M division and I will die a happy man!

Lovely weather? Abundant hot chicks? How was the traffic / driving situation?
